Itasca State Park
Established in 1891, Itasca is Minnesota's oldest state park. Itasca features more than 32,000 acres of wilderness and includes more than 100 lakes. You can walk across the mighty Mississippi as it starts its winding journey 2,552 miles to the Gulf of Mexico. Gaze up at the towering pines at Preacher's Grove and visit the Itasca Indian Cemetery. Explore the wilderness of Minnesota as it was intended. Just 40 minutes west of Hiawatha Beach!
