Search Onamia Minnesota

Visitors can learn about its rich history and all of Kathio's other treasures at the Visitor Center located next to the picnic grounds. Guests can climb the 100 ft. observation/fire tower and look across the majesty of Mille Lacs Lake. Kathio has a wonderful swimming beach plus canoes or rowboats that can be rented for a trip on the historic Rum River and Ogechie and Shakopee lakes. In the winter, visitors can cross-country ski on trails or take the family sledding on the sliding hill. Ride on Kathio's 19-mile statewide Grand-In-Aid snowmobile trail system or snowshoe on nearly 7 miles of pristine trail. The river, lakes and park trails offer visitors excellent opportunities to watch waterfowl, bald eagles, osprey, otter, beaver, loons, deer, bear, coyotes and many others. Take time to visit the Mille Lacs Indian Museum located just two miles north on US Hwy. 169. It is run by the Minnesota State Historical Society and exhibits the Mille Lacs area history from 1680 forward.
