HI Well

Sibley County's High Island Creek Park is basically in the natural state.  Only the picnic area has been developed.  The name is derived from the creek that meanders through the park for approximately 3,000 feet.  The High Island Creek eventually enters the Minnesota River several miles downstream, north of the community of Henderson.  Because of the creek valley, the parks topography varies from gently rolling to steep slopes and in some areas sheer cliffs.  Most of the park presents heavily wooded virgin acreage with the trees being typical of the varieties found in Minnesota's hardwood forests.

 Access to the park is from the north.  It may be reached by traveling east on CSAH 12 from it's junction with State Highway 5 (1/2 mile north of Arlington) for approximately 6 miles (watch for park signs).  Also by traveling north from Henderson on CSAH 6 to CSAH 12 (approximately 2.5 miles north of Henderson) and then west on CSAH 12 for approximately 3 miles (watch for park signs).

HI Shelter



Paper camping permits are not required by Sibley County.  However, you MUST call the Sibley County Sheriff's Office at 507-237-4330 to obtain permission for overnight camping.
