So I live in Fargo and this state park is only an hour away which is very nice for a day trip. The trails were fairly well maintained, but a bit muddy this time of year. I very much was impressed with all of the maps around that kept me from getting lost.
I also will be bringing my mountain bike next time. The roads look like fun!

-Make sure you bring bug spray!!! The ticks and mosquitoes are awful.
-Also bring plenty of water, there's limited water stations.

This is a beautiful park with many places to hike. There is camping and a swimming area...boats to rent. Great places to picnic with family.

The camp host yelled at our 8 year old for picking up twigs (and by twigs I mean fallen pieces of wood less than four inches) at OUR specific camp site stating, "You can't forage for wood! You need to let it die naturally." Then the ranger said we made too much noise in the middle of the night. We tried to explain that two racoons got into a fight outside out tent (scaring the crap out of our kids) and that is where the noise came from (it sounded like people screaming) but he rolled his eyes and acted as if we were lying. I will stick to other campgrounds with more friendly staff from now on.

Just attended a wedding in the park. Perfect facilites- covered gathering space, clean bathrooms, kitchen area, and plenty of parking. Did I mention the fall leaves? Breathtaking!

I love driving through Maplewood State Park in the Fall --- the Maple trees are spectacular. There are great trails for horses and in the winter for snowmobiles. It has very nice campgrounds.
