ALBERT LEA, Minn. — The nice weather had folks flocking to Minnesota state parks this weekend.
Myre-Big Island State Park, located just outside Albert Lea, saw many of their sites filled over the holiday weekend.
Despite the hot start to the Labor Day weekend, park leaders tell us folks were still out enjoying Mother Nature and the great outdoors.
“Good weekend,” Myre-Big Island Jerry Katzenmeyer said. “Good Camping weekend. It started out warm, but ended up nice and cool. We did have a good number of campers in and the ones here had a good time.”
He adds watercraft rentals were big over the weekend.
Several folks hit the water with kayaks and canoes to beat the heat and stay cool.
