“Nice park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

There are two really pretty waterfalls with picnic tables, a bridge crossing over them, and paths to walk along. You pay five dollars to park per car unless you have a state park pass, and there are plenty of trails to walk on. Its a great place for a date, outing, or get together.

“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.

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
