We've visited this park 2 or 3 times before, but this time we did the hiking club trail and were wowed. We new that the Kettle River ran through the park and had seen it from above before but we didn't know about the history of the park or how impressive the Kettle River is from it's banks. It was... 更多
This is one of my favorite state parks with some great hiking trails and the river is beautiful. Great place to get away from the Twin Cities without driving hours.
This was our first time to Banning State Park, we spent 2 nights in the campground with our pop up camper. The campground is clean, bathrooms were decent and clean.

I love Northern Minnesota. Banning state park in a great place to camp! It's an interesting site. Well worth the travel time.
This is a great park to stop and stretch your legs and see some nature on the way to Duluth and beyond. It is about a half mile east of 35W, so it is a quick and easy diversion. My first recommendation is if you don't have a annual state park permit you should get one. From then on you... 更多
Wow!!! This is now one of our favorite state parks and we plan to visit every year. The staff are amazing and they really take wonderful care of the park.
