Tucked away in the scenic hills of southeastern Minnesota, this is an excellent park for viewing spring wildflowers. A blue-ribbon trout stream is a major visitor attraction. Sit quietly in the campground by the stream or hike the 8 mi of trails and explore the many overlooks. The park is only 1 mile from the Barn Quilt tour route.
Beaver Creek Valley State Park is known for its clear streams fed by the "Big Spring." Its streams are home to brown and native brook trout. In spring, wildflowers that blanket the woodland hills and valleys attract migratory songbirds like the rare Acadian flycatcher, Cerulean warbler, and Louisiana waterthrush. These birds nest in the park. A hiking trail meanders along the stream and up into a maple-basswood and oak forest. Campers are lulled to sleep by the murmuring stream.


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