Wish You Were Here!

The Cuyuna area is experiencing a time of tremendous transition and growth. Only 35 years ago the town was dependent on local mining operations and manufacturing. Now those same abandoned mine pits and the natural resources around them attract people from all over the country... and world. They come for the internationally-renowned mountain biking trails, the crystal clear lakes, the mighty Mississippi River, and a myriad of other amenities.


The area offers an abundance of outdoor activities, learning, and adventure for sports fanatics, families, and visitors alike!


Plus, Cuyuna (and the broader Brainerd Lakes Area) boasts a wide variety of dining, lodging, and shopping options.
