Park Rapids – Where the Mighty Mississippi Begins…

We’re home to the Headwaters of the Mississippi at Itasca State Park. Since our lakes and woods never close, there are plenty of year-round activities; from silent sports such as hiking, biking, and cross country skiing to motor sports enjoying water recreation,  ATVs, and snowmobiles. Savor the flavors of Dorset, the “Restaurant Capital of the World,” or stroll through the shops on Main in scenic Downtown Park Rapids. Immerse yourself in the arts and history. Our business directory lists the very best we have to offer. Whether you choose to vacation, work or move to the area, you will be happy you did. Take pleasure in hundreds of pristine lakes, miles of trails, and unique shopping in the Park Rapids Lakes Area. Find out more here, or call 218-732-4111 and we’ll be happy to help you.
