This urban day-use park is a great place to swim, sailboard, fish, picnic, birdwatch, or take a stroll. Plan to stretch your legs on a walk around the lake or stop by the FWP Region 5 headquarters on the south shore to fish from Roger's Pier or tour the interpretive center (weekdays from 8 to 5). Non-motorized boating only is allowed. There are two reservable group use shelters for social events and a playground. A special feature of Lake Elmo is its Dog Park. The 200-square-foot fenced-in water-adjacent area is located on the west side of the lake. Each visitor is allowed a maximum of two dogs in the park. Dogs must have up-to-date vaccinations, current licenses, respond to voice commands, and be in visual control. Dogs must be 4 months or older. Dogs in heat may not enter the park. Remember that dogs must be on a leash in all other areas of Lake Elmo State Park. Enjoy this wonderful oasis in the city with your canine friend and be sure to clean up your pet's waste.
