Moose Lake State Park
The 1,200-acre Moose Lake State Park attracts both vacationers passing through and those who return for the intimate atmosphere. All the park’s development is wrapped around the northern section of three-armed Echo Lake.
Moose Lake State Park is located near the town of Moose Lake in Minnesota’s Carlton County.
Moose Lake State Park has about five miles of hiking trails. A trail swings from the campground down to the lake and around one of the arms to the day-use area. Visitors can enjoy a shoreline picnic on Echo Lake or a leisurely afternoon on the swimming beach.
The nearby community of Moose Lake is a popular year-round vacation destination and is an access point to the paved Willard Munger State Trail, which runs between Hinckley and Duluth for 70 miles.
Fishing and Boating
Northern, sunfish and largemouth bass are the most common catches. The T-shaped lake is ideal for canoeists, who can enjoy a lazy afternoon paddling along the shoreline.
No groomed trails at this park, but you may break your own backcountry trails. Snowshoeing is allowed throughout the park.
