About the Event

Come enjoy an evening in the park by candlelight. Hit the trails, snowshoeing or hike, where you will be guided by the moon and candle luminaries. Then come warm up by the wood stove or enjoy snacks and refreshments in the Lakeview warming shelter.

The snowshoe & hike trail starts at the beach.  The warming shelter in Lakeview Group Camp makes for a convenient stopping point.  Enjoy a steaming cup of cider and cookies near a crackling fire before heading back on the trails.

Snowshoes can be rented at the park the night of the event. This will be a first come first serve rental.

There is no cost for this event, but a Minnesota state parks vehicle permit is required to enter the park ($5/day or $25/year).

If you are interested in volunteering with set-up, lighting or take-down of candles please call the park as well (320)852-7200

***IMPORTANT*** This event may be canceled or changed at the last minute, due to poor weather or wind conditions on the day of the event. This event will take place regardless of snow conditions. If there is a lack of snow, this event will be a hike event instead of a ski and snowshoe event. Please check the Lake Carlos webpage or call the park for more information.
