Where to go: The park is small so come and take it all in! Walk along this tranquil portion of the Mississippi and take in the color. Then take a walk through the rest of the park and notice the change from mature pine to a more hardwood dominated area.
What you'll see: Maples are displaying some great color. Watch for some locally abundant waterfowl along the river.
Also of interest: Come in and enjoy the sunset over the river. Listen for the sounds of migratory waterfowl or come and observe the many birds that call Schoolcraft home!Last updated: September 25, 2014
Canít decide between a one-day or year-round park permit? The DNR has a special offer that can help. Start by purchasing a one-day permit for $5 and visit as many state parks as possible. After visiting the state parks, trade in the one-day permit by the end of that day and get $5 off the purchase of a year-round permit. Year-round permits, which cost $25, provide unlimited access to all 76 Minnesota state parks and recreation areas for a full year from the month of purchase.
