Minnesota is a state in the Midwestern United States. Owing to its large number of lakes, the state is informally known as the “Land of 10,000 Lakes.” The word Minnesota comes from the Dakota name for the Minnesota River.

The state’s first state park, Itasca State Park, was established in 1891, and is the source of the Mississippi River. Today it has72 state parks and recreation areas, 58 state forests covering about four million acres (16,000 km²), and numerous state wildlife preserves, all managed by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.
