It's a nice park, just not in a very interesting area. The trails are well-maintained, though the sign board maps have some errors. The staff at the gate were very friendly.

My wife and I travel to Lake Bronson almost every weekend in the summer. Being from Winnipeg, it's a relatively short and easy drive, straight south on highway 59. We stay in the Two Rivers Campground which affords us the privacy and seclusion that might elude us at the Lakeside Campground as that one I find, is more suited to... More

I camped here labor day weekend for a night. The campground by the lake was full so we ended up at the other campground. It was actually great. The campsite was private enough with lots of trees and foiliage around us. Plenty of room for the tents and a decent enough firepit with food grate. It worked great for dinner... More

There was a ranger that threatened he was going to call the sharif and have us removed cause we did not stop talking .. We where all sitting by our fire and minding our own business. When u camp you should be allowed... More

But once a year in August, it is the site of the International Woodcarver's Convention. In addition to carving classes and completition, there are art and quilting classes and presentations by The Monarch Man. Food carts... More

There are plenty of hiking trails, campsites, and a picnic area. The observation tower is cool to see; you get a nice view of the surrounding forest. Pike, Walleye, Bass and Crappies are the main fish species that you can catch. The Visitor's Center has many beautiful displays of wildlife. There are also some historic sites in the park, such...
