As our name implies, this is lake country. We have more than 400 lakes within 25 miles of Detroit Lakes in northwest Minnesota. Whether you are looking for a nature getaway, an active family vacation, a memorable conference or wedding, or a pampered rest we have something for you.

Minnesota Governor Walz recently signed an executive order outlining sensible steps Minnesotans and the state government can take to protect citizens by slowing the spread of COVID-19.  At this time, there are no confirmed cases of COVID-19 in the Detroit Lakes area. 

Two ways to avoid the spread of COVID-19 is to avoid crowds and distance yourself from others. Detroit Lakes is located in Greater MN and has thousands of acres of nature to get outdoors at a park or refuge. Our essential businesses and hotels are open for business, with curbside pick up available at many of them. 


Please take the time to educate yourself on routine precautions to make CDC fact based travel decisions and follow Minnesota Department of Health guidance and precautions. If you or someone you know is in the Detroit Lakes area and needs a COVID-19 test, they may receive it free by clicking Online E-visit at EssentiaHealth.org.
