State parks with snowshoe rentals

Which snowshoes?

You can rent snowshoes at many parks and outdoor suppliers. There are a lot of snowshoe styles, so whether you rent or buy, ask for help in choosing the right size and style. The taller and heavier you are, the bigger the snowshoes you'll need. For deep, light snow, larger snowshoes work best. On hard-packed snow, smaller ones will do.

*At Wild River State Park, snowshoes are available for rental from a private concessionaire located at the park's Trail Center. Rental concession hours are Saturday 10 a.m.-5 p.m. and Sunday 11 a.m.-5 p.m. For rental rates or to reserve equipment, call Wild River Ski Rental at 651-257-0685.
