Description
Visit Forestville/Mystery Cave State Park to see natural wonders above and below ground. In the summer, beat the heat with a visit below ground. Explore the world of Mystery Cave with its stalactites, stalagmites, and underground pools. Park naturalists provide tours of the cave throughout the summer and on weekends in the spring and fall. The temperature stays at a constant 48 degrees Fahrenheit. Above ground, stop by Historic Forestville, a restored 1800s village operated by the Minnesota Historical Society (MHS). Fish three blue-ribbon trout streams for brown trout. Take in the soft pastels of wildflowers in spring or listen to ruffed grouse drumming and wild turkeys gobbling. Hike or bring your horse to ride the ridge tops and stream valleys. Observe interesting geologic features along the way including sinkholes and dramatic Big Spring. In the fall, don't miss the bold colors of the forest. Winter invites visitors to ski or snowmobile the Bluff Country. Journey underground, upstream, and back in time to fully experience everything this blufflands park has to offer. Spring-fed streams provide outstanding trout fishing. Enjoy accessible cave and living history tours for a fee.

Great park with things to do such as the Caves and historic Forestville. However, I think Forestville may be closing due to state budget cuts. The caves were pretty impressive. Both tours were well worth the money. Mosquitoes were pretty much non-existant and I was told is due to the cold river water which is not suitable for their eggs. They had some nice bird talks and hikes. Only complaint was that they don't have any kind of playground for the kids. Lots of raccoons.

Lots of things to do. Our niece and nephew (age 5 and 8) loved the cave. The cave is a few miles from the campground, they were about to repave that road this fall. Forestville still opens on Fridays and Saturdays but seemed spendy so we didn't go. You can still see the historic buildings from the outside on other days. We enjoyed some good hiking paths.

Great park with lots of activities. Take one of the many tours of the cave. It's really interesting. And the remains of Forestville is a nice glimpse into history. One of the best things is that the state park has NO MOSQUITOS thanks to a colony of bats in Forestville and swift moving water of the river.

We had so much fun at this state park! The campsites are wonderful--most are very private and decently sized. The bathroom facilities are some of the best we've seen in the state. Plenty of fishing and hiking to be done and the cave is AMAZING! I highly recommend the tour! When we went, the gnats were BRUTAL, but it was a bad, record year for those statewide, so it wasn't normal for the park to see. It was terrible though and we did cut our trip short, but we are already planning on coming back next year!
