Where to go: Follow the park road to the picnic area at the end. Spend some time at the overlook of Lake Pepin.
What you'll see: A few oaks are holding on to their copper/bronze colored leaves, but by and large the leaves have fallen.
Also of interest: Pleasant Valley Lakelet has migratory waterfowl frequently, and if you take a hike you will have a good chance of spotting whitetail deer.Last updated: November 9, 2013
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.
