Sakatah Lake State Park
By Jim Umhoefer
This park is on the edge of two bygone plant communities. The Big Woods to the north was once a great hardwood forest; the prairie to the south and west was an immense sea of rolling grassland. Today, most of the land is cultivated, but Lake Sakatah State Park allows a glimpse into the past.
Sakatah Lake State Park is located in Waterville in Minnesota’s Le Sueur County.
