Crow Wing State Park

Nestled at the confluence of the Crow Wing and Mississippi Rivers, Crow Wing State Park is a wealth of natural beauty and historical significance. At Crow Wing State Park, you’ll enjoy picnicking in the frontier town site of Old Crow Wing that emerged to serve the needs of early travelers and traders.  Here, the Clement Beaulieu House stands as an iconic remnant of Minnesota’s Territorial Period.

During your stay today, walk the oxcart trail that once brought supplies from St. Paul to Red River settlements, bike the fully-paved Paul Bunyan State Trail into Brainerd or Baxter, and view abundant wildlife that inhabits the river’s edges. Full access to the Mississippi River makes for easy fishing and paddling for both novice and experienced canoeists to enjoy.

Located in the beautiful Brainerd Lakes Area and conveniently just off of Highway 371, this park offers electric and non-electric campsites, a group camp that accommodates up to 75 people, a camper cabin, showers, flush toilets, a seasonal dump station, and boat and canoe rental. Whether you’re looking for an afternoon walk, or weekend getaway, Crow Wing State Park makes getting outdoors easy and has something to offer you in every season.
