Location

From the Twin Cities, take I-35 north to Forest Lake. Exit right (east) on US-8. Follow US-8 for 23 miles, through several towns, until it crosses the St. Croix River into Wisconsin. 3/4 mile after crossing the river, exit right (south) on SH-35 and go another 3/4 miles to the park entrance on the right. Look for O-meet signs once inside the park. Start / finish will be at the Camp Interstate Shelter.

 

Volunteer

It takes a handful of volunteers to make each of our events successful. If you would like to learn more about volunteering, please see our Volunteering page. And as a reward, you'll get a free race entry the next Regular event you choose.

 

Come Clean Leave Clean

The Minnesota Orienteering Club practices a Come Clean Leave Clean policy. This helps us maintain a good relationship with the parks we utilize, sets a good example for other users, and limits the transfer and spread of many of the plants that make our venues less enjoyable.
