Afton State Park
Learn about the best places to camp, purchase gear and take classes for winter camping in Minnesota.
A rescue by air can be the most challenging, but it can also be the quickest way to save someone when a minute means the difference between life and death.
As the state works to slowly but surely get back to business after a three-week government shutdown, state parks — and Canterbury Park — are on their way to pre-shutdown operations.
Nine people were charged in Washington County District Court Thursday in connection with the recent burglaries and vandalism at the Afton State Park following the July 1 state government shutdown.
It’s a side of the state government shutdown that we haven’t heard about, until now. State Parks are being vandalized, according to local police, and one of the latest is Afton State Park, on the east side of the Twin Cities, along the St. Croix River.
Driving up with your camper, setting up a tent or even lounging in a cabin, you can spend the night and day at more than 60 Minnesota State Parks. For Pat Arndt, with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, it was tough to narrow it down, but check out some of the best parks across the state for camping.
If Minnesota is known for one thing, it’s the great outdoors and hiking is one of the best ways to experience it. So lace up your boots and hit some of the best hiking trails in the Twin Cities.
