Glacial Lakes State Park is located at a crossroads or transition zone between the original prairie land to the west and the central hardwood forests to the east. Only about 1/10 of 1 percent of the original Minnesota prairie remains. The park preserves a portion of rare native prairie including a wide variety of grasses and forbs such as the big and little bluestem grass, Indian grass, prairie clover, pasque flowers, coneflowers, and goldenrods. Enjoy the clear and clean 56-acre Signalness Lake that has its entire watershed inside the park. Glacial Lakes State Park offers numerous campsites, hiking trails, canoe, kayak, and paddleboard rentals.
In the winter you can enjoy cross country skiing and snowshoeing on the park’s ungroomed trails. Check the park’s website for special events held throughout the year.
