Big Stone Lake provides the setting for this popular camping and picnic area nestled in the shade of a native wooded forest.

Along the many hiking trails, you can observe wildlife, prairie plants and scenic vistas.
History of the Area
Runoff from melting glaciers 10,000 years ago created the river Warren. A section of the river is known today as Big Stone Lake. Rugged rock-strewn bluffs and scenic timbered shorelines from the setting of this park.

The first Europeans came to this area in 1678 when French explorers from Montreal and Quebec came searching and found fur-bearing animals. An excellent trading business with area American Indians prompted the English to claim the area.
