Prairie lovers, this park is for you. Trails wind through one of Minnesota's finest and largest remnant prairies. Listen for bobolinks, prairie chickens, marbled godwits and upland sandpipers. A picnic area, swimming area and campground are located in the hardwood forest along the Buffalo River. The park is only 14 miles from the large metropolitan area of Fargo, North Dakota - Moorhead, Minnesota.
Tell me more about this park's wildlife, history, geology and landscape.
The Swimming Pond is closed due to pipe repairs. We anticipate the swimming area to be open on Monday, June 3rd. Pelase check back for updates as this date may change due to unforseen construction issues.
