Wake to the call of loons at this state park in the transition zone between prairie and hardwood forest. Two yurts lie on the far side of Annie Battle Lake, a quiet waterway closed to motorized boats. Want to spend the night? Paddle across the lake in a canoe, or bike or walk on a paved path. 25287 Whitetail Lane, Battle Lake; 1-218-864-0110; dnr.state.mn.us/state_parks/glendalough
