Monson Lake State Park
Monson Lake State Park was originally established in 1923 as a memorial to members of the Broberg pioneer family who perished in the one of the first conflicts of the 1862 US-Dakota conflict. It’s among the state’s smaller parks, but it’s a favorite with anglers out for Panfish, Northern, Bass and Walleye.
Birdwatchers bring binoculars on the lookout for a range of waterfowl. The park only offers about a mile of trails and the campground offers 20 sites. The park is one of Minnesota’s quieter destinations, but if you’re looking for a relaxing getaway, this is your place.
Monson Lake State Park is located two and a half miles southwest of Sunburg on the Glacial Ridge Trail Scenic Byway in Minnesota’s Swift County.
