This Little Known Natural Oasis Is Hiding In Minnesota… And You’re Going To Love It

Beautiful sweeping views and massive lakes await you when you venture into the Cuyuna Country State Recreation Area. It is miles of a beautiful oasis northeast of Brainerd. A trip into this state recreation spot is always an unforgettable experience, and the best part is – it’s usually deserted.

There is something for everyone at this recreation spot, but the views are definitely the best part of making the journey. You won’t believe how fast time flies when you’re enjoying the beauty of this area.
