Description

Spend the night at Big Island Campground, which sits atop a large 116-acre island in Albert Lea Lake. The island is covered in a maple and basswood forest, offering shade and privacy to campers. Birdwatchers are in luck—you can often find many species of migratory waterfowl here. Hikers will want to explore the miles of trails through the marshes, forests, and grasslands of the park...you know, use up all your energy adventuring before crashing in your tent!
