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

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.

This is a smaller, fully shaded, intimate campground whose inside sites are arranged closer together from each other with no brush or trees in between you and the next camper for the majority of the sites. It has 37 sites, of which 22 are electric. Our neighboring campers were a mixture of large bus-type RVs, smaller trailers, popups, and tent... More

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
