    It is a very good assessment of the Loon Lake Cemetery and why the damage and vandalism was done to this historic cemetery. It talks about the thoughtlessness and disrespect for the Loon Lake Cemetery. Prof. Waskul teaches Sociology at Minnesota State University and has done extensive research for this article.

    -Access to the cemetery is off Co Rd 4 at the Robertson County Park entrance. Continue past the county building after turning off Co. 4, then shortly after take the turn to the right and park by the dumpster. You will see this sign...you must walk to the cemetery starting just beyond this sign, about a 5 minute walk if moving briskly.

    The cemetery is located in the background near the center of the photo by the evergreen trees in the grove to the right of the picture center. The cemetery itself is occasionally mowed down, but chances are the overgrowth will be quite thick if you visit.

    Another photo shows a view near the cemetery as you look back toward the SW where you parked. Note the trail which is nothing more than a path through the open field. It appears like a long walk. At a brisk pace, you can make the completed walk in 5 minutes. The trail is visible in the satellite photo above.
