Itasca State Park OvernightBack to events

See the colors of Fall at Minnesota's oldest state park!

Saturday, October 6 through Sunday, October 7

There is now a waiting list.

Itasca State Park is also one of the largest in Minnesota. From the DNR website: "Today, the park totals more than 32,000 acres and includes more than 100 lakes. Walk across the mighty Mississippi as it starts its winding journey 2,552 miles to the Gulf of Mexico. Stand under towering pines at Preacher's Grove. Visit the Itasca Indian Cemetery or Wegmann's Cabin, landmarks of centuries gone by. Camp under the stars, or stay the night at the historic Douglas Lodge or cabins. Explore Wilderness Drive past the 2,000-acre Wilderness Sanctuary, one of Minnesota's seven National Natural Landmarks."
