Charles A. Lindbergh State Park

Charles A. Lindbergh State Park is named after Charles August Lindbergh Sr., but most people will likely only know his son by the same name. Charles Lindbergh, Jr., the first man to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean, spent his boyhood summers at the family farm. It is now part of the historic site, which includes the 576 acre state park, the Lindbergh home and the Lindbergh Museum on the Mississippi River Lindbergh State Park is located on the Great River Road Scenic Byway just south of Little Falls in Minnesota’s Morrison County.
