Bear Head tops park list
Bear Head Lake State Park, just south of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness in Ely, has been voted as "America's Favorite Park" in an online nationwide campaign.
In addition to the honor, the park received a $100,000 gift offered through America's State Parks Foundation, which was made possible by Coca-Cola's Live Positively initiative.
The America Is Your Park campaign, which ran July 29-Aug. 31, invited Americans to vote online for their favorite state or national park. The campaign's goal was to encourage families to be active outdoors this summer and to help their favorite park win funding.
