Minnesota National Parks and Forests | St. Cloud, MN
If you’re looking for a weekend getaway in your Mitsubishi, consider the many Minnesota National Parks and Forests. You can explore the outdoors by visiting Voyageurs, Whitewater, or Great River Bluffs State Park, which are just three of the many beautiful places that are a short drive from Don Robinson Mitsubishi.
According to the National Park Service, Voyagers National Park is over 40 percent water in terms of coverage, with a massive network of waterways. Many adventurers like to bring their own watercraft or take a park ranger boat tour, though there are also campsites and hiking trails to visit as well.
Whitewater State Park is one of the top places to visit in southeast Minnesota bringing in many outdoors explorers for day trips. Attractions include advanced hiking trails, scenic bluffs, trout fishing (in summer and winter), and a visitor center. In the spring, be sure to visit for the wildflowers.
Another top park in southeast Minnesota is Great River Bluffs, which lives up to its name. This location lets you see the Mississippi River Valley, and there are also camping and hiking opportunities. Bird watching is a popular activity, and there are also prairies with rare plants and flowers.
If you want an adventurous SUV to take on a Minnesota road trip to the beautiful parks, check out the Outlander or Outlander Sport at Don Robinson Mitsubishi.
Summer is here, which means it’s time to get out and enjoy Minnesota’s summer weather. If you’re hoping to break out the tents and head out to a campsite for some family fun, here’s a look at some of the best places to camp in Minnesota.
Tettegouche State Park. Known as one of the North Shore’s most popular camping spots, this state park is nestled alongside Lake Superior. You can hike throughout the area to see a number of scenic overlooks and beautiful lakes, or head along the Baptism River to check out its waterfalls.
Glendalaugh State Park. Located in western Minnesota, Glendalough State Park offers all kinds of natural beauty, including prairie lands, hardwood forests, and four lakes. The 2,761-acre park even has two yurts that you can stay at while you’re there, giving you the chance to have a truly unique camping experience.
Bear Head State Park. This park rests only a little bit away from the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (BWCAW), making it easy to hit both parks at once. It will give you access to miles of shoreline, allowing you to swim, cast out, or even hit the trails that line the water. Its campground even offers canoe, kayak, and boat rentals, along with 73 sites, showers, and restrooms.
Of course, if you need something reliable to take you on your camping vacation, make sure to stop by Don Robinson Mitsubishi before you hit the trails.
