We stayed here in a tent for one night. Site #20 is the best tent campsite, right on the river, grassy, large and relatively quiet. We walked right down to the river (Split Creek) and went tubing. Swimming or wading by the campsite was impossible, way too many huge rocks in the slightly murky water to trip you up. Our... 更多
This is a nice day trip for hiking and picnicking. The camping is great too! I wouldn't go swimming in Splitrock Creek as there are many cattle grazing upstream.
The park is relatively small, but peaceful, relaxing and with delightful sites around each corner. There were several trails that were relatively short and mostly easy to do. The cost of a day pass was only $4. There were lots of places to have a picnic. I didn't drive through the campground, but there was one. I did take lots... 更多

A hidden gem in the middle of fields. With our climbing guide book, we were able to climb the starts of several routes. We also hiked a bit. We watched other people swim and picnic. The bathrooms were also not too bad at all. Totally worth the drive. We'll be back for more climbing soon.
We were traveling to Pipestone and saw a sign to Palisades State Park. Since we had some spare time we decided to take a visit. After seeing nothing but rolling farm land, we were very surprised at this park. The admission fee of $6.00 was very reasonable. It seems so quiet and secluded and the granite cliffs and stream are... 更多
Only 9 miles from I 90, exit 406, so you don't have to stay in the 2 parks next to the highway with no trees. There is lots of nature and trees in Palisades Park. The park is big and you will never feel crowded. It offers little cabins to rent that over look the river, there are decks attached... 更多
