Where to go: This is the last report of the season.

What you'll see: The majority of the leaves are now on the ground, which opens up the view from the picnic area, rock out cropping, and many of the camp sites down to the river.

Also of interest: Franz Jevne is open for camping through the fall. All sites are non-reservable. Please self-register near the park entrance for camping and vehicle permits.

Special Offer for Park Permits

Canít decide between a one-day or year-round park permit? The DNR has a special offer that can help. Start by purchasing a one-day permit for $5 and visit as many state parks as possible. After visiting the state parks, trade in the one-day permit by the end of that day and get $5 off the purchase of a year-round permit. Year-round permits, which cost $25, provide unlimited access to all 76 Minnesota state parks and recreation areas for a full year from the month of purchase.
