Discover Willow River State Park, WI

If you're searching for a relaxing natural getaway within half an hour of Minnesota's Twin Cities, Willow River State Park is a must-visit. Found five miles north of Hudson, this 2,891-acre park is the ideal spot for a quick and easy camping getaway.

Centered around Willow Falls and the beautiful waters of Little Falls Lake, this pretty park offers abundant recreational opportunities all year round. Fishing, boating, hiking, and cross-country skiing are all popular, and there are three great family campgrounds to choose from. So rent a camper near Willow River State Park, pack your bags, and give yourself a few days to explore the best the park has to offer.

Getting Outdoors

Willow River State Park campers enjoy a long list of recreational activities at this expansive natural area filled with lakes, rivers, forests, and prairie.

For many visitors, the best way to start your Willow River State Park RV camping adventure is to take to the water. Little Falls Dam, a reservoir on the Willow River, is found within the park and has long been popular with canoeists and kayakers. However, paddlers are advised to check the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources website for information on dam closures and water conditions. In the event the dam is closed, boaters can find other places to launch on the St. Croix River.

If you're a keen angler, you'll want to remember to bring your rod and gear with you for your visit. Fishing on the Willow River allows you to target a wide variety of warmwater species, including bass and panfish. The river is also stocked with trout, with the best fishing spots to be found upstream of Willow Falls.

Speaking of Willow Falls, this beautiful cascading waterfall is well worth a visit. Nestled in a 200-foot gorge, it's one of the park's main attractions and offers plenty of inspiration for amateur photographers. To get the best views of the falls, take the one-mile Willow Falls Trail from the campground. You might spot a deer or two along the way and, if you visit at the right time of year, you may even encounter some spectacular wildflowers.

There are 13 miles of hiking trails in total throughout the park, so it's worth taking the time to explore them all at your own pace. The Trout Brook Trail wanders for just under a mile and a half along the lower Willow River and offers beautiful natural scenery, while the Nelson Farm Trail, just under four miles long, is perfect for hikers seeking more of a physical challenge.

More than half of the sites in this campground are electric, while flush toilets and showers are centrally located. Other features include a kids' playground and vault toilets.

Exploring the Area

Just a few minutes to the southwest lies Hudson, where you can explore the 19th-century Octagon House Museum or enjoy a picnic in Lakefront Park. If you'd prefer to continue exploring the state parks system, William O'Brien State Park is just over half an hour north and offers excellent fishing and swimming.

Or if you'd rather head for the city, you can be in Saint Paul in around 25 minutes. While you're there, make sure you spend a day exploring the Como Park Zoo and Conservatory.

Good gas station with enough clearance for Honey right on the freeway.

Closest dump station to where you will pick up and drop off the RV. They charge a small feel I think $10-$15.
