      Paul Bunyan State Forest's 105,113 acres feature a terrain that's rough and hilly, with many tiny ponds and bogs.

      Paul Bunyan State Forest's hundreds of miles of trails among pine forests makes it one of premier state forest destinations.

      Visitors choose among Paul Bunyan State Trail, North Country National Scenic Trail, Martineau OHM Trails, and Round River Drive ATV Trail to explore.

      Gulch Lake and Mantrap Lake campgrounds and day-use area in the Paul Bunyan State Forest can serve as handy overflow campgrounds or as a great alternative to the more developed and heavily used Itasca State Park.
