Itasca State Park: Mississippi Headwaters
We took our annual camping trip to Itasca State Park in northern Minnesota. Itasca State Park is the home of the Mississippi Headwaters. The river flows 2,552 miles down to the Gulf of Mexico in Louisiana. Lake Itasca is said to be the source of the Mighty Mississippi River. It is an achievement for all who visit to be able to say “I have crossed the headwaters of the Mississippi River”. We hope you enjoy watching our family cross the headwaters!
