Information on:

Afton State Park

6959 Peller Avenue South

Grand oaks and delicate prairie flowers grace the rugged, rolling landscape of this park. Trails traverse remnant and restored prairies, wind down deep ravines and rise up to the grassy ridgetops and bluffs overlooking the scenic St. Croix River. The trails are perfect for hikers, horseback riders and cross-country skiers. The park offers visitors a swimming beach, backpack campsites and a visitor center with interpretive displays.

Great hiking trails and scenery! Ive always loved Afton State Park, especially because we can bring the dog with too! My only complaint would be the bugs! They are super bad this year! There is also no playground for the kids! Other than that its perfect! Love the wild life, the peacefulness, the beach and the boat launch are great too!

Nice hiking and walking trails. Some people forget to clean up after themselves, like any public place. We have taken our dog for walks there too. Very family friendly. Please remember to take your trash and animal waste to the trash bins. Some of the trash are being updated or repaired. Enjoy the views.

Went here for a field trip on my last day of school. Couldn’t ask for more! Beautiful place with scenic areas and wildlife. Just had time to goof around and enjoy time together with my friends!

Love this park! I have hiked every trail multiple times. Nice swim beach. Great place to camp. They have yurts and camper cabins too.

Great park with lots of options for hiking and camping. Prairie, forest, the St Croix River, and some respectable hills. Nice picnic area, and a variety of primitive, but well maintained, cabins and yurts for overnights. A nice escape for the day from Minneapolis or St Paul.
