Return to the Source


Deep in the Northwoods of Minnesota lies the Heartland Lakes—an amazing area from Osage to Akeley and Itasca State Park to Menahga, including Park Rapids, Nevis, Dorset, Lake George and everywhere in between. When you visit Heartland Lakes, you connect with nature, family, and tradition.

Whether you visit Itasca State Park, home to the headwaters of the Mississippi River, or prefer to ride your bike along the Heartland Trail, one of the first rail-to-trail systems in the US and a prominent link between our communities, there’s something for everyone in Heartland Lakes. When these pastimes are enjoyed with family and friends, the shared experiences become the source of cherished traditions and treasured memories.
