Sit back, relax, and enjoy the flora, the fauna, and the fishing at Hays Lake Campground in Hays Lake Park. An iconic Minnesota shoreline, Hays Lake serves up only the finest seafood, caught and prepared by your favorite angler—you! Wave hello (from a great distance) to the natural inhabitants of the area: black bear, moose, otter, beaver, and all the water bird you can imagine, from the trail or the beach. A natural descendant of Glacial Lake Agassis, Hays Lake Campground will fulfill all of your camping requirements and then some (Lake, check. Hiking, check. Primitive and RV sites, check, check.).
