Get Directions


Afton State Park's rugged, rolling landscape provides excellent hiking, horseback riding and skiing opportunities, plus a swimming beach and spectacular scenic overlooks of the St. Croix River. The Prairie Walk interpretive trail, oak savannas and wooded river valley offer an interesting contrast of wildlife habitats and exceptional birdwatching. The visitor center is a good place to get oriented to the park's trails and special features.

The campground is located on the bluffs overlooking the St. Croix River, and is a strenuous 3/4-mile hike from the parking lot. The park also has camper cabins, yurts, and group campsites.


Park permits: $35 annual, $26 second vehicle, $12 handicapped, or $7 daily. Camping fees are separate.
