Park Rapids / Nevis / Akeley, Minnesota

About the Area

Park Rapids sits between the popular resort destinations of Leech Lake and Detroit Lakes, and on the western edge of Minnesota's dense forests. Just to its north is Itasca State Park, the most famous in Minnesota, and the headwaters of the Mississippi River.

At somewhat of a crossroads for tourism, you will find a busy downtown packed into a few interesting blocks. It's a great hang out for both full time and part time residents, many of whom spend extended vacations on the wide variety of area lakes. Although the region has its share of weekenders, its location tends to bring a large number of residents who call Park Rapids their summer home.

Waterfront real estate is found around most every bend from the tiny resort communities of Lake George and Emmaville, to the familiar lake towns of Akeley and Nevis to the east. This vast core of lakes forces roads to constantly meander around well known water bodies like Potato Lake, Crow Wing Lakes, Fish Hook Lake and Lake BelleTaine.

The Park Rapids Area retains a special feeling that is hard to come by in many areas of Minnesota these days. While some popular vacation destinations from the past have become as congested as the places people try to get away from, Park Rapids and the communities that surround it have somehow held onto a slower, more relaxing pace. And the lake cabins and homes here have it, too.
