Minnesota State Parks Offer Winter Getaways

DNRST. PAUL¬† (AP) — Minnesota state parks are offering lots of chances for winter getaways.

The Department of Natural Resources says many camper cabins are still available at several parks for the weekend of Feb. 12-13, as well as for Valentine’s Day, Monday, Feb. 14. It says they’re quiet places to escape the buzz of the city and constant call of TV and video games.

The camper cabins are heated and many have electricity. They’re fairly rustic, with a table, benches and wooden bunk-bed frames with mattresses, but no indoor plumbing. They cost $45 or $50 a night.

A more luxurious option is offered at Itasca State Park. Its Itasca Suites are priced at an off-peak rate of $99 per night through May 22. Cross-country skiing, ice fishing, snowmobiling, and snowshoeing are right outside.
