Where to go: Fall color is starting to pop...With larger Maples now starting to turn, small Maples quite pretty. The campground road has nice color, as does the Beaver Pond Trail. Loon Lake Trail just some hints of color. We will see what the rest of the week brings!
What you'll see: Smaller Maples are completely red and orange. Larger Maples now turning. Aspen and Oak all pretty green yet but we are starting to see some light green and yellow. The underbrush has some yellow, as well as brown.
Also of interest: Wild Sunflower, Aster, still pretty at Wolf Lake and along roadsides. We also just installed our new fishing pier at Lake Shumway! Come and check it out!Last updated: September 18, 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.
