But it’s possible to get even more away from it all when you visit one unique island in the middle of Lake of the Woods. It’s only accessible by boat, but it’s a wonderful place for fishing, picnicking, and enjoying one of the least-visited recreation areas in the state. Read on below to learn all that you’ll find at Garden Island State Recreation Area in northern Minnesota.
