  • Reservation requests can be made anytime online or over the phone Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays 10am - 6pm, and Sundays 12pm - 5pm.
  • It is preferred that customers submit an online reservation request form that can be found here. Our staff will contact you to confirm your reservation and take payment over the phone as soon as we process your request.  We will process reservation requests in the order they are received.

Please recreate safely by following Minnesota Department of Health’s guidelines and being informed of the guidelines for the spaces and activities you are recreating in. Be prepared and self sufficient as many of the facilities and buildings in parks are not open at this time.
