We happened to pull over when we saw the park sign, and had no idea what we were in for. This is a beautiful park with an information center that provides extensive information on the geography and evolution of the topography. There are several trails to see the naturally formed potholes and all lead to breathtaking views of the St.... More

The geological interest here is in the naturally formed potholes which pepper this interstate park. The path is directly behind the parking lot, where you can see the potholes and read about how they were formed. They are interesting, up to a point. Then you kind of want to move on.

This is a small, congenial, fully shaded campground with 37 good-sized sites, 22 of which have electric. Not recommended for large bus-type RVs. Several non-electric sites are directly on the river bank, good for tent or small-trailer camping. Unfortunately, most of the riverfront sites have shrubbery that blocks the water view, but you can walk 30 feet to the water's... More

Brought my wife here for her first trip to Taylors falls and we had a blast. Its a great place to just relax and take in the nature around you. So scenic and beautiful, plus if your lucky you can see some climbers scaling the rock faces. We only had time to go to the Minnesota side of the park,... More

My husband and I absolutely love this State Park. We visited this park last fall and again this summer. The drive to this park is very scenic during fall, an absolute must for anyone who wants to see fall colors. Last year, we had hiked the park and completed the whole trail and it was beautiful. Rocks were little slippery... More

There are wonderful trails for all skill levels - about 5 miles if you do them all. Beautiful scenery and fun things to experience along the way.

Hike the pot hole trail at Interstate State Park (Minnesota side) and marvel at the unusual rock formations. Views of the river are nothing short of spectacular. Rock paths are slippery so keep a close eye on children especially near the river's edge. If you don't want to buy a park pass, park across the street in downtown Taylor's Falls... More

Visited this place during the 4th of July weekend and hiked the River trail to see the glacier potholes and took the railroad trail back. The River trail is beautiful. Some of the views of St. Croix river are just breathtaking. It is a pretty narrow dirt pathway with rocks. A good pair of shoes is definitely recommended for this... More

We spent 2 nights here at Interstate State Park June 8th through the 10th. We had campsite 13 which was along the river, unfortunately next to 2 boisterous couples staying at #14. The first night I had to send my husband over to ask them to quiet down, at 1 in the morning! Rude... I wish park staff would have... More

Just to look at the natural rock formations, the Glacial Potholes, the views of the river is inspiring. Besides there is a lot of things to do there, ie. hiking, camping, boating etc.
