Welcome to Friends of 



The Friends

Minneopa State Park has a long history of volunteering going back to its beginning when a group of men formed a park advisory board to oversee the site. More recently, the Friends of Minneopa came together in 1998 out of concern about the park’s future. They have played a valuable role in helping put on special events, serving as Bison Ambassadors and involved with natural resource work to keep the park running smooth.
