Chippewa National Forest

Traveling to the Chippewa National Forest means traveling "up north." The Forest, located in the heart of northern Minnesota, is a celebration of seasons, culture, and environment. There is history here—of Paleo-Indian people living along the lake and river shores 10,000 years ago, Dakota and Anishinabe people, French Voyageurs and early loggers. In 1902, Congress Passed the Morris Act and created the Minnesota Forest Reserve, which in 1908 became a National Forest. Today, there are 666,542-acres of Chippewa National Forest to explore and enjoy.
