Fort Ridgely State Park
Minnesota's 4th oldest State Park. The Park offers a historic site, camping, rental farm house, hiking, horse riding trails, bike trail to Fairfax, X-Country Skiing, snowmobile trails, and sliding hills. Tour Historic Fort Ridgely and wander through the ruins of this once thriving outpost. Learn about the U.S.-Dakota War of 1862, a major event in Minnesota's early history. Visit the museum and the cemetery to learn more. For recreation, this park offers plenty. In the summer, hike or ride the trails on horseback, fish the stocked pond or trout stream, camp (drive-in and walk-in sites are available), or stay overnight in the renovated farmhouse. In the winter, ski, snowmobile, or stay overnight at the chalet.
