Where to go: Climb the fire tower for an excellent view of the changing colors. You will see a variety of landscapes from one vantage point. It's worth the trip!

What you'll see: The final report for 2013: The tamaracks along the boardwalk and along Hwy 72 across the Big Bog are still turning beautiful shades of orange. They are typically the last color of the season. Enjoy!

Also of interest: Many species of birds are passing through the area on their way south for the winter.

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.
