Whitewater State Park Turns 100!

Family in a field.

 

In 1919, citizens from southeast Minnesota succeeded in lobbying the legislature to establish Whitewater State Park. Today, the rugged landscape of Whitewater State Park is a mecca for trout fishing, bird watching, hiking and camping in the geologically diverse Driftless area (untouched by the last glaciers). Join us throughout 2019 to celebrate the history of this special place!

To commemorate this milestone, a photo booklet titled, "The Paradise of Minnesota – 100 Years of Whitewater State Park," was assembled to introduce visitors to the park's rich history.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Park visitors will also have the opportunity to celebrate the Centennial Anniversary by participating in a variety of special events scheduled throughout the year.
