This is the only park in the County’s park system that may be reserved for a party. It boasts a large open area with plenty of shade for family reunions and weddings, a small shelter, a newly constructed larger pavilion and electricity that can be accessed by request if the park and/or pavilion is reserved. Old Wadena Park Campground reservations can be made by contacting the Wadena County Parks Department by calling 218-631-7604. A reservation form is also on the Parks main webpage.
There are numerous trails for walking to enjoy and a foot bridge that crosses over the Leaf River to access the little round hill site.
Another interesting draw to the park is the Old Wadena Society’s Bogwalk. Constructed of donated docking sections and secured by metal pilings driven deep into the mire, this offers an interesting and educational opportunity to enjoy the natural beauty of the wetland while walking through it. The Old Wadena Society’s Rendezvous is hosted at Old Wadena Park the 2nd weekend in August annually.
From here it is 1.5 miles downstream to the next available landing.
