Cuyuna Country State Recreation Area

Abandoned by mining companies more than 30 years ago, this area of former mining pits and rock deposit stockpiles now boasts regenerated vegetation and clear lakes that draw a wide range of recreation enthusiasts. Twenty-five miles of natural shoreline can be explored by boat or canoe and anglers can cast a line for trout, northern, bass, crappie, or sunfish.

The lake is surrounded by an extensive trail network that allows for exploration of the shoreline and the woods around the lake. Some are quick hikes while others can take the better part of a day.

As one of Minnesota’s newest State Recreation Areas, Cuyuna’s nearly 5,000 acres are mostly undeveloped. The park has quickly become popular, however, and receives over 100,000 annual visits with over 3,000 of those being overnight stays at one of its campgrounds.

The park is home to a variety of wildlife, including bald eagles, red fox, beavers, great blue herons, kingfishers, turkey vultures, red-tailed hawks, and raccoons.
