What are the Mine Pit Lakes in Cuyuna?

What once were massive iron ore mining pits in the early 1900s shut when mining came to a halt. With time, large trees and plants grew in these old red dirt pits. Now, spring fed and incredibly deep, the pits are shockingly beautiful lakes. The 15 mine lakes are endless, sprawling miles through the entire Cuyuna State Recreation Area. You can find yourself in secluded paradise, gliding along the crystal clear, turquoise shoreline.
