Sand Dunes State Forest, Big Lake Reviews
Beautiful landscape. Lots of Oak trees. A wonderful recreational forest that belongs to Minnesotans. Unfortunately, it is not uncommon to come across a lot of dumped trash because people are irresponsible and dump anything from microwaves to mattresses off the dirt roads there.
Lots of very nice horse trails but the parking lots are poorly marked.
This small State Forest Campground is a great place to visit all year around ! Many miles of hiking thru forest and rolling hills.
Lots of good marked trails. I went there mushroom hunting. Good parking
It's a really great area if you enjoy watching for wildlife and skiing and also snow mobiling
