This county park has a newish disc golf course, and it’s also home to the Eagle Lake Observatory, the main outpost for the Minnesota Astronomical Society. This observatory is actually composed of 3 separate facilities with a variety of telescopes, and there are public programs and “star parties.” Four miles of walking trails take hikers through woods and prairie. During the summer, weekly family programming is offered, and the season closes each year with a chili cook- off. Campsites are fairly close together. Pets are allowed.
