Where to go: Lake Shetek is beautiful now--very serene and quiet. Rent a canoe or kayak to experience the view of the lake shore. Leaves are just starting to turn, but not the Oak trees yet. Grasses are at peak and flowers are past peak. All of the trails afford a beautiful hike. Bike trail is still a pretty ride.

What you'll see: Lots of deer, turkeys, and a variety of birds. Hummingbirds are still in the Park. Wood ducks are starting to gather at Park Lake. Fall fishing: walleyes are starting to come into the rocks. Sumac by the Monument is starting to turn a deep burgundy.

Also of interest: Lots of squirrels and chipmunks in the park gathering acorns.

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.
