FAMILY HISTORY - My mother was born and raised in this area until she was about 6 years old or so. Her family name was Hendershot, a name that is well known up there. I remember many stories she would tell my brother Tommy and I about life in Northern Minnesota.
The best - I have stayed at Kathio for many years and find the park and the staff to be exceptional. I go at the not busy times and find it very quiet and peaceful. The stars at night are amazing.The staff go out of there way to make your stay great.
Not for horse lovers!! - Limited trails that are not kept up for starters, the horse camp was not taken care of at all not worth the money or long trip to get there. Then there was the part that there were people camping in the horse camp without horses but had no problem letting their kids run around spooking the horses!
Memories of Picnics at Camden State Park - We had many family gatherings at Camden State Park in earlier years when we would drive past the Park Ranger Home(which I saw today) and we could drive over the old bridge to the only picnic areas of that time.

Been going there all my life. - The name of this State Park has been changed to Great River Bluffs State Park. It covers a range of terrains from prairie and meadow to Pine forest and Hardwood forest. Stunning views overlooking the Mississippi River as well as wooded valleys. Most trails are easy to moderate. Only a couple of slightly challenging trails. Beautiful place.
