Minnesota State and Public Parks

There are 66 parks and 6 recreation areas in the Minnesota State Park system. (This photo was taken at Lake Carlos State Park near Alexandria, MN.)

I’ve been to most of them and we’ll (hopefully) be getting to them all over time.

State Parks are wonderful places to go with your camera. Keep your eyes open. Learn to see. You’ll find hundreds of opportunities for great photos.
