Charles A. Lindbergh State Park is a 569-acre (2.3 km2) Minnesota state park on the outskirts of Little Falls. The park was once the farm of Congressman Charles August Lindbergh and his son Charles Lindbergh, the famous aviator. Their restored 1906 house and two other farm buildings are within the park boundaries. The house, a National Historic Landmark, and an adjacent museum are operated by the Minnesota Historical Society, known as the Charles Lindbergh House and Museum. Three buildings and three structures built by the Works Progress Administration in the 1930s were named to the National Register of Historic Places. These buildings include a picnic shelter and a water tower, built in the Rustic Style from local stone and logs, and have remained relatively unchanged since construction. Although the property includes shoreline on the Mississippi River, the Lindbergh family requested that the park not include intensive use areas for swimming or camping, so development was kept to a minimum.

  • We stayed in one of the two cart-in sites. We arrived before 8, but the office was closed. It was a challenge to find where we should go. We drove through the circles that had the non-cart in spots...

  • A little muddy but great people in the campground. Apparently they got 8 inches of rain the week I showed up. Most of the hiking trails had impassible mud but it's a beautiful park. I would recommend and I will be back.
  • I have to drive to St Cloud every Sunday and get cramped up after hours of driving. Last week we decided to stop here for an afternoon walk to stretch. I love it! Charles A. Lindberg State Park has a little bit of everything camping, trails, historic buildings to visit, a museum, saw some kayaks and a canoe that looked rentable (a couple campsites right next to the creek for such activities), attentive park staff, a playground for the little ones, picnic area. Make sure you stop to check it out. I'll definitely be stopping again. A word of warning. It's muddy and wet. Some of the trails were closed off due to the recent rain but we've had an incredible amount this spring. Next time I'll probably bring mud boots and extra socks. Just in case.
