Where to go: Hike up to Eagle Rock behind the interpretive center and see if you can locate the bison herd of one hundred plus animals. They like to stay in the back of their fenced in enclosurer of 534 acres.

What you'll see: When you see the bison herd you will see abut 28 bison calves. The breeding season is all but over so the heard has settled down and are not moving around as much. Though the two breeding bulls are still in the herd.

Also of interest: As the days get shorter it is good to hike up to the top of the mound and see the beautiful sunsets that are enhanced by the smoke particles in the atmosphere.

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.
