Welcome to the ultimate adventurer’s paradise. There’s no shortage of things to do in Cook County, Minnesota. With so much to do and see, it can be a challenge to fit everything into a single Gunflint Trail and North Shore vacation. It’s no surprise that we often see visitors coming back year after year just to experience it all. Some vacationers love to go wherever the wind takes them. They wake up in the morning and let the day unfold. For many others, planning a vacation is at least half the fun. Try out our Trip Planner to organize your stay with us. You’ll discover the possibilities for outdoor adventures are just the tip of the iceberg.

Don’t forget to check out our four unique communities of Lutsen-Tofte-Schroeder, Grand Marais, Gunflint Trail and Grand Portage. Each community has its own wide variety of dining and lodging options available so there’s always an option that will fit your travel style.

And remember, nobody knows Cook County quite like a local. It’s our job to be helpful and we love it. Be sure to contact us if you have any questions about where to stay, upcoming events or things to do in our wonderful Cook County communities.
