Visit Deer River, Minnesota


Regardless of the season, there are a variety of options for you to

partake in. Below, in the blue section, is a list that can help make

your stay enjoyable:


Welcome to Deer River, Minnesota a City for all seasons and Gateway to Chippewa National Forest.

Explore the winter woods by jumping on our miles of snowmobile trails. Desiring a different method of travel? Take to our ski trails and relax in the serenity of the north woods as you glide beneath the canopy of the forest.

Summer means time on the water and with numerous lakes within a few miles of Deer River, we are sure you will find one to your liking.

As autumn descends upon the north woods, spend time hiking local trails, watch a local football game, or find a cozy resort where you can relax beside the campfire.


When you invest money in your local economy, you’re not just helping local business owners – you’re also helping yourself. You’re making your town a better place to live in, with a rich character, thriving economy, and tightly knit community. And the more local businesses prosper, the more new ones will open, making it even easier to continue shopping locally in the future.

When you have shopping to do, it’s tempting to take the easy route and head down to the mall – or easier still, just browse Amazon but keeping your dollars in your hometown has other advantages that are just as important as saving a few bucks, even if they’re not immediately apparent. By shopping locally, you reap a number of benefits.
