One of my favorite places is great for birding/photography. Lily and I love to go hiking there year around . The troutfishing can be fabulous. Have a horse? Bring it along. Cross country skiers have a ball. Like to explore a beautiful but "mysterious" cave? Come on in. A little history might be your interest? A 1898 store can be checked out. Yes, there are reenactors there as well. It's all in Forestville State Park near Spring Valley, Minnesota.
The Park also has four modern campgrounds including the States largest horse camp with over a hundred sites And a young DNR Ranger who leads some great birding hikes. The following series of short videos takes a look a Mystery Cave and some of the many activities available to visitors and campers Forestville State Park . It's a great place to visit.....:)
