Lake County is located in the Arrowhead Region of Northeastern Minnesota, covering 2062 square miles with a population of 10,866 people. Within our boundaries are 4 state parks, a Nation Forest and the BWCAW. All offer superior hiking, camping, fishing and winter recreational opportunities. Snowmobiling, hiking, cross-country skiing and ATV trails are readily accessible throughout the county. Bordering our county is the largest freshwater lake in the world, Lake Superior. With its rugged beauty and pristine shoreline, it offers many recreational opportunities as well as historical shipwrecks, two operating lighthouses and two public marinas.

Lake County is rich in cultural heritage with many historical sites and museums to experience. Special events occur during every season, from the John Beargrease Sled Dog Marathon in January to Grandma's Marathon in June, along with local community festivals. The largest city is Two Harbors, where the county seat is located. Here and in the City of Silver Bay, two operating harbors for shipping iron ore and taconite are located. Major industries in Lake County are mining, logging, wood products, shipping and transportation, manufacturing, health care and tourism. Come and grow with us!
