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!
