We visited on Saturday, June 27, 2015. The park has two sections, connected near the river, but two distinct parking area. The parking area near the canoe rental and boat launch was entirely full at 10:30 am. We then proceeded more toward downtown Taylor's Falls and parked at the Glacial Potholes section. The rock formations are awesome and we saw... More

This is a great Minnesota state park to visit; the "potholes" near the river are interesting and fun. For camping, however, it leaves a little to be desired. The sites are close to each other and the entire campsite area is very close to State Highway 95. The traffic sounds and proximity to other campers detract from the out-in-the-woods experience...

We stopped at this state park for an afternoon visit. This park has many picnic areas, nice restrooms, beautiful trails (some of them with MANY steps), lots of mosquitos (wear bug spray!). There is a tunnel under the highway connecting the trail and another section of park a short drive away where the glacial holes are along with gorgeous views... More

I live in St. Paul, MN and every year we make the trip (1 hour) North to Taylor Falls. If you have kids and you want an inexpensive activity to do this is it. If you have kids from 5-18 years old they will enjoy the time climbing on the rocks and checking out the river.

Trails weren't maintained for winter, but for casual hiking that was not a problem for us. There are several loops of less than a mile on the Wisconsin side, so for a short distance it was no problem to go slow and be careful of the ice on steps and the like. The park is absolutely stunning on a sunny... More

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!
