2020 Leaf Days Celebration
and 2020 Photo Contest

Park Remains Open for Fall Colors

See Events page for more info.


Friends of Maplewood wants you to know that Maplewood State Park is open for fall leaf viewing, but the Friends group is not able to have their regular Leaf Day Celebration. So go out and enjoy Maplewood by hiking and exploring. Take a road trip around Maplewood to enjoy the fall colors. The Friends group will begin offering things to do by the spring maple syrup season, we hope. This year's photo contest was also cancelled as we received no entries. We'll evaluate that to see if we'll try again in 2021. Stay safe and enjoy the outdoors at Maplewood.


Maplewood State Park remains open allowing people to be outdoors, engaging in activities such as walking, running, and fishing and hunting. Minnesotans can continue to enjoy parks and other public recreation lands.  For more information, see the MN DNR Response to COVID-19 (click here).
