Where to go: This is the final report for the season. Most of the leaves have been blown off the trees and the Park had its first snow 10/29/2013. The deer are moving into the park for winter protection and as you drive the highway from Ortonville you see many turkeys and deer crossing the road. Happy Fall season and get outside!

Special Offer for Park Permits

Canít decide between a one-day or year-round park permit? The DNR has a special offer that can help. Start by purchasing a one-day permit for $5 and visit as many state parks as possible. After visiting the state parks, trade in the one-day permit by the end of that day and get $5 off the purchase of a year-round permit. Year-round permits, which cost $25, provide unlimited access to all 76 Minnesota state parks and recreation areas for a full year from the month of purchase.
