Lake Shetek State Park

Trail conditions:

We received 8-10 inches of fresh snow but the wind did blow it around a bit. The trail is freshly groomed as of today. We have perfect conditions for snowmobiling, skiing, and snowshoeing. There are quite a few ice fishermen on Lake Shetek but always use caution as some areas are not as safe as others and lots of snow on the ice can hide thin spots.

Snowmobiling
Trail conditions: very good
Trail groomed? yes
Trail base: 1-2"
Trail mileage: 5.0

The trail(s):
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. 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.
You can snowshoe anywhere in Minnesota's state parks and recreation areas, except on trails that are specifically groomed for another activity, such as skiing or snowmobiling.

Facilities:

  • 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.
