Group centers

modern group center


Eight Minnesota state parks have group centers designed to hold large day use or overnight gatherings. All group centers have dining areas, kitchens and bathrooms, and some have staff quarters, craft buildings and other facilities. The group center at Whitewater State Park is open year-round; all others are seasonal. The seasonal group centers at Itasca and Myre-Big Island state parks are semi-modern and offer fewer sleeping quarters. All other locations are modern.

Contact the park directly to reserve. Group centers are not in the state park reservations system.
