Forestville-Mystery Cave DNR

Camped here in 2007. Stayed in the "A" loop and the sites there were very nice. I enjoyed hiking here and looking around the historic town site. The trail to the big spring involved walking through water a few times. The trail to the Zumbro Hill Cemetery is quite the climb. Haven't visited Mystery Cave yet.
