Visit Memorial Park. The park was dedicated on the 10th anniversary of 9/11. A steel beam the Marshall Fire department received from the World Trade Center in New York City is the centerpiece of the memorial.

Bike the Camden Trail. Take a smooth ride or walk or run on the newly paved bike trail from Marshall to Camden State Park. Birds, small wild animals, and buffalo are common to see on this beautiful trail.

Go fishing. Marshall is a prime spot for fishing, with the Redwood River flowing throughout the entire town. Drive out to Camden State Park and fish for brown trout in the Redwood River or bluegill a couple miles up the road at Brawner Lake.
