Voyageurs National Park

There may not be a park in the state of Minnesota that produces such breathtaking views and experiences. At Voyageurs National Park in northeast Minnesota, all bets are off and the only limits are your imagination. The park offers hiking, biking, camping and fishing. In the summer, Voyageurs is a perfect place to hit the water, too.

Itasca State Park

The closest in proximity to Fargo-Moorhead, Itasca State Park is perfect for
a day-long getaway or a short excursion. Thankfully, the park offers just about anything you could imagine from trail walking to mountain biking paths.

Blue Mounds State Park

Drive just south on Interstate 29 and you will run into Blue Mounds State Park just across the border between South Dakota and Minnesota. Make sure to check out the amazing hiking trails and get a view of the eye-popping rock formations along the way.
