Mille Lacs Kathio State Park has an incredible history, being one of Minnesota’s most significant archeological sites with evidence dating back to the Paleo period. It was formed by powerful geological forces over 10,000 years ago. And it was once home to Native Americans and French explorers. It's woofin’ amazing!
No doubt your pal will be impressed with the park’s history.
They will also be amazed at the pawsome trails. Landmark Trail is a self guided
one mile jaunt through the woods. It runs along the shore of Ogechie Lake and
highlights Mille Lacs Kathio State Park as a National Historic Landmark
District. Touch of the Earth Trail is another self guided path. It’s only half
a mile and includes a boardwalk that wanders through a tamarack bog. There are
several other furrific trails that vary in length, including the 4.5 mile hike
to the secluded Black Bass Lake.
If you want to see the park from a bird’s eye view, climb the 100-foot observation tower and look out upon the Mille Lacs Lake area. While the view is puptacular any time of year, it’s extra beautiful in the fall. Your pup will need to stay behind with another member of your pawty while you climb the tower.
Millie Lacs Kathio State Park also has a wide variety of
campsites. Tent, RV, walk-in, and backpacking sites area all available. Plus, there are horse camp and group sites. Flush
toilets, showers, and hook-ups are available. Day visitors can make use of the
picnic facilities. If you have two legged children in two, stop by the large
playground so they can burn off some energy. No matter where you go in the park,
carry some clean up bags and pick up after your doggo. Tote water to share too!
No bones about it, your pup will love this woofderful
