Where to go: Take a hike on any of the trails, beautiful this time of year. Campgrounds are pretty with lots of leaves to crunch through. A walk around Smith Lake is very pretty. Lake Shetek is still serene with the shorelines offering beautiful views.
What you'll see: Lots of deer, chipmunks, squirrels and some turkeys and pheasants. Still some leaves on the oak and maple trees, but most of the leaves have dropped. Kayaks, canoes and boats are still available for rental.
Also of interest: Park is closed to visitors Friday October 24 through Sunday October 26 for a Youth Deer Hunt.Last updated: October 21, 2014
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.
