Green Lakes State Park features two glacial lakes surrounded by upland forest. 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. Due to the sensitive nature of both Green and Round Lakes, no outside/private boats, kayaks, or canoes are allowed.Drive yourself and visit this beautiful state park at your own leisure or indicate your interest in riding the bus. Barnes Center Recreation staff will offer a brief orientation, provide maps and some general information about trails, timing of hikes, etc.
