  1. Rob says:

    Do you have sites for a40 foot trailor?

    • Hi Rob,
      Yes, there are a few campsites that can accommodate trailers up to 40 feet at Frontenac State Park. We advised calling the ranger station directly on which sites will work for your trailer: 651-345-3401

  2. Frontenac State Park says:

    This is a great website telling about Frontenac State Park, but since we are a bluff side State Park there is no place to go swimming or have water sports. We do have canoeing and other non motorized boating in the small Pleasant Valley Lakelet though that joins the State Park land.

    • Thanks for your kind words and additional info on Frontenac State Park. We will make sure that the ‘swimming, canoeing and water sports’ do not pertain to the Park, but to nearby Lake Pepin.

  3. Veronica Kowalewski says:

    Beautiful park, lots of variety in scenery esp in the fall. Got a good hike in on the bluff side and a more mellow one through the grassy areas. Beautiful any season but particularly when there is color to see.
