Banning State Park

Robinson Park

Sandstone, Minnesota, located just a few

miles from Banning RV Park and

Campground, is home to a bit of Minnesota

mining history.  Visit Robinson Park and enjoy the beautiful Kettle River with rock walls meant for scaling. As you walk the park trails, make sure to read up on the history of Sandstone mining along the Kettle River.  The Robinson Park area was once a large mining area and the traces can be seen throughout the Park.

River Rafting,

Canoeing, and


The Kettle River is Minnesota's
first Wild and Scenic River. A beautiful

river to take out your raft, canoe, or kayak.  Local rapids make the day adventurous, while the calmness brings tranquility to the soul.


Local Nightlife

Just 13 miles south is Hinckley, Minnesota.  Hinckley is home to many restaurants, including Tobies (famous for their rolls)  and Grand Cinema and Grand Cinema Pizza.  Grand Cinema Pizza makes handmade fresh to order pizzas, the best in the area.  Great for a date or a night with the family. 

One mile east of Grand Cinema is Grand Casino Hinckley.  The casino is a great place for adults to relax and enjoy food, gaming, and live music.  They even have daycare, an arcade, coffee & gift shops, hair salon, and spa.  A great way to spend the evening before coming back to gaze upon the country sky.
