Bemidji is the first city on the Mississippi River. Known for its lakes and forests, the city provides the fishing and wilderness experiences so many folks associate with Northwoods Country. Take in the world famous Paul Bunyan and Babe the Blue Ox statues, which are the second most-photographed attractions in America according to the Kodak Corporation.

We’re serious when we say Blackduck is “on top of the world.” The town is located about a large mallard’s beak from the Continental Divide, which separates the major watersheds in this neck of the woods. Blackduck isn’t only on top of the world, it also sits atop the northwest edge of Chippewa National Forest. We’re talking hunting, fishing and water sports. Or we could be talking hiking, bird watching and sightseeing.Learn More About Blackduck
It’s a popular fishery and a great resort community. It’s also an excellent vacation choice, especially since it’s near the Chippewa National Forest. Cass Lake is home to one of the world’s most amazing and rare natural attractions, 195-acre Lake Windigo, located on Star Island in the middle of Cass Lake. It’s recognized by Ripley’s Believe It or Not as the Northern Hemisphere’s only freshwater lake in an island in a freshwater lake. Visitors can reach Star Island, but only by boat.Learn More About Cass Lake
