According to TwinCities.com, Interstate State Park ranks in the top 10 most popular state parks in Minnesota.
The St. Croix River cuts through large cliffs at Interstate State Park in Taylors Falls. Visitors can kayak through rapids, see unique glacial potholes or climb basalt rock made from lava flows more than a billion years ago. Canoes can be rented for the river’s calmer waters, and people can camp at the park’s 37 sites.
Set up a day visit or overnight to hike the famous cliffs on the St. Croix river, camp in the beautiful park, rent a canoe to paddle down the St. Croix River.
The Falls Chamber of Commerce advocates, promotes and supports business members and our communities.
Our communities share not only a Chamber of Commerce and a strong sense of community, but the beautiful St. Croix River, a National Park in our front yards. The area offers many opportunities for those visiting or choosing to call this unique place home. With the charm of two small cities we are proud of our dedication to the arts, tourism, small and large businesses and our high quality of life, including superior education, health care, recreation and technology.
