Crane Lake Minnesota Community Guide


Location:
Because of its unique location near the Canadian border, this end-of-the-road community serves as an important access to the Crane Lake chain of lakes. Access to Crane Lake is via County Highway 23. Orr, which is the closest full-service community to Crane Lake, is 30 miles away. Crane Lake students travel to Orr to attend school. The nearest medical facility is 50 miles away in Cook.

Location and abundant access to recreational areas establishes the community of Crane Lake as a popular short-term vacation destination. Many people visit and use the local lodging facilities for a few days to a few weeks at a time. Thousands of visitors also use the community as a point of departure for trips into the adjacent recreational areas of the Boundary Water Canoe Area Wilderness, Quetico Provincial Park and Voyageurs National Park. While most of the visitors come during the summer months, there is a growing demand in winter because of the popularity of outdoor winter sports.
