This is November? 72 and sunny and there are still plenty of leaves on the trees down here. Great geocaching opportunity here and so convenient that this park is so close to town for last minute amenities. Great trails here and wildlife galore. Very nice shelters for taking a break. Nice interactive features here and there.

This Great State park has it all. It is a wonderful place to see the beauty of a river valley and has a host of trails as well as a summer beach. The camping is prefect all year round, although winters are cold cold cold in Minnesota.

It's amazing to have this beautiful park adjoining our city! I took a hike on one of the many trails that wind through the woods and along the river. It's so peaceful out there! And in summer the lake-like pool is a great place to cool off or watch grandkids build sand castles.

Seems small for a state park, very near the residential area of town. It's rather like a city park. Campground area seems okay from a drive through and the pool is convenient to it, if rather small. Nice shaded benches around it, however.

Terrible beds, either broken or worn out, terrible! If you don't get a decent night sleep you can't enjoy playing like you should be able to. If it wasn't for the beds it would have been a higher rating. Still trying to recover. Of course, they said, no one else has ever complained, They just didn't get this way over... More

I grew up in New Ulm in the 80's & 90's, and have many fond memories of Flandrau. I thought it would be fun to take my family to swim and barbeque for the 4th and show them one of my favorite childhood places. What a disappointment, seriously. Everything is SO overgrown! The grass is 2 ft high in areas... More

Stayed in the first camper cabin- electricity and heat! Close to outhouse and bathrooms with water and shower. Able to walk to the manmade pool - 5ft deep with lifeguards that take a short break every hour. There were concessions at the lake if ice cream - frozen treats and other snacks. The staff was very helpful and we met... More

My family goes to Flandrau State Park to enjoy nature. Our main interest is in the woodland ecosystem - especially spring wildflowers. We have noticed a tremendous decline in the quality of our experience. The DNR hasn't controlled garlic mustard which is one of the worse invasive species in North America. It has gotten to the point where it is... More
