The park is only 14 miles from the large metropolitan area of Fargo, North Dakota - Moorhead, Minnesota.
Explore one of Minnesota's largest remnant prairies on skis or foot. In addition to 250 species of grasses and wildflowers, the park has an abundance of colorful birds and butterflies. Cool off on hot days in the popular sand-bottom swimming pond.

Great campground with excellent hosts and horrible mosquitos especially on the wooded side. The prairie side is pretty with good views of the passing trains. The man made lake is excellent swimming but it is only open Memorial to Labor Day. Great hiking and geocaching. Bathrooms are OK - clean but small and old. But clean.
