Where to go: The Big Bog Beach on Upper Red Lake is the perfect place to enjoy the remaining hot days of summer. The shallow water and sandy beach are excellent for "cooling your heels" after a hike on the Big Bog Boardwalk!

What you'll see: The Great Blue Heron is frequently seen standing along the water's edge. The rushes and some of the leaves are just starting to show signs of fall.

Also of interest: A variety of birds have been seen in the park during this past week, including warblers, waxwings and sparrows.

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.
