Glacial Lakes State Park
Stand on top of the scenic glacial hills and experience the vast, open prairie which once dominated Minnesota. Wildflowers and prairie grasses blanket the landscape from spring through fall.
Swim, fish or boat (electric motors only) in the fresh, clear waters of 56-acre Signalness Lake. Canoe rental is available. A shady, spacious campground is available; horseback riders and backpack campers can camp at the trail center and at remote sites. A picnic area deck overlooks Signalness Lake.
