We are dedicated to the Preservation of the Historic and Natural Values of the Fort Snelling Area.
The Friends of Fort Snelling, a non-profit citizens organization, was established as the Fort Snelling State Park Association in 1961. The Association was the key organization in establishing Fort Snelling State Park and preserving Historic Fort Snelling.
We just updated our website and have added many new features, including photo galleries, an interactive map, and a timeline.
Fort Snelling State Park New Year's Eve Candlelight Walk
The Candlelight walk put on by Fort Snelling State Park along with the help of many volunteers and partners was another big success! Attended by approximately 3,500 people, the event took another leap forward. Nearly six miles of trails were lit around the Visitor Center, on Pike Island, and on a trail to and from the beach parking lots.
