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.
