The park features rolling hills, kettle depressions, and ridges - perfect terrain for a challenging orienteering meet! Meet at the visitors' center for check-in and start/finish locations.

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.
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. MNOC would like to thank you for volunteering. We have a limited number of $5 REI gift cards for each meet to give thank you's to volunteers. If you would like one, please ask the race director. Learn more about volunteering.
Race results are usually published within 24 hours of the event. View our Race Results page to see the results.
