Where to go: For a wonderful prairie hike head out on any of the horse trails. For a mix of scenery head out on the trail to the highest elevation in the park.

What you'll see: Horse trails: You will see the vast open prairie, and hike over the rolling hills. Highest elevation trail: You will start out by hiking thru the campgrounds that sit atop an Esker. From there you will head to the highest point the trail will be open prairie for awhile then transition and you will be on the edge of the prairie and woods, then the farthest loop section of the trail will take you thru the woods.

Also of interest: Camping is open of the season thru MEA weekend. Four electric camper cabins are open year round.

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.
