MidWinter Frolic

Whitewater State Park, Altura, MN

Registration is closed and we are in final preparations!

There will be about 80 attendees this year so expect it to be a little cozy.  

Recent storms have reminded us that travel in winter can be dangerous.   Please check your emails for a final “GO” or “NO GO” with any additional instructions by noon of Wednesday January 11th .  

All the same, we are in an isolated canyon so some VERY important safety rules for traveling.

1: Travel during daylight hours.  The access road is a plowed gravel road with no shoulders, very dangerous to navigate at night. Please arrive before 5pm Friday. 

2: Set GPS for this location

This is the group center camping.  This is where you will check in unless you still need to get your parking permit.  Please use the street view to see the entrance as it is easy to miss.

3: Parking permits. The state parks require these and will check. Please get these online or at the welcome center day of event between hours of 9am-3pm.  Online is much easier and you can get printable tag within an hour, go to: https://www.dnr.state.mn.us/state_parks/permit.html

See you at MidwinterFrolic 2023!
