Where can you see woodlands, wetlands and prairies in Elk River, Minnesota?

The prairie ends just south of Elk River, and the town is surrounded by a blanket of peaceful woodlands. Abundant elk herds and the serene landscape made this desirable territory for both the Dakota and Ojibwe tribes, the first known residents of the area, who lived in the area as early as the 1770s.

In 1848, French-Canadian fur trader David Frederic Faribault established a trading post along the Red River Trail, near the junction of the Mississippi River and Elk River. Settlers arrived to seek work in lumbering, and sawmills sprang up around the newly dammed Elk River, which created Lake Orono.

Today, one of the best ways to enjoy all the natural beauty is to cruise down one of the rivers in a canoe or do some fishing at Lake Orono. Although the lake is fairly shallow, you'll find numerous fish species, including smallmouth bass, walleyes, and crappies. Woodland Trails Regional Park also offers excellent birding and serene waterside trails. This expansive park is beautiful in all seasons, but it's especially attractive in the winter. The beautiful countryside is perfect for sledding, snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, ice hockey, and just playing in the snow.

If you'd like to spend time outdoors while reconnecting with Elk River's agricultural past, drive over to the Oliver H. Kelley Farm. You can see how a modern farm runs at this facility, but you can also visit an 1860s-era “living history” farm. Here, you can watch farm workers in period dress taking care of livestock, and kids can help feed the chickens and lend a hand at picking (and eating) the produce. Pack a picnic, visit the gift shop, and enjoy the beautiful landscape after your tour.

Friendly faces and a Midwestern welcome await you in Elk River, Minnesota — your destination for a country getaway near the Twin Cities.
