A Plethora of Parks

We’re not just a river city, we’re a river city twice over, plus a lake or two! In addition to our phenomenal Willow River State Park waterfall, Homestead Parklands offers numerous rentable activities to enjoy on Perch Lake. Stay tuned for updates on our newest addition, Eckert Blufflands, where you will be able to camp, hike, fish, and explore the St. Croix Riverbanks!

Bring some food for a picnic, shoes for a hike, and even some little ones because some of the parks have a full playground as well. Hudson is home to 11 parks that could easily fill a day trip agenda or a family summer park challenge.
