Moose Lake State Park

How to Get to Moose Lake State Park: Take the Moose Lake exit off I-35. Then drive east for .5 miles on County Road 137 until you see the park entrance.

Park Highlights:

  • This 1,239-acre park allows you to feel like you are in the “north woods” part of the state, without traveling through one of our vast state forests.
  • Two beautiful lakes make this a destination for those who love to fish, swim, or just paddle on the water.

Moose Lake’s Natural Attractions: The rolling hills within the park are forested with a mix of maples, birch, basswood, and aspen. Open fields, lakes, and ponds combine to create a habitat for a wide variety of wildlife. Expect to see deer, geese, ducks, and many songbirds.

Things to Do in Moose Lake State Park: The sandy swimming beach attracts many area residents and visitors to the park. Enjoy the picnic area near the beach. There are picnic tables, fire rings, a playground, and volleyball and horseshoe courts. 

You can fish from the pier or rent boats, canoes, and kayaks to get out on the water. In both Moosehead Lake and Echo Lake you may catch northern pike, walleye, bass, and pan fish.  

Five miles of hiking trails include 1/3 of a mile of paved, wheelchair accessible trail. The trails wind around wildlife ponds, through wooded and meadow areas, and past the lakes.  

You can connect to The Willard Munger Trail, the longest paved trail in the U.S., just two miles outside the park. This 60-mile trail will take you from Hinckley to Duluth. 

In winter, 5 miles of trails are available for cross-country skiing, and 2 miles of trails are groomed for snowmobiling. Snowshoeing is permitted throughout the park. 

Camping in Moose Lake State Park: There are 33 drive-in campsites for tents and RVs; 20 sites have electrical hookups. There are also 2 walk-in campsites, located about 150 feet from the parking lot, and 1 tents-only group site that accommodates up to 45 people. Campground amenities include picnic tables, fire rings, showers, and flush and vault toilets.
