Nighttime events

Campfire at a Minnesota state park

Sure, you could just go to sleep at night, but when you're out in a Minnesota state park there's so much more to do after dark!

Lots of parks schedule special events after dusk, so you can learn about moths, bats, owls and other nocturnal critters, take a moonlight walk or paddle, or just relax with music and storytelling around a campfire.

Find a program below, or if you're looking for a stargazing program with telescopes, check out a Universe in the Parks program.
