This park is centrally located in the heart of Sauk Centre. It includes a great playground, picnic shelter, gazebo, band shell, indoor bathrooms, boat access, restored fountain, green spaces and a fishing dock. It is great for all ages and all seasons.

Sinclair Lewis Park is charming. The campground at one end and the park/ bandshell nearest to Main Street. We spent the afternoon walking the fairly long t-shaped dock which juts out onto the lake, sitting by the pool/ fountain with the childs statue, and watching the wildlife....a peaceful stop.

There is a fishing pier on the lake, which was in use while I was there by multiple people. Large paved lot. Bandshell... More

Sauk Centre is a small town with the Sinclair Lewis park for all to enjoy. There is a fishing dock and a band shell with free concerts on Wednesday evenings.

Beautiful small town park. The playground is fairly new and the sheltered picnic area and bathrooms are well maintained. There's a camp ground close by with boat ramp, a band shell, and a nice little railed dock for fishing. We enjoy the park.

Sinclair Lewis Park sucks. It smells like hell. All of the pictures that you see are just on the one nice day in the year. I've stood on the pier on Sauk Lake, in Sinclair Lewis Park, and you could see dead bass floating in the water. It is nasty.
