Lots of trails for lots of uses Sep 27, 2008
Camden State Park in southwestern Minnesota is a scenic park on the Redwood River with lots of trails for day use. They have 15 miles of hiking trails, 4 miles of mountain biking trails, 10 miles of horse trails, and 5-7 miles of cross country ski and snowmobile trails. The park also has picnic areas and shelters, campgrounds, fishing in a lake and the river, a small beach, and boating in the lake (electric motors only).

The overlook trail follows a little creek and winds through the woods, but the overlook isn't much. All you see is the tops of lots of trees. The Dakota Valley Trail is the Hiking Club trail but it isn't very scenic in my opinion. It was pretty through the woods, but then you get up to the top of the hills to the rolling prairie (I'm not a huge fan of the prairie). The river trail was much nicer with the fall leaves along the Redwood River. This trail was also nice for jogging but the boardwalks get slippery when wet from the rain.
