Sibley State Park
There is something for everyone at this popular west-central Minnesota State Park.Â Hike to Mount Tom, one of several high points in a 50-mile radius, and see a patchwork of forest, farmland, prairie knolls, and lakes. Summer visitors enjoy swimming, boating, and fishing on Lake Andrew. A canoe route invites adventurers to portage and canoe on Henschien Lake and Swan Lake. The park offers campgrounds, a modern group center, horseback camps, picnic area, and interpretive programs year-around.
I live in the cities and have more privacy in my back yard. Sites are on top of each other and practically wide open. Anyone that says this is a nice park clearly hasn't been to other state parks. Might be an ok place to stop for a day but honestly save the money and pitch a tent and build a fire at home. Would have saved me a two hour trip had I followed my own advice.
Great park and facilities but campgrounds are very open with no privacy. Missing the *info the woods" camping feel when at your campsite, but great if you like RV camping. The beach is nice with some great fishing. The hiking Andrew biking tails are the real reason to come. There are tails for easy waking and some great natural rugged tails to hike. Keep in mind that state park firewood is dried, so it is very ready to start, but burns very quick so you will go through more than you may think.
Always a great place to go during summer for swimming, camping, picnics, hiking, fishing off the dock, canoeing, etc.. and in the winter for cross-country skiing and I believe snowmobiling. Good place to watch those Minnesota sunsets as well while getting away from the busyness of city life.
Nice State Park. Great hiking trails, good for biking. Family friendly, the beach and picnic areas are very nice. Camping spots are a bit tight, and can seem very crowded (we were there on Labor Day Weekend) but overall it is a beautiful older park. Bath and shower facilities were older but in good shape and clean.
Beautiful state park. Hiking trails, a lot of camp sites to chose from. Boat launch on Lake Andrew and several fishing piers make this a great spot for fishing. Not too far from the Twin Cities and a lot of local businesses within 10-20 minutes.
