Now's the time to reserve camping spot
Even though we're stuck in winter, it's not a bad idea to start planning for summer, especially if you're thinking of camping this year at Lake Carlos State Park.
The reason is that among the 64 state parks in Minnesota, it is the second most popular place to camp.
In 2018, Lake Carlos ranked second only to Itasca State Park in the total number of campsite reservations with 11,306, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.
The spots fill up fast, assistant park manager Ryan Sansness said, because it's one of the busiest parks in Minnesota and it provides plenty of variety for visitors and its excellent camping sites.
"The biggest draw is the lake itself," he said. "There many activities for people to do
here, including watching the beautiful sunsets during the evening hours."
