State Park · Nature / Park
Sibley State Park is a Minnesota state park near New London, on the shores of Lake Andrew. It is named for Henry Hastings Sibley, the first governor of the state. A city park in Mankato, Minnesota is also named for Sibley.
The rustic style stone structures in the park were constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps between 1935 and 1938. These structures are now listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The layout of the park was a very functional example of master planning because it reduced congestion and overcrowding for swimmers, picnickers, and campers. It is rumored that a secret cache of memorabilia and other various items are buried underground in one of the park areas near the beach.

  • Was not the park. But wow the three huge bucks roaming around the edge of the park we're beautiful. Great place to go to meld yourself with nature. I have been to this state park many if time and have enjoyed it over the years
  • Very nice clean park. We have called here several times and are always happy we did. There are a lot of families with kids camping here, but the type of kids that play nice and are respectful. My kids always make lots of friends here each time.
