Franz Jevne State Park is a state park of Minnesota, USA. It is located on the Rainy River (which demarks the Canada – United States border) between International Falls and Baudette in Koochiching County. The land for the 118-acre (0.48 km2) park was donated to the state by the Franz Jevne family; the park was created in 1967 by the Minnesota Legislature Camping reservations may be made up to one year in advance of your first night's stay. Whether it is the night before, or the year before, we will have a spot waiting for you. Now you can search by date to find the perfect time for your overnight stay. Beaver, wolf, and moose have been sighted in this park. Bird life is rich along the Rainy River! Songbirds and woodpeckers fill the forest with sound. And keep your eyes out for pelicans on the water and bald eagles roosting in the trees along the riverbanks. In 1961, a National Park Service survey recommended that land along the Rainy River between International Falls and Baudette be set aside as a park. Some of the land was privately owned by the family of Franz Jevne, a lawyer in International Falls and later, in Minneapolis. Late in 1966, the sons of Franz Jevne offered to donate the acreage to the state for use as a park on the condition that it be named after their father. Although the 118-acre area is a small tract of land by comparison with other state parks, this park is among the most scenic areas along the Rainy River. In 1967, the Minnesota Legislature approved a bill to create Franz Jevne State Park.
