Most Minnesotans Have Never Heard Of Split Rock Creek State Park, A Perfectly Peaceful Park In Southwestern Minnesota

That’s why most Minnesotans haven’t heard of the state park we would like to feature today. But Split Rock Creek State Park, in the state’s southwestern corner, is a perfectly peaceful oasis that makes for a wonderful weekend excursion. Here’s what you can expect when you visit this quiet little prairie park:
