This Minnesota State Park nestles on the shore of Lake of the Woods, one of the largest lakes in the world. Almost 3,000 acres of forest are protected within its boundaries.
Zippel Bay State Park is at the tip of the Minnesota Arrowhead region and on the United States/Canada border. This is one of our least visited state parks, and also one of my favorites. I have wonderful memories of camping here with family and friends.
Zippel Bay State Park Highlights:
Bay State Park’s Natural Attractions: The three miles of white sand beach along the shore of the vast
lake give the feeling of being near an ocean. Bird-watchers will see many
water-loving birds like gulls, pelicans, osprey, cormorants, sandhill cranes,
and our state bird, the loon. The piping plover, one of the nation’s most
endangered birds, has been spotted here.
Eagles nest in the tall trees near the lake. Other attractions include wildlife like deer, moose, bears, otters, wolves, and pine martens.
Wildflowers, including the state flower, the Lady’s Slipper, bloom in spring and summer
Things to Do in Zippel Bay State Park: There are nine miles of hiking trails in the park. In winter, 11 miles of trails are groomed for cross-country skiing and 3 miles are groomed for snowmobiling. Snowshoeing is permitted within the park, except on groomed ski trails.
Camping in Zippel Bay State Park: There are 57 drive-in campsites for tents and RVs; there are no electrical hookups in this park. A rustic group camp for tents, small trailers, and campers accommodates up to 45 people.
