FROM BICYCLE TRAILS TO MOUNTAIN BIKING TO WATERFALLS & PARKS
A 46-acre park located on the southeast shore of Loon Lake, this park is completely wooded and is abundant with natural flora and fauna. The purchase and development of this park was made possible by Federal Land and Water Conservation Funds as well as state funds.
Facilities include: picnic area,rest room, shelter house with fireplace and electricity, grills, tables, observation tower, trails and playground equipment; camp ground, trailer campsites with 20, 30, and 50-amp outlets, pressure water system, rest rooms, hot showers, tables, grills, playground equipment, dump station, and an asphalt bike trail connecting to the Dickinson County, Iowa, trail system (55 miles).
During a survey of the park area in 1975 by the Minnesota Historical Society, it was revealed that this area was inhabited during the woodland cultural period which dates back to 200 B.C. Because of this, it is felt that this park area is one of the most important archaeological sites in Jackson County and has been added to the National Register of Historic Places.
