Reviews - What do customers think about County Parks of Minnesota: 300 Parks You Can Visit Featuring 25 Favorites (Trails Books Guide)?
Excellent resource for off-the-beaten-path Minnesota Nov 28, 2006
I bought this book as a resource for camping in Minnesota. Minnesota is blest with many functional, scenic, and fun state parks; therefore, this makes it extremely difficult to get camping reservations. County parks on the other hand are semi forgotten gems. Many have facilities rivaling the state park system. Obviously county parks lack the funding to advertise. This book will provide you with quality reviews on many wonderful, less traveled destinations. Have fun!
