This charming 57-acre park provides a quiet get-a-way in the midst of the West St. Paul, Minnesota area. The park features a large picnic area that overlooks Thompson Lake and miles of wooded trails that connect to the North Urban Regional Trail—a trail system that links Thompson County Park to Kaposia Park in South St. Paul and to the Mississippi River Regional Trail.
Thompson County Park is also the home of the Dakota Lodge—a four-season event center that is perfect for weddings, reunions, meetings, banquets, retreats, parties and much more.
Lake aeration on Thompson Lake
Dakota County Parks will operate an aeration system on Thompson Lake. The aeration systems may result in thin and unsafe ice conditions on each lake. Aeration systems are recommended by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources to help keep fish alive by increasing oxygen levels in lakes.
