Afton State Park

6959 Peller Avenue South

Grand oaks and delicate prairie flowers grace the rugged, rolling landscape of this park. Trails traverse remnant and restored prairies, wind down deep ravines and rise up to the grassy ridgetops and bluffs overlooking the scenic St. Croix River. The trails are perfect for hikers, horseback riders and cross-country skiers. The park offers visitors a swimming beach, backpack campsites and a visitor center with interpretive displays.

ITS SO LOVELY HERE. However if you're gonna go to the hike in campsites they don't do a good job of letting you know what you're getting into. It's a 25 minute hike UPHILL full of super steep inclines and things. Which is fine, we just didn't realize the new trail was so much longer. On top of that, they offer "self serve" fire wood that they charge you 6$ a day to access that is actually just literal massive tree logs and they give you nothing but a couple dull hand saws. What a joke! Other than these things, it's amazing though, great area and lovely camping!

Great park! Very accommodating for my friends wedding! We stayed in group camp- it was large with several sites big enough for campers and tents. Bathrooms were kept clean and well maintained. Our group camp was near the cabins so wedding party stayed there. Beautiful wedding!

Great hiking trails and scenery! Ive always loved Afton State Park, especially because we can bring the dog with too! My only complaint would be the bugs! They are super bad this year! There is also no playground for the kids! Other than that its perfect! Love the wild life, the peacefulness, the beach and the boat launch are great too!

Nice hiking and walking trails. Some people forget to clean up after themselves, like any public place. We have taken our dog for walks there too. Very family friendly. Please remember to take your trash and animal waste to the trash bins. Some of the trash are being updated or repaired. Enjoy the views.

My favorite park in the Twin Cities. I hike and snowshoe (depending on the season) here several times a month. The diversity of the trails allow for a different experience every time: dense woods, open prairie, streams, paved paths. Love it.
