“Beautiful area with great trails.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013 via mobile

A nice little park with two waterfalls. A nice place to bike and hike as well. It is worth a stop if you are in the Mankato area.

“waterfall retreat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

Minneopa park has two parts, one section has a campground, the other smaller section has a nice size waterfall with a new bridge over the top, there is a trail to the bottom, the steps are older and uneven, much of the park was built during the WPA there is a pavilion with stone columns

“Beautiful state park with waterfalls”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

A scenic river valley state park with waterfalls, hiking trails, and old mill and a campground. Minneopa has much to offer. It is also part of the State Park Geocache program. Very rustic with much history in the area.
