Charles A. Lindbergh State Park is a 569-acre (2.3 km²) Minnesota state park on the outskirts of Little Falls. The park was once the farm of Congressman Charles August Lindbergh and his son Charles Lindbergh, the famous aviator. Their restored 1906 house and two other farm buildings are within the park boundaries. The house, a National Historic Landmark, and an adjacent museum are operated by the Minnesota Historical Society, known as the Charles Lindbergh House and Museum. Three buildings and three structures built by the Works Progress Administration in the 1930s were named to the National Register of Historic Places. These buildings include a picnic shelter and a water tower, built in the Rustic Style from local stone and logs, and have remained relatively unchanged since construction. Although the property includes shoreline on the Mississippi River, the Lindbergh family requested that the park not include intensive use areas for swimming or camping, so development was kept to a minimum.

  • Nice little park. The group campsite is located in a very nice area and is close to a trail. The rest of the campsites also seemed very nice. The trails are well maintained with maps at every checkpoint. I loved canoeing along the creek. The modern showers and toilets are ok, but the primitive one by our campsite wasn’t tended to for over 2 days, which was getting unacceptable. Overall, it was a great camping experience enjoying the park to the fullest.
  • We hiked the hiking club trail in early August. It was a great day, sunny with a high in the low eighties. The trail is very well-marked and well-maintained. The scenery is varied and lovely, including hardwood and pine forest, prairie meadows, and creek views. Insect repellent is a necessity - we had bugs around us for the entire hike, but 25% DEET did a good job of keeping them from biting. Therefore, I feel like the best time of year to hike here would be after the first freeze, or perhaps in the spring before they get too bad.
