Ah, spring. The flowers are beginning to bloom, the birds are chirping, and it’s (probably) done snowing.
But as new life returns to the Marshall area and the days grow longer, spending time outdoors also becomes more common.
And more fun.
So if you’re in our neck of the woods in Minnesota, here are some ways you can get out there, and see all of what we have to offer.
Go for a Bike Ride
Of all the great ways to explore the outdoors, bike riding is easily one of the best. You can bike at a pace that suits you best, and cover as much or as little ground as you’d like.
Between trails in town and bike paths in local parks, there’s a wide variety of routes and scenery to choose from.
Didn’t bring your own bike? No problem! The latest addition to Marshall is a bike share program. You can find the rental station at 3 different locations, and keep the rental for up to 3 days.
So what are you waiting for? Get pedaling!
There’s nothing quite like throwing a line in the water and relaxing by the shore. And in Marshall, there are so many great places to go fishing.
Between the Redwood River and the Twin Lakes, there are miles of tree-lined shores to fish from.
The lakes are well known for their Northern Pike, however, the lakes also hold largemouth bass, crappie, bluegill, and walleye.
Regardless of what you’re hoping to catch, it’s always a good time on the water.
Search for Wildlife
Contrary to popular belief, Southwest Minnesota isn’t just flat farmland. Among these woodlands and grasslands are ecosystems buzzing with life, you just have to take the time to look.
From Camden State Park, to Garvin Park, to the many Minnesota public lands, there are hundreds of acres to be explored.
Keep the camera handy. You may spot anything from deer and hawks to coyotes, raccoons, and mink throughout the land.
Enjoy a Hike
In addition to the chance of seeing wildlife, there are some fantastic hiking trails to be explored in the locations listed above.
Looking for something a little less ambitious?
Take a walk along the boardwalks or paved trails found in one of the many local state parks. Who knows, you may even find one of Marshall’s picturesque bridges over the water!
Find a Camping Spot
By the river. By a lake. In the woods. In town. Close to town. Wherever you choose, Lyon County has no shortage of camping spots and electrical hook-ups.
Whether you’re a traditional tent camper or a radical RV’er, you’re sure to find a spot you love.
So throw some gear in your pack and get out there!
Whatever outdoor activities you like to enjoy, we hope you can get outside and explore all that the Marshall area has to offer.
Between fishing, camping, and hiking, we believe there’s truly something for everyone to love. And hey, if you can’t find a camping spot you love, or need a few more creature comforts, we’re here for you. You’re welcome at EverSpring any time.
