This park is wonderful! Many hiking trails, easy to follow trail maps, swimming areas, and camping areas. Great place to spend a weekend year round! Groomed cross country ski trails in the winter. All season destination.

Coming from an area that doesn't have too much of a problem with ticks we stupidly didn't think about getting bug spray before we decided to wander around the park. Don't get me wrong - this is a wonderfully beautiful park with some of the...More

Beautiful and lots of water fun, small swim beach and canoes to rent. We can't wait to go back to see fall colors and try camping there.

One of my favorite state parks. So many trails and a great swimming area. Only six miles away from downtown Pelican Rapids and 12 miles from The Inn at Dunvilla.

Canoe and Kayak rentals. Plenty of small lakes to fish on. The water is so clear and the sunsets and sunrise from the Campground are gorgeous. I'd say this is in out top 3 favorite state parks. Plus we can always bring our pet pooch....More

There is the same park entrance fee as with all Minnesota State Parks. I buy the $25 annual fee, but you can buy daily fee. Then of course camping is extra.

I haven't biked myself, but certainly you can bike on the roads. I have seen other campers biking. I don't thing the off road trails can be biked on though.
