Minnesota State Parks and Trails


Our vision is to create unforgettable park, trail, and water recreation experiences that inspire people to pass along the love for the outdoors to current and future generations.

In addition to natural resources restoration and management, the division administers grants-in-aid to local units of government who partner with local volunteer clubs to maintain snowmobile, off-highway vehicle, and cross-country ski trails. It is also responsible for Lake Superior Safe Harbors, and stewardship programs for the state's lakes, rivers and trails.
