Cottage Grove Ravine Regional Park

Cottage Grove Ravine Fishing Pier

Overview 

Cottage Grove Ravine Regional Park consists of 515 acres of hills and dramatic, heavily wooded ravines with occasional clearings of prairie and old field. This varied topography and landscape creates an unusual variety of vegetation and habitats. Look for grouse, ermine, cottontail rabbits, deer and a number of bird species, including the pileated woodpecker. 

Vehicle permits are required for all vehicles entering the park.

Goats have left on 6/2/21

Over 60 moms with 100 "kids" were used in the park to browse garlic mustard and common buckthorn in over 60 acres were grazed. Thank you to everyone who kept an eye on them. Some of the goats are now at Lake Elmo Park Reserve.
