This was #43 MN state park hike. BE AWARE #67 road is partially CLOSED and has been since 2019!!!!!!!! Good grief. What a great hike. Did the Hiking club hike and the wetland hike. It is very hilly getting up to top but what a view. Paths were very well groomed and wide. Lots of history and they had nice plaques with information. The wetland hike was a different story. Trees down, skinny paths not marked very good but still fun to hike. Not sure if it is taken care of at all. I know we came at a quiet time of the year but this park hopefully gets some lovin' in the summer. We loved the diversity of the park.

Great hiking club trail. Awesome views of both the Minnesota River Valley and Yellow Medicine River Valley. Length of three miles. Do watch out for horse droppings as there is an equestrian camp in park. Note sign states 'no horses on hiking trail.' Number of droppings was limited to one area of trail and easy to avoid. Hiking trail has an excellent path to walk from the lower river area to the upper river bluff. The trails elevation loss and gain make for good exercise.

beautiful sites, well maintained, trails mowed, But the best part was the DNR officer she was informative and it was very apparent that she loves her job and the park. I believe her name was Emily and she was amazing

We had a horrible trip here because of mosquitos. We stayed in a tipi and it also smelled. I'm sure if we had come during a different month without mosquitos or if we had an RV it would be better but we had a horrible trip personally and about 30 bites in one night.

The scenery is beautiful and the history is invaluable, but the trails are a little underkept. Realizing we were visiting a few weeks after Labor Day, so I'm sure there are fewer guests and that maybe changes the staffing, but some of the trails were incredibly muddy, rutted from vehicles, blocked by fallen trees, and washed out from rain. I'm conflicted between wanting our parks to be as natural as possible, but still be visitor friendly. In the end, I think the trails could be more visitor friendly.
The park is definitely still worth the visit, just be prepared for muddy shoes or plan extra time if you are hiking with kids.
We only saw the tipis from a distance, but they were still just beautiful.

We came to do the State Park Hiking Club trail. This one is 4.2 to 4.5 miles depending on who you believe. There had recently been rains and there were some very muddy/marshy areas. There are some steep hills with muddy areas on the hills not just at the bottom. So in some areas we were trying to walk up or down a steep hill on the edge of the trail to not sink into the mud and avoid getting caught in the sticker bushes. But it was still a lovely hike, just a little more of a challenge than we thought it would be. This is a hike worth doing!

We stayed for two nights in the Yellow Medicine campground with our camp trailer. The campground itself is a mix of open and wooded sites, but all are very well cared for and clean. The campground was very quiet and peaceful. The hiking trails are a real stand-out. You can hike heavy woodlands, along wetlands, open prairie, and a number of challenging hillsides, with views of both the Minnesota and Yellow Medicine rivers. The park rangers were very helpful and stopped by to greet us and see if we needed anything. A very enjoyable park!

We stayed in the Yellow Medicine campground in our motorhome. The sites are spacious with some shaded, some not. It's a very peaceful park, very quiet (other than other campers and their dogs). Wood was available from camp host or the rangers or at the office. Rangers drive around a lot. Very nice bathrooms; modern and clean! Even a shelf to put your shower accessories. We did some hiking which was some in the woods, through the prairie and along the river. Lots of historical markers in park and just down the road. We saw deer, rabbits, tree frogs and birds and wildflowers while we were there. Only negative is there is no service in the campground but you can reach it near the office (if that's important to you, for some it's not - we like to post pics on FB) and there is no dump station at the park but there is one available in Granite Falls. Also worth the trip to check out Granite Falls which is a cute town. Go have a picnic by the river, see the dam and pelicans and walk across the suspension footbridge. Also a casino nearby.

Situated on the Western Prairies of Minnesota the Upper Sioux Agency S.P. Is a peaceful park. When you are there you can imagine what prairie life might have been for the Ingalls family in the early 1900's or the Dakota War of 1862. Staying in one of the three Tipi's is a must. The sunsets are memorable. Without the diffusion of city lights the stars dance across the evening sky. Also fireflies in the evening were like Christmas tree lights across the prairie. This park's highlights are scenic beauty, hiking, horseback riding and history.
There is a lot of self guided history of the 1862 Dakota War. As well as a few historical sites.
One of the evening we headed into Granite Falls for the Western Stampede Rodeo. The Rodeo was a lot of fun for the entire family.

This is were the fighting began in the Dakota-US War of 1862. Buildings nearby are well restored. Great history and the nearby casino has good food.
