Koochiching County. Just east of Birchdale on Highway 11.
Highway map index: H-4.
Perched along the Canadian border, little Franz Jevne State Park offers a picture-window view of Ontario across the Rainy River. Fishing and canoeing attract most visitors to the park, and you can hike for a mile along the river.
Franz Jevne has 10 rustic campsites, interspersed among the trees that cloak the riverbank.
