If a stroll past the concession stand stocked soaking up the sun is your passion, play with your summertime favorites.

Camden State Park


Camden State Park offers much for visitors to enjoy. Fish for brown trout in the Redwood River or bass and bluegill in Brawner Lake. Hike the trails or cool off in the spring-fed pool. Walk along the wooded river valley, climb the Dakota Valley Trail to the lookout for great fall colors, or go canoeing on Brawner Lake.

Woodlands, maples, basswoods, oaks, and cottonwoods, dominate this park. Sun-drenched prairies, grasslands, and marshes offer added diversity. The park provides picnic areas, campgrounds (drive-in, horseback, and group), swimming, hiking, and cross-country skiing.

Twin Lakes Park

Opened in 2016, Twin Lakes Park is Lyon County's newest park; nestled between East Twin and West Twin lakes. Two campsites are able to be reserved. Twin Lakes Park came to fruition from the desire of a local landowner to leave a legacy with land he owned. Other area landowners have also sold land to the County for future generations to enjoy camping and recreation in the area.

Twin Lakes Park exists from partnerships, generous donations, and Clean Water Land & Legacy Amendment Funding. A plan for future campground development is in the planning stages. Lyon County hopes to secure additional State Legacy Grant funding in the future for expanding this beautiful park area.

Garvin Park

Garvin Park

Majestic oak woodlands dominate the steeply sloping riparian landscape of the Cottonwood River within the 700 acre Garvin Park. Miles of trails, and plentiful rest areas allow visitors substantial opportunity to explore the rich habitat and diverse wildlife that use this park. Regionally know for horseback riding, Garvin Park has three campgrounds, and numerous shelters and open space; providing peaceful locations to relax. Garvin Park attracts visitors as diverse as its environment for public recreation.


Bird Watching in Marshall, Minnesota 


A birder called me to ask, "Where should I go birding in Lyon County? I've only got four hours."Initially, I'm jealous - four hours is a lot of birding time to a parent of a young, growing family. But, setting aside my envy, the answer comes quickly. "The Camden State Park/Black Rush Lake area". With its extreme habitat diversity this is the place to start a quick birding adventure in Lyon County.

The riparian woodland cutting through the remnant prairie landscape offers opportunity for birders to view both prairie, and woodland species. Extensive efforts to reclaim the prairie to a more native form have added to the richness of the prairie landscape. Gray Partridge, Northern Harrier, several sparrows (including Grasshopper Sparrow), and Upland Sandpiper nest here, while Short-eared Owl, Rough-legged Hawk, and a dozen sparrow species can be seen during migration.
