Emerald Bay State Park preserves the natural heritage of the area and is a must-visit for nature lovers. One of the most scenic vistas are formed by the juxtaposition of the mountains against the lake and a unique landscape of granite and rock formed by the slow erosion of glaciers over millenia. Within the park visitors can camp, hike and climb with multiple well defined trails to explore, a great way to truly experience the natural wonder of the area. The Rubicon foot trail is a popular choice. A must-visit while in the park includes the stunning Vikingsholm, a Scandinavian castle, one of a kind in the Western hemisphere and the Tea House on Fannette Island. Other activities visitors can enjoy include swimming, kayaking, boating and climbing. For more details, visit the website.
