Recreated turn-of-the-century logging camp
After the exhibits, visit the logging camp where you'll find the camp blacksmith, saw filer, clerk, cook and lumberjacks. Then, board the moored river "wanigan," a floating cook shack used when the logs and men headed downstream to the mills. Then take a seat on the porch of a 1930s Minnesota Forest Service patrolman's cabin and lookout tower and hear about the ranger's important work protecting woodland resources.

 

 

Trails

Self-guided forest trails complete the story of life in the northern forests of Minnesota from ancient times to today.
