Lake Louise State Park
By Jim Umhoefer
As Minnesota’s southernmost state park, Lake Louise is an attractive introduction to the recreational pleasures of the state. Families will find a peaceful lake setting for picnicking, swimming or hiking. Lake Louise State Park is located 1.5 miles north of LeRoy just off the Bluff Country Scenic Byway in Minnesota’s Mower County.
The paved Shooting Star Trail cuts through the park and connects nearby LeRoy with Rose Creek and beyond to the northwest. Highlights along this trail include remnant prairie and a trail shelter built to resemble a Norwegian church.
