Where to go: The park is small so come and take it all in! Walk along this tranquil portion of the Mississippi and take in the color. Then take a walk through the rest of the park and notice the change from mature pine to a more hardwood dominated area.

What you'll see: Maples are displaying some great color. Watch for some locally abundant waterfowl along the river.

Also of interest: Come in and enjoy the sunset over the river. Listen for the sounds of migratory waterfowl or come and observe the many birds that call Schoolcraft home!

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.
