There are three main routes from the south that lead into Itasca County: Highway 169 through Aitkin and Hill City; Highway 6 through Emily and Remer; or Highway 2 through Moose Lake and Floodwood. No matter which direction you drive from the Twin Cities, Grand Rapids will be the first major community you come across. Whether you are heading further up the road to a more remote area of the region, or if you want to make this the end of your trip, Grand Rapids will have most all the amenities you will need for any length of stay.
Many of those who live on lakes in the Itasca County Area year-round make their homes on those water bodies within a few miles from the city. There are a few small ones like McKinney, Hale, Blandin Reservoir, and Ice Lake right in the midst of the residential community itself with attractive homes along their shores. But those who prefer a little more elbow room on the water head a few miles out of town on premier lakes like Prairie, Sugar, Bass, Pokegama, or the Mississippi River.
The Pokegama Lake Chain consists of Lake Pokegama and several smaller lakes along the Mississippi River like Little Jay Gould, Jay Gould and Blackwater Lake. You can also follow the river for many miles to the west if you like long boat rides. The lake homes along the chain range from some with price tags over $1,000,000 to small cabins in the $200,000s. Other lakes close to Grand Rapids will have a variety of lakefront homes and cabins generally priced from the low $200,000s to the $400,000s.
