Get your binoculars ready for a stay at Myre - Big Island State Park, where American white pelicans regularly fly over the lake, and spring through fall seasons make for crazy migration sightings. The park protects eight miles of shoreline on Albert Lea Lake, an oasis of crazy nature and diverse wildlife on the southern Minnesota/Iowa border.

The lake can get a little too weedy for swimming (or maybe you're all about that!), but it’s a beauty to behold the highly eutrophic surface covered in blooming lillies and moss. Paddle a boat out to the 116-acre Big Island covered in maple forests, or take the causeway connecting it to the mainland. Camping is available on both the Big and Little Islands—explore all of it on the trails that lead you through wet lowlands, priarie grasses, and savanna oak landscapes. Artifacts reveal humans have lived here for over 9000 years, so make history by continuing the tradition!
