Park Rapids Event Calendarminnesota lakes vacation









The quiet, peaceful Minnesota lakes, recreation and natural beauty of the Park Rapids Lakes Area along with dining, shopping, attractions and quality Lodging at Resorts, Hotels, B&Bs and Campgrounds make a week, weekend get-away or day trip to Minnesota memorable and full of family fun.

Adventures await all year long with local area events. Whether you're a fisherman wanting to go fishing in one of over 400 area Minnesota lakes and need to rent recreational equipment so you can enjoy the woods and water, you can find what you're looking for on your vacation in Minnesota. Come see the Legends & Logging Days every August. Play golf on over a dozen fantastic golf courses. Go biking or hiking along the Heartland Trail, a 49-mile paved trail winding through lakes and forests of MN from Park Rapids to Cass Lake, or explore any one of the five State Forests in the area.

A few of our favorite MN winter activities include snowmobiling and cross-county skiing all winter long, which you can enjoy while staying at one of over 25 resorts and motels open year round.
