Where to go: Hike to Pope's Point for a lovely sunset view of Lake Mille Lacs and watch the waves roll in.

What you'll see: You may catch a glimpse of the parks resident white deer. Easier to spot through the woods without the leaf cover on the trees. Chipmunks and squirrels very busy filling their caches.

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.
