Our visit to Crow Wing State Park in Brainerd MN We stayed at Camp site #26 which was non-electric but did have River Front Views. Crow Wing State Park is across the Mississippi River from Camp Ripley, so you may hear heavy artillery training during the night. It is kind of cool!
Crow Wing State Park also features the Old Crow Wing Town Site and the Beaulieu House (built in 1849), at the junction of the Crow Wing and Mississippi Rivers. Easy and beautiful hiking trails. Fire wood and ice for sale at the ranger station even after hours.
It is a quick trip in to Brainerd, and the Brainerd Lakes Area Welcome Center is right outside the park, however the gift shop is strangely closed on the weekend. I highly recommend this park for a weekend stay – we had a lot of fun exploring!
