Sibley State Park Turns 100!

Sibley State Park's 100th Anniversary.

 

On April 23rd, 1919, a dream came true. The remote wildlife preserve in the prairies of Minnesota officially became Sibley State Park.

Today, Sibley State Park hosts thriving restored and native prairie, scenic views from Mt. Tom and fishing, swimming and paddling in the fresh waters of glacially created lakes, including Lake Andrew.

Come together to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of Sibley becoming an official Minnesota State Park!

Join the 1+9 1919 Celebration Punch Card Club

During 2019 we are celebrating 100 years of Sibley State Park! Join us for a variety of programs year round from history hikes, full moon hikes to special centennial parties happening once a month in the summer. Pick up this card at the park, and bring it with you and receive a punch for each program you attend. Attend 1+9 (for a total of 10 programs) during the whole year and receive a special invite to a private centennial party that will include a special naturalist guided activity and local treats!
