Needs help
Apr 2019 • Family
in comparison with Hennepin County parks. Not the best maintained park evident by overflowing trash cans and port a potty near the rim. Other than the trail and the river not much else. Anoka County needs to put $ into the park.

Bands in the park
Jul 2019
Our scout troop puts on a food concession here several times during the summer to earn money for the troop. The staff and volunteers here are well organized and managed.

The free concerts attract a pretty decent crowd and they do a great job helping those who are mobility challenged to get priority parking and redirecting others as needed. One group provides golf cart shuttles as well.

Shelters, bathrooms, grounds etc well maintained. Feels safe and is patrolled.

A walk in the Park
Aug 2019
My favorite park in the north metro, Coon Rapids Dam Regional Park has trails on the east side of the Mississippi River, north and south of the Coon Rapids Dam. My favorite trail is north of the Visitor Center (and the parking areas). The section along the river is asphalt, and the section through the forest is limestone-covered. My usual trip is up one side and down the other. Both the river trail and the forest trail are kept up year-around. The wildlife and plants are marvelous. A real attempt is made to keep this trail as natural as possible. The short loop is about 2 miles, and the longer one is about 3 miles. I visit in every season of the year!

There is so much to offer at the Coon Rapids Dam Reginal Park! The trails offer nature and peace and quiet to all who take part any time of the year. Whether you purchase a parking pass for the day or season, or park on the outer streets and walk in, there is just so much to offer!

Good Biking, Picnics, and Fishing
Jun 2018 • Family
I biked through here in the summer a number of times in the summer and did a little fishing here as well. The paths connect into the Three Rivers Park trail system, which is nice, and just outside the park is a bike service hub with a manual pump and an easy-to-read map of the local trails. Fishing in the Mississippi can be good, though I wouldn't eat any of the fish you catch out of the river. There are a number of picnic pavilions located on the northeast side, as well as some playground areas for the kids.

Take a walk, catch some fish
May 2018 • Couples
Coon rapids dam is our go-to for a quick afternoon or evening fishing spot. We've caught everything from baby catfish to largemouth! East parking, portapotties for when the visitor center is closed, picnic tables and gazebos for if it suddenly rains. Good for a trail walk or picnic is fishing isn't your game.
