Moose Lake State Park holds free open house during Agate Days

Monday, July 13th, 2009 at 8:44 am

Moose Lake State Park will hold an open house on July 18-19, in conjunction with Moose Lake’s Agate Days celebration.

Local residents and visitors can visit the park’s Agate and Geological Center, with its fascinating gem and mineral collections and geological interpretive displays, without paying the Minnesota State Park vehicle permit entry fee.

Moose Lake State Park also offers a variety of outdoor activities like hiking, swimming and picnicking.  Those who would like to get out on the waters of Lake Echo can rent boats, canoes, and kayaks at the park.

New his year, people can also fish at the park without a fishing license. A new state law allows people to fish from shore or while wading within the state park, or from a boat or float on lakes that are entirely within state park borders. Echo Lake is within Moose Lake State Park’s borders.
