Big Bog

State Recreation Area - Minnesota

Big Bog State Recreation Area is located on Minnesota State Highway 72, north of Waskish, Minnesota. It covers primarily swamps, bogs, and upland "islands". A recent addition to the Big Bog State Recreation Area is a raised boardwalk across the bog which allows visitors to explore one mile (1.6 km) into the "islands" of spruce within the bog, as well as the open wetlands. Numerous signs identify aspects of the bog, including pitcher plants and an early failed attempt at draining the swamp lands. A parking pass needs to be purchased at the nature center nine miles south, on the northern side of the town of Waskish.
