  • I haven't been to White Water S. P. in a couple of years and it is still one of my favorite state parks in the state of Minnesota! There are so many beautiful trails and absolutely as few mosquitoes as I have seen in any state park. There are a ton of activities for kids including some buildings and a lot of Ranger demonstrations around the holidays. There are a few amazing vista's and areas where kids can play in the water or throw rocks in the river. There is a great beach for kids to play at and did I mention a significant lack of mosquitoes?
  • Excellent cabin camping experience here in mid August! Whitewater definitely had the newest and cleanest State Park cabins we’ve ever stayed in. The trails were beautiful/well maintained, swimming beach was fun for the kids(water is definitely chilly), park employees were friendly, and the kids came home without any bug bites! We will definitely be back!
