In New Ulm, follow Broadway (State Highway 15) to 10th Street South. Proceed west on 10th Street South up the hill to Summit Avenue. Then turn left heading south and proceed three blocks to the park entrance which will be on the right (west) side of Summit Avenue. Park entrance is right next to the New Ulm Country Club.
For all visitors, the semi-modern campsite rate is reduced to a rustic rate during the off season when showers and flush toilet facilities are not available. Half-priced camping is available Sunday-Thursday for Minnesota residents with disabilities.
The park offers good road access to all camp sites. There are also several hiking trails that connect to all of the park facilities once you're there.
The park features a well-kept sand-bottom swimming pool replete with zero-depth access, on-duty life guard and a refreshments stand.
The park entrance is right in the city limits of New Ulm. There are several local shops and restaurants as well as nearby grocery stores.
