Where to go: Hike the trails for some good views. Have a picnic in one of our new lakeside picnic sites which are also ADA accessible. Or stay overnight in the campground among the trees and the lake. Any place in the park is a good place to go during fall. Most of the maple trees are starting to turn red, orange, and yellow. Many birch trees are beginning to turn yellow. Blooming wildflowers can still be seen in a few areas.
What you'll see: Split Rock Lighthouse State Park has a lot of birch trees and some small stands of maples. There are lots of trees with fall color around the park.

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.
