Minneopa July

Minneopa State Park
Mankato Minnesota

Minneopa is a Dakota word that roughly translates as "water falling twice"
I first found this place on a drive across Minnesota when I couldn't resist following a small sign that said "Falls" with an arrow along the roadside. I now try to stop here whenever I can for a picnic and short walk around this powerful fall. (it is on my route home to visit my parents in South Dakota).

These falls are in a small state park a short drive south of Minneapolis / St. Paul near the town of Mankato.

The area of the park around the falls is consists of mostly a ranger station and small picnic area ... apparently there is much more to the park just down the road (a project for a future visit).

.. directions and more info. from the Minnesota State parks at this site ...

and the friends of Minneopa site
