Where to go: Take a hike around Loon Island or Smith Lake and enjoy the beginnings of the trees changing colors. Maples are turning and there are yellows, pale greens and burnished orange colors. Rent a kayak or a canoe for view of the shoreline. Take a bike ride through the prairie.
What you'll see: As you come into the Park, the sumac by the Monument is a beautiful deep burgundy color. Still a lot deer, some turkeys, a few pheasants and a variety of birds in the Park. Wood ducks are at Park Lake. Walleyes still biting.
Also of interest: Squirrels are busy gathering acorns and chipmunks are chirping in the trees.Last updated: September 23, 2014
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.
