Want to help make Chester Woods Regional Park even better?

Chester Woods Regional Park is located in Olmsted County in SE Minnesota.  This 1300+ acre park provides amenities for public use including hiking, camping, small craft non-motorized boating on our reservoir, swimming, equestrian trails, cross country ski trails, and snowshoeing.  Friends of Chester Woods is the non-profit 501c(3) advocacy group that collaborates closely with the Chester Woods Staff and Olmsted County Parks to enhance the user experience along with the natural habitat in the park. 

Donations to FOCW (Friends of Chester Woods) stay right here at the park to be used only for projects that benefit you, your family, and friends. All other income generated by the park with entrance fees, camping fees and watercraft rentals are included in the Olmsted County general revenue.  If you would like to support Chester Woods County Park by becoming a member of FOCW (Friends of Chester Woods), or with a special donation, you contribution will be used by FOCW for special park projects and programming.
