Lac qui Parle

Let's go to Lac qui Parle State Park May 18-20.  From the park's website:

Lac qui Parle is a French translation of the name given to the lake by the Dakota Indians who called it the "lake that speaks." If you visit in the spring or fall you'll understand why. The lake is a stop over for thousands of migratory Canada geese and other waterfowl. You'll hear a chorus of honking, quacking, and other vocalizations. Paddle the lake, or cast a line and catch walleye, northerns, perch, or crappie. Explore one of the trails by foot or horseback. Visit the historic Fort Renville and Lac qui Parle mission sites. While in the area, be sure to visit the 33,000 acre Lac qui Parle Wildlife Management Area.

We'll be in group campsite 1.  Cost will be $25 for the trip.  This covers the campsite and firewood.  You will have to bring your own food and buy your own parking permit.

E-mail me if you have any questions.

    I hope to be up at the park on Saturday, but I'll get a site for my RV, and stop by to meet everyone.

    I was running out of characters! It's also Syttende Mai in Milan, just up from the park.{98C5F2E2-94FE-4777-AA49-C21A899F0286}&DE={203892AA-44BC-414F-8793-DCF7A475E721}
    And be sure to check out Tokheim Stoneware, about 6 miles up the road : I recommend the lower campground at LQP. Upper will be nice once the trees are established, but is so new that it can be pretty sun-baked and windblown just yet.

    So, the meetup Big Brother must have sent me this because it's in my neighborhood. It's pretty serendipitous, though, because we have some events planned in the neighborhood.
    Check out for some events that are planned on various rivers and parks in the neighborhood. Although the state park is not a "hub" this year, there are several river trips withing a 15 minute drive of LQP.
