Interstate Park Current conditions

Conditions as of Thursday, May 25, 2017:

Trails

Recent rains and rising water levels on the St. Croix River have left some of our trails muddy and water-covered in some places. Expect Meadow Valley, Lake O’ the Dalles, and Silverbrook trails to be most impacted by water. Pothole, Summit, Echo Canyon, and River Bluff trails should be in good condition.

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.
  • Memorial Day Weekend: There are several programs over the weekend including Rope Making and Knot Tying, Pet-A-Pelt, and Etched in Stone.

Nature

Geese and their goslings can be seen down in the River Picnic Area. A few fawns have been seen in the park as well. Please remember to “Keep Wildlife Wild” and enjoy viewing wildlife from a distance and to leave young animals alone.

River and lake

The St. Croix River and the Lake O’ the Dalles are both high at this time with the recent rains. The beach area is not open at this time due to the high water.
