Sucker Creek Preserve

Sucker Creek Preserve was acquired by the City of Detroit Lakes in August 2001, conserves 64.24 acres of a remnant of Minnesota’s original post-glacial maple-basswood forest for future generations. Visitors of all ages are offered a self-guided environmental learning experience. Topography includes swamp, designated trout stream, woods and prairie.
A circular parking lot welcomes you. A small prairie cul-de-sac hosts a hillside amphitheater allowing visitors a meadow-like view while learning about the Preserve. Unimproved north and south perimeter paths add adventure for the trekker (Handicapped Accessible)
