I have Cross Country skiied and hiked and camped in the park. It is neat, well taken care of, and a great state park.

For those of you who enjoy the outdoors and Minnesota's State Parks, this one is only about 40 minutes from St. Paul. The hiking is decent, some challenging up hills. You can dip into the St. Croix. The camping is good but you do have to lug your gear up a hill to get to the grounds. The overlooks of the St. Croix are excellent. Its a nice day trip and relaxing place to go.

We love hiking in this Park and taking Photos. This they moved the the geo-cache hike to a different part of the park. I really liked the part of thepark used last time.

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.

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.
