Sibley State Park is a Minnesota state park near New London, on the shores of Lake Andrew. It is named for Henry Hastings Sibley, the first governor of the state. A city park in Mankato, Minnesota is also named for Sibley . The rustic style stone structures in the park were constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps between 1935 and 1938. These structures are now listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The layout of the park was a very functional example of master planning because it reduced congestion and overcrowding for swimmers, picnickers, and campers. It is rumored that a secret cache of memorabilia and other various items are buried underground in one of the park areas near the beach.Wikipedia

Sibley State Park, New London Reviews - Write a Review
I live in the cities and have more privacy in my back yard. Sites are on top of each other and practically wide open. Anyone that says this is a nice park clearly hasn't been to other state parks. Might be an ok place to stop for a day but honestly save the money and pitch a tent and build a fire at home. Would have saved me a two hour trip had I followed my own advice.
Great park and facilities but campgrounds are very open with no privacy. Missing the *info the woods" camping feel when at your campsite, but great if you like RV camping. The beach is nice with some great fishing. The hiking Andrew biking tails are the real reason to come. There are tails for easy waking and some great natural rugged tails to hike. Keep in mind that state park firewood is dried, so it is very ready to start, but burns very quick so you will go through more than you may think.
Nice State Park. Great hiking trails, good for biking. Family friendly, the beach and picnic areas are very nice. Camping spots are a bit tight, and can seem very crowded (we were there on Labor Day Weekend) but overall it is a beautiful older park. Bath and shower facilities were older but in good shape and clean.
Beautiful state park. Hiking trails, a lot of camp sites to chose from. Boat launch on Lake Andrew and several fishing piers make this a great spot for fishing. Not too far from the Twin Cities and a lot of local businesses within 10-20 minutes.
One of our favorite parks. We like to stay in the no electric sites. They are more secluded In the woods. Except when people run there generators.
