These 11 State Parks In Minnesota Will Knock Your Socks Off

In the winter in Minnesota it’s easy to curl up inside, turn the heater on, and stay as far away from the rugged, snowy wilderness as possible for 4 or 5 months. But, you might find if you venture out of your living room, that some of Minnesota’s prettiest views, and all of Minnesota’s amazing state parks, are that much more fun to explore when you’re snowshoeing, snowmobiling, and cross-country skiing. Here are some of the MN state parks that will continuously knock your socks off all winter long.
