ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has a new online tool to help visitors select a state park that's the perfect fit.
ParkFinder can help people find the Minnesota state park that best suits their needs and interests.
Users can enter search criteria, view the results and make a reservation.
The interactive tool can help find nature programs, trails, rental equipment, and overnight camping and lodging.
ParkFinder already is up and running in time for National Get Outdoors Day, coming up on June 14.
