Well, I'm at another campground. I arrived at Split Rock State Park around 1:00 pm today. This is the best maintained of the four Minnesota state parks that I've stayed. I have a nice campsite about 100 feet from a nice looking lake. My only complaint is that I had to use two layers of leveling blocks to get level. It is a small complaint because I think I could have moved around a little and found a level spot but was fine with the blocks.
I will be seeing the Pipestone National Monument tomorrow. My last day in Minnesota will be Tuesday when I head south to Iowa.
I drove around the area and walked around the campground this afternoon to get the following pictures.
