Join us for an urban wilderness experience that will surprise and delight you and your family. Your adventure is based at Picnic Island in Fort Snelling State Park. Here you and your family will set up camp, hike around Picnic Island, and learn about the amazing history of Fort Snelling – it is truly the birthplace of modern Minnesota. At Picnic Island, you’ll enjoy bird songs, a view of the river, good food, and the crackling of a campfire as you relax. This is a fantastic way for you and your family to explore the environment right out your back door.
