Moose Lake State Park may make a camping woman out of me.

I decided I was excused from sleeping on the ground after I turned 40. If I was into camping, I'd go to Moose Lake State Park.

In fact, I'll probably go back sometime soon with a comfy chair, some food and drink, my camera and some binoculars just to spend a DAY communing with nature in one of the many park's lovely campsites.

If you've ever fantasized about living in the woods, this is the state park to visit. It was green and quiet, very peaceful. Plus, there's a nice swimming beach on Echo Lake and lots of hiking trails throughout the park.

Another interesting thing to see is the extensive display of Minnesota agates in the visitor center.

The park is just north of Hinckley, less than a mile east off I-35. If you got tired of cooking out, you could make a run to Tobies for some cinammon rolls and be back in a jiffy.

Moose Lake State Park Seems Like a Hidden Gem

Baya Clare-

Thanks for sharing your memories of Moose Lake State Park. Our family hasn't had the privilage of visiting Moose Lake yet. Based on your description, it just moved up on to our list for this summer.

I had read about the largest display of agates in the state. That alone would be worth the trip. Making a stop at Tobie's for elephant ears would just top it off.

Thanks again for sharing. We hope you come back soon.
