ABOUT THE PARK

The Mississippi and Minnesota rivers have been shaping this area for thousands of years. After the last glaciers retreated, Glacial Lake Agassiz drained its massive basin in western Minnesota. Its meltwater carved the expansive Minnesota River Valley on its way to meet the Mississippi River. Fort Snelling State Park, established in 1961, contains the confluence of these two great rivers. Despite the threat of annual floods, the confluence has been, and continues to be, an important meeting point for a variety of communities. Nestled in the shadow of city freeways and airport airways, the park offers you unique opportunities to explore the outdoors through trails, picnic sites, a beach, fishing opportunities and more.
