Amazing Waterfall

Fun to play in the water, go behind the waterfall and a good hike up 200 steps to view the falls from above! Beware in winter the hike down to the falls is a grueling one when icy and covered in snow.

Great for hiking and camping!

Serene campground and gorgeous falls to hike to!

A fine camp east of Minneapolis

A good little campground for tents and trailers with trails nearby and some sweet waterfalls not far off.  Good for those who want to explore the twin cities without staying in town.

Memorial Day 2019

Memorial Day 2019 with my siblings and our dog. Campsite 202 had plenty of room for an 8 person tent and 2 pickups. The overall campgrounds were spread apart enough to not feel like you were on top of your neighbors. The park was very clean no garbage or debris on the trails. Overall highly recommend. Will be back again!

lovely in the fall

wooded, private sites, no trouble getting a site midweek in October, nice hiking along the water

Best getaway outside of the Twin Cities!

We enjoyed camping at the 300 loop at Willow River State Park. We had a relatively quiet camping experience with polite camping neighbors all around us! Restrooms are located on each side of the loop (one side has vault toilets and the other side has flush). In the center of the grounds, there is a shower building for campers to utilize. The sites in the 200 and 300 loop are heavily wooded with plenty of shade and have a very rustic feeling. The camping in loop 100 looks very open with no shade and no privacy.  I recommend reserving a campsite in loop 300 or 200.

The trails through the woods at the park are a lot fun and offer tons a great nature views. The main draw for the park, Willow Falls is a short 1 mile hike from the 300 loop campground. Heavily hiked trail with 3 different entrances, the falls can become crowded. Avoid this issue by doing the hike on a weekday.

Beautiful Waterfalls. Great for hiking and camping!

Willow River State Park no longer has a beach or a lake, but they are working on the dam to refill the lake once again. Willow River falls is definitely a beautiful site to see. Definitely a place to camp if you like to be active and explore the trails. Winter, summer or fall!

Relaxing, Zen, Activity

5 stars. 6 starts when they let go of the dam to refill their lake/beach.

Beautiful waterfall, zen experience, the state park puts on a lot of various activities through out every season. Visitors can also go behind the waterfall - tight squeeze, but worth it.

Cute and close to waterfall

This campsite was nice. A quick trip from Minneapolis will get you there in a half hour. There are a bunch of hiking trails around the campground.

Fall Evening

Spent the night at site 101. Clean bathroom. Great showers.
