  • During normal times there is a $5 charge to park in the lot here. Now, September 16, 2020 when I visited, the visitor center is closed but one can still hike the trails and the beach area. Of course.....  more »
  • Take a quick class at the Science Center. (Closed on our day). Read about Minnesota gardens. Follow the path down to the shore. Watch the waves or dig your hands into the rocks for the elusive agate!  more »
  • This is a great place to take an easy family-friendy or senior hike, there are very well marked trails, stairs and a lot of signs that explain the history, geography and botany of the area. A great place to picnic on the beach and then to walk to the point and look back at the whole bay that you've just walked; great view. Very scenic, relaxing hike. On the day we went they were tagging and releasing birds, which was one of the many things they do there to try to conserve and monitor the area.
  • $5 for parking that helps to support the nature center. There were quite a lot of different birds around and can't hear any of the cars from nearby highway. The volunteers that we met were extremely friendly. Not our favorite beach in the area, but they have quite a few educational opportunities and a beautiful nature trail.
