6/7/2010 Itasca State Park, Park Rapids, MN Site 66

The headwaters of the Mississippi River are located in Itasca State Park. The park also has biking and hiking trails, boat rentals, a wildlife drive, a museum, and two campgrounds. Our site was in the Bear Paw campground. We had a back-in site with electric only near a water spigot. Be sure to fill your freshwater tank at the dump station before setting up. We had a view of Lake Itasca from our site. This is a very popular campground so be sure to make reservations. This is a great state park with a lot to keep everyone busy having fun.

UPDATE ON ITASCA STATE PARK: We stayed here again in June, 2011 in the Pine Ridge Campground. The site was a long back in with lots of room on either side of the site. The bath houses were very clean. We would recommend either of the campgrounds. We enjoyed them both.

Amenities: Electric only at site, lake, hiking, biking, museum, boat rentals

Would we stay here again? YES
