Very nice, but short walking paved walking path along the St. Croix River. Spectacular views of the river, and rocky terrain where you can look at the naturally developed potholes formed from glaciers and millions of years of rushing water. Fun, short adventure for people of all ages. Dogs are welcome!

Interstate State Park is located on the banks of the St. Croix River and is right next to the town of Taylors Falls, Minnesota. Taylors Falls is about 60 miles northeast of downtown Minneapolis and is about 55 miles from St. Paul. To get there just go north on I-35W from Minneapolis or go north on I-35E from St. Paul...

The State Park is actually two states working together with parks for camping, boating, fishing and swimming on both sides of the St Croix River. Plenty of activities, good staff, and beautiful areas. Outside the parks, there are many private activities, retsaurants and places to travel too. Love the area.

Interesting trails and super views. This is a great 1 hour stop to stretch out. Take the walking tour. Learn about potholes, and invasive species.

We enjoyed the stroll to the potholes but the person selling the tickets was really rather rude. The walk to the end (river) was pretty easy and handicapped accessible. However, to see most of the potholes there are steps to climb. The view of the river is very nice. You can easily see it in an hour if you are... More

We have been to many state parks including this one over the years, on this particular day we were still deciding what to do but I needed to use the restroom. We pulled into the parking lot (had many available spots) and I used the facilities and my daughter got the dog out to stretch her legs. When I came... More

This park had great views of the river. The potholes and rocks are spectacular. There are lot of short little trails and spots to climb. My boys are 5 and 11 and they loved it. There is a section of the park right off of downtown Taylors Falls were the potholes and trails are and there is another section of... More

One of the best state parks in Minnesota. The river scenery is fantastic and there is a lot to do in the area. If you like state parks this is a must see.

We visited this wonderful park and hiked on the rocks and trails. Our daughter slipped and skinned her leg. Oh well- what's a trip to the falls without a little pain? Overall- beautiful scenery and nice visit.
