Tour Historic Fort Ridgely and wander through the ruins of this once thriving outpost. Learn about the U. S.-Dakota Conflict of 1862, a major event in Minnesota's early history. Stop by the cemetery to learn more about the history. For recreation, this park offers plenty: play a nine hole course; hike or ride the trails on horseback; play volleyball or softball; fish; and camp (drive-in and walk-in sites are available). Come winter, ski, snowmobile or slide down the big hill.

Camped here a few years ago. Nice little park with some nice campsites and awesom hiking trails!

Very nice park. Nice hiking trails and overlooks.

There is a golf course in this state park. It is a very low priced course, but very nice and slightly challenging.

Maybe I shouldn't share this, but since it was late in the season and their course was technically closed, we were encouraged to golf for free! The weather was great; too bad my game wasn't...

Lots of history in this park too regarding the military fort that once was used here and the battles that happened as well.
