Camden State Park
The narrow, steep Redwood River Valley is blanketed with dense woods, blessed with free-flowing spring water and provided refuge for Native Americans, settlers and travelers. The powerful prairie winds still blast across the open land and barrel up the river valley and in present-day Camden State Park, visitors come to explore and learn about the history of this place. Camden State Park is located three miles southwest of Lynd in Minnesota’s Lyon County.
People visit Camden State Park to go hiking, mountain biking and horseback riding. Hikers like to explore about 16 miles of trails ranging from relatively flat walks in the restored open prairie to more challenging and rugged paths in the river valley. The park has about 5 miles of trails available for mountain biking and 10 miles of horse trails and most trails are shared use with each group. There’s also 1.7 miles of self-guided trails at Camden, including a prairie interpretive trail. A paved one-mile trail connects to the 9-mile paved Camden Regional Trail into nearby Marshall.
The park is open to hiking and snowshoeing and skiing, but no groomed trails are available.
