Lake Bemidji State Park

Trail conditions:

Ski trails are being groomed today, Jan. 21, except for part of the Fish Hawk Trail and the far northwest corner of the Old Logging Trail. Starting this year, the trails to the Bogwalk, Rocky Point Overlook and Sundew Pond are now multi-use for skiing, snowshoeing, and winter hiking! Those who are not skiing should stay off to the side and not damage the tracked section of these trails. The snowmobile trail was groomed 1-15-2020. Ice thickness on Lake Bemidji is variable and unknown in many locations so riders should exhibit extreme caution when on the lake and take alternate routes whenever possible.
