Given our state’s famously cold winters, it may be hard to imagine spending much time outside in the winter. But the truth is, Minnesota is full of activity during the cold and snowy months. From hockey games to ice fishing to skiing and snowboarding, there are plenty of activities to fill our time. So it should be too surprising that there are some places in Minnesota where you can even go camping year-round. There’s a riverside state park in Minnesota where, believe it or not, you can camp in any month of the year. Sound good? Read on below to learn more.

For more information about Afton State Park, including maps, availability, and booking a stay, visit the park’s page on the Minnesota DNR website. And if you’re looking for other great state parks to stay at in the winter, check out our past list of other state parks where you can camp year-round.
