Trail Snow Report
Lake Shetek State Park
We got another 7-8 inches of snow on Saturday night but it is wet and heavy. There have been some snowmobilers in the park but because it is wet, the snow might not be the best. The snowshoe trails have plenty of snow although the wet snow will stick to snowshoes. Sounds like we might be in for a major warm up by next weekend so get out and enjoy while you can. There is still plenty of time to get out and enjoy the winter woods or a night in the camper cabins, which are heated and open year round. Snowshoes are available for rent when the office is open.
|Trail groomed? no|
|Trail base: 3-5"|
|Groomed mileage: 5.0|
The trail terrain consists of flat to gently rolling hills. The snowmobile trail runs through a mixture of open and wooded areas. Two flagged snowshoe trails separate from the snowmobile trails, one is 3/4 mile and the other is approx. 2 1/4 miles, have been marked. Both trails start in the picnic area parking lot. Snowshoeing can also be done anywhere in the park except on groomed snowmobile trails. Although we don't groom for cross country skiing, skiers can break their own trails anywhere in the park except on groomed snowmobile trails. Numerous deer and other wildlife can be seen in the park.
- The stone picnic shelter with a wood stove serving as the warming house is located in the picnic grounds.
- Snowshoe rentals available in the park. Ski rentals available from a private vender near the park.
- The park has 4 camper cabins available for rent, Thursday through Sunday during the winter months and daily from April through October. All four cabins feature heat and electricity to keep you comfortable during your winter adventure. Reservations can be made at www.mndnr.gov/reservations or by calling 1-866-857-2757.
