If you crave fresh air, meeting travelers from around the world, and kicking your feet up by the fire after a long day of hiking, then come check out the HI Mississippi Headwaters hostel. Located inside Itasca State Park, our hostel offers all this and so much more. With dorm beds and privates to meet the needs of all types of travelers, and a cozy common room and kitchen for hanging out and making meals, we’ve got everything you need to feel right at home in our wilderness retreat.
The surrounding park has 30 miles of hiking and cross-country ski trails and 17 miles of paved bike trails. If you prefer water sports, bike and boat rentals and a beach are right across the road. Our friendly hostel staff can help you map out your adventures and you never know when they’ll be making fresh goat cheese in the kitchen. While you may feel like you’re miles away from civilization, don’t worry, we still have Wi-Fi to help you stay connected. We look forward to welcoming you at HI Mississippi Headwaters.
Make the most of your Mid-Western adventure and head to Wisconsin’s state capitol, Madison, next where’ll find a surprisingly lively music scene and good beer.
