The glacial potholes are worth the stop. This is a lovely park, you will not want to miss! Self State Park Pass required. You do an honor envelope type system to pay. $5 is what we paid. You can walk in real easy. Very accessible!

Spent an afternoon here hiking, exploring the glacial pits, enjoying the peacefulness by the river, and the walk across the bridge to the WI side. Great for a couples day trip!

Interstate park has stunning views and is a photographers dream. We also were able to watch climbers, visit glacial potholes, and walk along the paths made for hikers....and just take in the beauty of it all....

So many paths to take and cool things to look at! River views are gorgeous! Only negative thing to say is that if you have small children watch them carefully. When you are walking on the rocks near the river there are no safety railings and it wouldn't take much for little kids who like to run around to go... More

We went for a hike along the River Trail, Railroad Trail and Sandstone Trail. The fall colors were gorgeous. The views along the trails aren't that great because of the tree coverage. The place was busy, so the overlooks were packed with people. The worst thing of all is that the highway runs right along the River and Railroad Trails,... More

There are so many things to do at Interstate State Park. Mountain climbing, canoeing, trails, picnic, camping, potholes created by glaciers over 10k years, etc. There is something for everyone. Its a great place to visit and not too far from the twin cities. although you pay 5 dollars for the entry, you may not get a place to park... More

This area of the park is separate from the campground and large picnic area but is definitely an area not to be missed. You continue from the entrance to the park into the town of Taylor's Falls and it is on the right before you cross the bridge into Wisconsin. The potholes and huge rocks are such a fun area... More

Interstate Park was extremely easy to get to. The Glacier Potholes were within feet of the park entrance. Great place for kids to climb rocks. I'm too nervous about kids getting too close to the edge, so I was on pins and needles a couple of times when my kids climbed rocks and disappeared having fun. Short walks to some... More

Today, my husband and I visited the Interstate State Park at Taylors Falls, MN. It was a very interesting State Park - and was told it was the 2nd state park created in Minnesota. The name - Interstate is because - half of the park in in Minnesota and the other half in Wisconsin - both sides bordering the beautiful... More

This place is a great place to visit if you're interested in geology. Lots of different features, plus it sits along the scenic St. Croix River. Worth checking out the Glacial Potholes. A great park to visit, particularly in the Fall, though you will have to battle a bit of traffic on the weekends.
