We stayed here as part of our Superior Hiking Trail trip. We were impressed with the lake, the various backpacker campsites, and the quiet atmosphere of the park. There are no state park employees or visitor center here. That can be positive or negative, but it is definitely a point of interest when staying here.

Truely a gem of the State Park system in MN. An extremely grueling hike up and down about 7 vistas. The hike was only 4.2 miles but it was incredibly difficult to hike and follow the trail.

Expected it to be off HWY 61. It is not. But it was a pretty drive. Not a fan of the dirt roads on the way though! Did not get out to hike due to time constraints, just drove through but it will be nice to go take in a few of the hikes someday.

Off the beaten trail, hiking and backpack camping state park well worth a visit for a day of hiking along river or stay overnight, especially at full moon for good views.

This is a more primitive park and if you are sick of people, go here. It is a bit of a drive off the main drag, you have to go to the town of Finland and follow the sign. From the parking lot, there are many trails off into the woods. There is one water fall that is pretty to... More

My three children (ages 12, 10, and 7) and I spent four days and three nights exploring Crosby Manitou SP in mid-September. Overall, the park has a rugged feel to it. The park is predominantly coniferous forests, with some deciduous trees (maple, aspen, birch, etc) mixed in. When we visited, the hardwoods were in their early fall colors and added... More
