  • If a person doesn't want to venture much farther north, you don't want to miss this park. It's got plenty of trails for all levels of hikers and even during a dry year, the Kettle river is fun to...  more »
  • Looks nice until you are eaten alive by mosquitoes and nats. There is not enough bug spray you can put on to stop them. Insane big too.!!!!! Don't say you were not warned, nice park otherwise.  more »
  • One of my favorite State Parks in Minnesota and only about an hour out of town. No other park gives me a feeling of being on the north shore like Banning does. Excellent hiking trails with awesome names and it’s never been crowded in my experience. Make sure to check out the beautiful Wolf Creek Falls or as I like to call it, Halloween Falls!
  • Banning State Park is a nature reserve that has camping, canoeing, hiking and skiing. The park has a historic Sandstone Quarry. There are churning rapids inside the park. If you like the water, bring water shoes so you can experience the pools and the beautiful water falls. Great place to bring your family.
