Things to do in Lake Mille Lacs with Family
Here in the great north, one of our favorite autumn activities is hiking. It’s easy to see why we love it so much because of the plethora of gorgeous views and nature teeming with natural wonders. Whether you enjoy discovering native birds and wildlife or simply enjoy a bit of fresh air and peeking out over an outlook, there are so many things to take in that you will definitely want to take your time to soak it up. Into photography? Grab your camera, because there are sure to be endless images to capture along the way. Check out places like the Fire Tower in Mille Lacs Kathio State Park, Father Hennepin State Park, and Mille Lacs Soo Line Trails.
If you aren’t a fan of hiking, you can easily take in the gorgeous autumn views from the comfort of your vehicle by taking a scenic drive. Venture down the Lake Mille Lacs Scenic Byway for lookouts and a relaxing drive that gives you access to some of the most beautiful spots along the lake without ever needing to step out of the car. Visit a few interesting stops along the way like the giant Walleye in Garrison and the Lake Mille Lacs Indian Museum and Trading Post along with several other local gems speckling your route.
Fall Fishing at its Finest
Though the autumn months offer plenty of fun fall activities in Lake Mille Lacs on dry land, those with a passion for casting a line can’t wait to hit the water. Smallmouth bass fishing on Mille Lacs is popular, but autumn is also when you might be able to catch a monster walleye, muskie or northern pike. Cooling water temperatures create the perfect environment to send hungry fish closer to the surface in search of their next meal. So, get your bait and lures ready, because a stellar fall fishing is fast approaching!
Of course, fall brings hunting, as well. It’s the one time of year you can spend the morning hunting and the evening out on the water with the kids trying to catch a final fish dinner before the snow falls.
