The park is centered on two small lakes, Green Lake and Round Lake, which have an unusual blue-green color. These lakes lie at the base of a gorge that is somewhat longer than a mile in length. The lakes and the gorge are remnants of the ice ages.
The lake’s unusual blue-green color is due to annual “whitings” that leave suspended mineral solids in its water.The mineral content of the water also makes the lake meromictic, which is quite rare.
Other activities include: camping, nature programs, swimming, fishing & miles of trails that can be used for hiking, biking, snowshoeing and cross-country skiing.
