Published Sept. 4, 2015

ST. PAUL, Minn. – The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, St. Paul District, announces reservation changes to its Cross Lake Recreation Area, in Crosslake, Minnesota, effective Sept. 8.

The Corps’ recreation site will be completely first come, first served for the remainder of the 2015 recreation season as a result of construction improvements to the campground and day-use areas.
