Come enjoy an evening in the park by candlelight and moonlight. Snowshoe or walk the trail where you will be guided by the full moon, candles and lanterns. Then come warm up by the wood stove or enjoy snacks and refreshments in the Lakeview warming shelter.
*The lit trail for this event will be on the snowshoe trail in the tamarack bog. No other trails will be lit as our summer hiking trails are ALL groomed ski trails and are closed for the season to all people and pets, except those on skis. Please stay off groomed ski trails at all times unless skiing.
There is no cost for this event, but a Minnesota state parks vehicle permit is required to enter the park ($7/day or $35/year).
SAVE TIME! Get your vehicle permit in advance. Visit mndnr.gov/reservations, log in (or create an account), click on “entry permit,” select a duration of “one-day” ($7) or “year-round” ($35), and continue as directed. You’ll receive an email with a permit that can be printed and displayed in your vehicle during your visit.
If you are interested in volunteering with set-up, lighting or take-down of candles please call the park as well (320)852-7200
