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. Rent one just for the day, or stay overnight. The group center at Whitewater State Park is open year-round; all others are seasonal.
Contact the park directly to reserve. Group centers are not in the state park reservations system.
