In an article entitled "The Lost Parks," Field & Stream magazine said, "If Minnesota’s Lake of the Woods is well known, this park on its south shore is not." That is truly unfortunate, unless you are one of the few who gets quiet access to it. It has a three mile long beach and many woodland trails within its nearly 3,000 acre expanse. There are about 60 campsites but they are primitive so bring everything you need and please do not leave anything behind. You can fish, sunbathe (if you happen to be there the day that is summer this year), and it is a birdwatcher's paradise. The park office will gladly supply you with a guide to all of the bird species in the area. Three of the species that you might be more likely to see here than elsewhere include the bald eagle, terns, and the "threatened" piping plover.
I always thought of it as being in Baudette but the Postal Service says that it is in Williams, which is even smaller than Baudette.
To get there from the west end of Baudette, take Highway 172, 10 miles north to County Road 8. Go west on 8 to the park entrance.
The Northwest Angle is almost one of those places that you cannot get to from here. You can get there but you should start in Warroad or Baudette and you have to go by water, air, or Canada. There is no land connection between the remainder of the US and the Northwest Angle. It is about 60 miles (97 km) by road through Canada, if you are driving from Roseau or Warroad, or you can catch a float plane from Baudette or Warroad. You can also go by boat and there is a marine tour service.
