Potholes State Park Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Potholes State Park covers 640 acres and features over 1 mile of shoreline that includes a good swimming beach. Potholes is named for, well, the potholes—great big ones. They are actually depressions in the sand dunes that were created by glaciers during the ice age and then subsequently flooded.
A good hiking trail follows the Frenchman Hills Wasteway. Local birdlife includes white
pelicans, sandhill cranes, and great blue herons. Fish include largemouth and smallmouth bass, rainbow trout, crappie, bluegill, and perch. Metal detecting is prohibited."
