This is a nature lover's delight. Explore prairie, pine, and hardwood forests. View the Mississippi River from historic and picturesque "Chippewa Lookout." Novice canoeists can paddle the calm waters of the Crow Wing and Mississippi Rivers. Crow Wing is a park rich in cultural history. In this area, a frontier town emerged to serve the needs of travelers and traders. The town died when the railroad chose to cross the river at Brainerd. Walk through the site of the Old Crow Wing Village for a sense of history. The park still has a section of the famous Woods Trail, which served ox cart traffic ...

4 Star Rating   March 31st, 2017   Nice trails
We visited the park in October of 2016. The trails are wide and easy to navigate for all ability levels. Lots of historical markers and information to be found along the trails with views of the river.

3 Star Rating   July 28th, 2012   Not Bad
I was excited to find there were trails and remnants of a town in the woods from days gone by. Bring your imagination though because most of it was just signs mentioning what was probably there a long time ago. They do have a board walk and 1 old house for you to look at. Camp Ripley is near by and we knew it. There was constant gun fire all day and night until 11pm. At times we felt like we were camping near a war zone. hehe Some nice hiking trails along the river were nice, and they had a musician in the amphitheater which was fun.

This is a nice quiet park. We have stayed here several times while visiting family in Brainerd. Lots of hiking trails along the rivers. Some of the sites especially in the middle of the loops are cramped with no privacy. We liked sites 40-46 best because they are the most private.
