Summer Activities Guide

Family frolicking in a field.

Minnesota state parks and trails have outdoor adventures to keep you and your family active and engaged all season long. There are peaceful parks, parks with waterfalls or exceptional stargazing, parks with unusual things to see like underground mines, parks with fantastic wildlife viewing or swimming beaches with lifeguards, and parks with fewer bugs than others. Places to bike, swim, paddle, fish, rock climb, scuba dive, and geocache. Adventure is easy and the sky's the limit—so get out there and have some fun!
