“A nice surprise”

Willow River State Park

We came with our adult children & granddaughters to this park in August. Walked down the trail to the waterfalls. I had no idea that there were any falls of this size in this area of the state. A grat place to spend an afternoon, but it's a quite a steep hike out.

We have been to Willow River approximately 8 times. The campground and park offer an amazing variety of activities - the hikes are perfect with strollers or for all able walkers. The waterfalls are wonderful to view and play in. The tower climb at the falls is great exercise complemented by an excellent view at the climax. There are a variety of campsites offering fully vegetated settings, open more communal camping, also sites right on the lake for those tenting it. The playgrounds are great for the kids. The restrooms are clean (those in the newer site areas are the nicest). People are across the board pleasant and park staff are helpful but not overbearing with their authority. There are stores nearby if you forget something. Also nice to be close to Stillwater and Hudson.

Great sites, trails, and overall experience! The falls are great - bring a cooler and sit in the water all afternoon! We return every summer!

Willow River Falls are a hidden gem! I'd lived in the area for several years before doing the hike for the first time. The trail down to the falls is a bit steep, but paved on the south side. Simply beautiful!
