“Two Lakes and Plentiful Forests!”
Green Lakes State Park's outstanding features are its two glacial lakes surrounded by upland forest. Both Round and Green Lakes are meromictic lakes, which means that there is no fall and spring mixing of surface and bottom waters. Such lakes have a high potential for evidence of ancient plant and animal life. Another special feature of the park is the 18-hole Green Lakes State Park Golf course designed by Robert Trent Jones, where visitors can snowshoe in winter, and there are 10 miles of trails that cross-country skiers can use.
We were at Green Lakes on a rather overcast day, hoping to swim in the lake however they have a lot of rules and are quite strict. The life guards have to be present, you cannot have floaties, if you wish to kayak etc. you have to rent it from them. If you're only going to swim I do not think it is worth the cost of the entrance fee.
Lame that they don't allow for private kayaks or boats. They don't clearly post that either.
I really enjoyed camping and hiking here. The lakes are beautiful and the signs all around them talking about nature and how things were formed were excellent. The camp sites are a little small, but all in all very nice. You can easily walk around both lakes and it's only a few miles on the shorter of the trails. Did the hiking and camping with my dog.
This place is the worst campground I've ever been to. The sites are tiny and crowded. Quiet hours are not enforced even though there are cops rolling through constantly. I'm pretty sure I was listening to an underage kegger all night. If you like to sleep at night don't come here.
stunning lakes! but the paths are not that greatly indicated once you get on the outskirts. lost the trail twice and got back on it by doing off trail.
If you are in love with nature, you might become obsessed with this wonderful place.
Such an amazingly beautiful place to camp! The lake is stunning!
