Flandrau State Park

1300 Summit Avenue
507-233-9800

The gentle flowing Big Cottonwood River meandersthrough this southern park. The sand-bottom swimming pond, picnic area, campgrounds and group center attract many visitors every summer to this very popular state park. The terrain is diverse, offering views of wooded river bottoms, oxbow marshes and open grasslands. Hikers and cross-country skiers enjoy the flat trails on the bottom of the valley or more challenging routes on the oak-shaded bluffs. Visit historic stone buildings crafted by Works Progress Administration(WPA)crews. Vegetative features include goat prairies, small white lady's slippers, and the floodplain forest.

Very fortunate to have a park so close. Nice camping, but some goofy rules. We pay for a sticker for a year but only get to use the whole park for 8 months because they close off the road. No snow to speak of this year so far, but road is still closed. Talked to a few people and they are not happy about this either. Open the back road for nature driving.

Great state park! The camping during the week was quiet and pleasant. Fire rings seemed rather new and bathrooms were consistently cleaned. Pool was nice but the "sand" was more like gravel and not friendly. Probably because someone wanted to save a few bucks by not bringing in real sand. Sand would have made it 5 stars. Plenty of easy hiking available. Would go again but not for the pool.

Great state park! Electricity only hook ups, nice and shaded spots, and really nice and clean bathrooms and showers. Man made sand bottom swimming area is great also. Area has many things to see and do.
