Why It’s a Must-Do
Simply put? The park’s namesake, Mirror Lake. Surrounded by sandstone bluffs, it’s a serene escape from the chaos of the world beyond the park. The lake is so calm at times that not a single ripple interrupts the surface, hence it’s mirrorlike appearance. The lake reflects a wooded shoreline with cliffs up to 50 feet high, and it boasts a swimming beach and wetlands that are home to a variety of wildlife.
