Between the MN and Wisconsin side this park is truly on of the greatest state parks I have been to in the upper midwest. The geology of this area is a sight to behold. I usually try to visit this park 2 to 3 times a year. This summer when I first visited we hiked the river trail. We started... More

The interstate park offers many things to do and is absolutely beautiful. It costs $5 for a day park pass, which is well worth it! We choose to take the short distance walk thru the glacier potholes. Pretty amazing! You make ask yourself what is a glacier pothole and I will leave that to you to find out by going... More

We visited both the WI and MO sides of the Saint Croix river to look at the potholes. On the WI side we walked the Pothole trail. The path was rough in places, but not difficult. The potholes were deep, but not as spectacular as those on the Minnesota side. However, children appeared to love them. The WI side gave... More

We camped (tent) on the WI side in the North campground with electric. It was a beautiful site and we enjoyed that part, and the bathrooms and shower were fine. We had a nice campfire and walked around enjoying the scenic view. The staff were very, very friendly too. But oh my goodness, the entire night all we heard was... More

I visited on the Minnesota side of the St. Croix River. The glacial potholes were very interesting and well done. I also hiked the River Trail and the Raliroad Trail. While the scenery was beautiful, the proximity to the highway diminished the expereicne because of the constant traffic noise. Next time, I'll try the Wisconsin side.

The park, home to the potholes - a geologic phenomenon produced by a flood of water from a melting glacier that carved these potholes - shafts that go straight down for 50 + feet. The kids in the park seemed to be having a great time climbing on the rocks. $5 to get in but that gets you a pass... More

This park goes hand in hand with it cross state counterpark (St. Croix Interstate Park) but has more trails and viewpoints. There are many potholes which makes you wonder how nature made them. It appeared to us you could get more and better pictures from this park. I liked it.

Enjoyed the trailers through the park, maybe a few more signs about which trail I was on might be helpful but since I'm not an avid hiker the markers may have been sufficient. Very much enjoyed, even our 16 year old daugher enjoyed the trails.

It was a beautiful trip down the St Croix, the water was higher than normal but we still found spots to pull over and picnic.
