“Nice Park”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2012

Visited and hiked Afton, nice park, the trails could be marked better. Experienced deer feeding above the beach in a meadow. Nice Views of the Mississippi River can be captured on the trail and beach. The only real bad thing I experienced are the big nasty electric lines running through the park and accross the Mississippi into Wisconsin.

“Great Hiking”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2012

Very good hiking trails close to the twin cities but far enough away to enjoy a nice walk.Backpack camping is availible but it would be a rough hike up to it unless you travel light. I prefer the camper cabins.

“Great For the nature Lover”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2012

Nice and quiet. Minimum Facilities.. There are a couple group sites that are distanced from each other. Early summer is the best time to go.
