This charming 57-acre park provides a quiet get-a-way in the midst of the West St. Paul. The park features a large picnic area that overlooks Thompson Lake and miles of wooded trails that connect to the River to River Greenway — a trail system that links Thompson County Park to Kaposia Park in South St. Paul and to the Mississippi River Greenway.
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.
