Plenty to do in this state park; Itasca is closest in size and scope to a national park, and with it comes a lot of people being car tourists. It's easy enough to escape them on one of the many hiking trail away from the headwaters area so if crowds aren't your thing, just know that it's what you make of it. The narrow roads are often shared with people on bikes, so drive carefully, especially on the wilderness loop that is one-way heading North and West from the Headwaters.

This Park is amazing. It's beautiful and going to see the Headwaters of the Mississippi River is a must-do if you are anywhere within a couple hours drive of the park. This Park is perfect for both a full or half day trip for non-outdoorsy people, and it is perfect for a days to weeks long vacation for the outdoorsy people. The staff is always friendly and helpful despite the volume of Summer visitors. It is a yearly must-go-to for our family and we look forward to the park every time.

The swim area is great, boat yours are a lot of fun. You can rent a bike if you didn't bring one.

See the headwaters of the Mississippi River. That is the big draw of this state park, but it isn't the only thing going for it. This is a great park to go and enjoy nature, see the forest and hike on some trails.

Both the visitors center are worth stopping in. They have a fun and informative area about local animals and the history of the area. The headwaters center has a nice cafe for lunch as well.

What a great area to be out in nature! Growing up in the Pacific Northwest, it was a real treat to be able to experience this park. See the mix of tree and plant species was very exciting, it's amazing the difference between the Midwest and the West Coast.

Unfortunately the park was really packed when we were there, but that happens sometimes. The trails were well kept, and there were some amazing views! I'll definitely be going through the park again, the next time I'm in the area. Hopefully be able to find a place to camp ad well! Would recommend this to anyone that has a couple hours to walk around!

Super nice state park! The visitors centers a clean and the employees are very helpful! Headwaters are a popular spot. Don't forget to stop at the fire tower and see the views.
