Interstate Park Current conditions

Trails

Pothole, Summit Rock, Echo Canyon and River Bluff trails all provide some amazing views of the St. Croix River Valley. If you are looking for something different, try the Silverbrook Trail. This trail will lead you to an old copper mine and a small waterfall. All trails should be in good condition, but you may find a muddy patch with the recent rains.

Beach

The flush bathrooms in the beach area are currently closed due to an issue with the lift station.  Vault toilets are available across from the playground and the beach is open for use.

Events

Interstate State Park events and nature programs are listed on the DNR Get Outdoors! Calendar.

  • Nature Story Time: Every Thursday at 10 a.m. at the Ice Age Center.
  • Weekend Programs: A variety of different programs are put on throughout the park.

Nature

Geese can be seen swimming in the Lake O’ the Dallas. Osprey and turkey vultures can be seen soaring high above the river valley. Two hen turkeys and their clutch of poults can be seen hanging out near the Ice Age Center shelter every morning. Please remember to “Keep Wildlife Wild” and enjoy viewing wildlife from a distance and to leave young animals alone.
