Welcome to Autumn – Hours & Events

8/30/19 – As September approaches, it’s clear that the cool weather has joined it. We’ve definitely noticed a significant drop in temperature in the last couple of weeks! Even so, there have still been some beautiful and clear days. Be prepared if you’re taking a trip soon and bring layers along with a warm sleeping bag – and of course don’t forget your rain gear. With the weather changing, we’ll also be starting our fall hours this Tuesday, September 3rd. We’ll be open from 8 am – 7 pm daily.

In other news, labor day weekend has our campground completely full through today and tomorrow! There are options for campgrounds nearby though if you are worried about finding a site. Up here, it’s also known as fish n’pick weekend. A long time tradition, musicians come up to fish during the day and play tunes by a fire at night. All are welcome to join and listen to them during their jam tonight or tomorrow night in the canoe yard. Typically, they start around 8:30. Additionally, tomorrow marks the last US Forest Service naturalist program event of the summer! As always, they’ll be discussing Minnesota wildlife around a campfire with s’mores from 7:30-9. Plenty going on around here this weekend! Happy beginning of fall!


Sunsets are early these days, this one captured right after 8 pm on 8/28/19.
