A major draw of this state park is Annie Battle Lake, a 335-acre nonmotorized boating lake with large populations of sunfish and crappie, as well as some walleye. There are several creeks that meander out of Annie, ideal for canoers or kayakers to explore the park. On the north shore of the lake is the Glendalough Lodge, a historic site that once served as a private retreat and game farm for the Minneapolis Tribune. The park also offers 9 miles of hiking trails that ramble through prairie grasses and around the park’s lakes, and almost 9 miles of biking trails, some paved. Groomed cross- country ski trails and snowshoe trails are available in the winter. The sites are well spaced, and many are wooded, allowing considerable privacy. Pets are allowed.
