Welcome to Bowlus Minnesota Sign

Location of Bowlus, Minnesota


With a population of 276, Bowlus is a small town with a big heart. Bowlus was platted on July 1, 1907 and was incorporated into a village in 1910. A station house and numerous stores were built, prospering from the rich trade from nearby farmers. Bowlus is located in Two Rivers Township in the south central part of Morrison County, approximately 25 miles north of St. Cloud and 15 miles south of Little Falls. Our small town boasts many amenities. The only town located next to the Soo Line Trail which welcomes bikers, walkers and rollerbladers in the summer and snowmobiles in the winter. We have a community center located in a park where you are able to rest, play and enjoy the center. We are located near the Mississippi River where you can get some fishing in, visit Blanchard Dam, go “cross rock” hunting and just have some good old fashioned fun. With an abundance of businesses, a community center, ball field, hockey rink and a park to welcome all ages, you will enjoy visiting our town over and over.

Recreation:

Soo Line Trail

Grease your chains, secure your helmets and hit what might soon be the longest stretch of paved highway available for free-spirited individuals looking to throw their inhibitions to the wind for an afternoon, a day or even a weekend of bicycling. This is truly one of the most beautiful bike trails around. The Soo Line Trail connects to the Lake Wobegon Trail in Stearns County where you will cross the river on a scenic covered bridge, one of the longest covered bridges in Minnesota! When you go through our town, stop by for some refreshments, lunch or dinner, check out our new community center, or just stop to shoot the breeze with the locals.

At Zappa Graphics and Design, we pride ourselves on these four core values We are not like most design firms. We work in a studio, not an office. We draw on cocktail napkins and have toys on our desks. Our design communicates messages, not just pretty pictures. We like s’mores and worldwide travel. We love chocolate and hate cubicles. We eat deadlines for breakfast and hate being late. We always keep our word. We see design in everything. We are Zappa Graphics and Design.
