Crow Wing lies at the confluence of the Mississippi and Crow Wing Rivers, giving it a rich biodiversity and cultural history. The park covers over 2,000 acres of river shoreline, prairie, forests, and wetlands.
People have been gathering here for ages. The National Register of Historic Places has established two historic districts dating back to ancient Native American life and early settlement. Today visitors can walk the self-guided, interpretive boardwalk along the river and imagine walking back in time to the fur-trade time when a small village thrived here.
