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

Here in the Land of 10,000 Lakes, we have access to 67 state parks and many other state recreation areas, scientific and natural areas, state trails, and more.

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:
