The watering hole at Rice Lake State Park is so named because for centuries Native American tribes harvested boatloads of wild rice from these shallow, marshy waters. Not ideal for swimming, this southeastern Minnesota lake is a happy place for boaters and fishers looking to bask in seclusion. Small and private, this major wetland blooms with wildflowers in the spring, making it a pretty magical spot for picnics. Walk-in, cart-in, and even canoe-in sites are available—paddling across the pond to one of the rustic cabins is your best option for a solitary retreat.

Looking for a little taste of society and culture? Head into nearby Owatonna, where the Village of Yesteryear, an historic 1800s town, offers tours to history buffs. Before you head back to your tent, grab a pint at Reggie’s Brewhouse, a Cheers-like spot with billiards and live bands, where locals make the newcomers feel plenty welcome.
