The greater River Falls area offers ample opportunity for day-tripping, camping, motorists, cyclists, river buffs and sports people of every persuasion. Click here for biking routes in St. Croix County.

Whatever the season, visitors need only stray a few miles from the city limits to find the best Wisconsin has to offer in scenic beauty, geologic quirks, novel picnic spots or seasonal entertainment.  River Falls has 18 park and recreation areas scattered throughout the city.  The largest being Hoffman Park, followed by Glen Park.

Glen Park (in River Falls)
Glen Park is one of many parks in River Falls.  Glen Park has much to offer including a municipal pool, public basketball courts, horseshoe pits, swinging bridge over the Kinnickinnic River, and many more activities and scenic areas to walk, sit, or play around. 

Hoffman Park (in River Falls)
An interesting mix of people can be found camping, in either tent or RV, at Hoffman Park on the city’s east side. The sixteen overnight camping sites might be occupied by University students still looking for a permanent place to live, visitors from out of town, or city residents relaxing and brushing up on their camping skills. This park is also home to our frisbee golf course. Play on this 9-hole course year-round.  The park is open from April 15th to October 15th and offers access to electric hook-ups, bathrooms, and showers. People with camper-trailers, motor homes, and tents pay $15 a night on a first come first served basis. For information call (715) 425-0924 or click here for more information.
