Lake Elmo Park Reserve

Lake Elmo Park Reserve Summer



Lake Elmo Park Reserve is 2,165 acres (3.5 square miles) with 80% of its acreage set aside for preservation and protection. This portion will eventually resemble the land as it was prior to the arrival of the European settlers in the mid-1800s. This park reserve offers gently rolling hills with a variety of landscapes, including forest and prairie. Watch for pheasants, weasels, red fox, woodpeckers, cardinals, cottontail rabbits, squirrels, and white-tailed deer.

Vehicle permits are required for all vehicles entering the park.

The Lake Elmo Park Reserve contact station is open daily from 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
