This Little Known Park In Minnesota Is The Perfect Place To Get Away From It All

There are few places in Minnesota more secluded than the islands on some of our larger lakes. When you’re looking for a true getaway, nothing beats taking a boat ride out to your own piece of paradise. One island in particular will really take you far away, because it’s the northernmost park in the entire state park system. It’s the Garden Island State Recreation Area, and it’s sitting in the middle of Lake of the Woods between the Northwest Angle and Zippel Bay.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:
