Minnesota nightlife

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 have special events scheduled after dusk. 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.
