Lac qui Parle State Park Professional Review and Guide

"Lac qui Parle means “lake that speaks,” which is what Dakota Indians called the lake that’s the centerpiece of this park, due in part to its location along a migratory path of Canada geese, which are rampant in spring and fall. The lake has a good population of walleye, northern pike, perch, and crappie. There are 7 miles of hiking trails, along which plenty of wildlife may be spotted. During the winter, there are 5 miles of groomed cross- country ski trails.

This park is listed on the National Register of Historic Places with a number of WPA historic sites in the park, and it’s adjacent to the Lac qui Parle Mission site. Tours are offered in the summer. Campsites are spacious and shaded, with plenty of privacy. Pets are allowed."
