The Hidden State Park Beach In Minnesota That Is So Worth The Visit
Given Minnesota’s more than 10,000 lakes, there are endless opportunities to cool off in the summer. But many of the most popular swimming holes, lakes, and pools are just a little too crowded to fully enjoy them. Luckily, there are secret spots hiding all over the state where you can cool off away from the crowds. One of our favorites is at Afton State Park. This beautiful park has a hidden beach that, when you find it, will become your new favorite spot.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life.
