Hoyt Lakes Minnesota Community Guide


Location:

Welcome to Hoyt Lakes Minnesota

Location of Hoyt Lakes, Minnesota


The City of about 1,872 people is a small, quiet and very safe community where everyone knows everyone. We have an excellent police force, volunteer fire department and a recreation department that offers year-round activities. There are hiking/biking trails, a swimming beach, four baseball fields, a hockey arena, tennis courts, and basketball hoops - in short, every amenity possible to make your stay enjoyable! We have the Country Inn of Hoyt Lakes that offers comfort and ease, if that is your desire.

Our municipal camp ground, Fisherman's Point, is hailed as one of the best in the state. It provides full amenities, as well as some primitive camping opportunities. Every campsite has been designed with a woodsy atmosphere and as much privacy as you can possible want! And, the fishing is GREAT. We're also very proud of our 9-hole golf course which gives the average golfer quite a challenge. And, speaking of challenges, Hoyt Lakes is located just 15 miles from Giant's Ridge Golf and Ski Resort.

Hoyt Lakes is only a 50-minute drive from Lake Superior's North Shore via the Lake Superior National Forest Scenic Byway (County Highway 11) that takes you right through the beautiful Superior National Forest. This highway allows easy access to some of Minnesota' most spectacular scenery, especially in the Fall when the colors are beyond belief!

Mesabi Trail

The Taconite State Trail stretches 165 miles from Grand Rapids to Ely and intersects with the Arrowhead State Trail just west of Lake Vermillion. Portions are paved for biking and in-line skating. The remainder of the natural surface trail is used primarily for snowmobiling in the winter. The trail goes through a few areas that have standing water in the summer, however portions of the trail are suitable for horseback riding, hiking, and mountain biking.

The Taconite Trail winds through forests of birch and aspen intertwined with pine, leading the visitor by many isolated lakes and streams. From Grand Rapids heading north, you see the impact of the taconite and iron mining industry. The northern portion of the trail terrain is rolling and tree covered as it winds through state and national forest land.

Eight trail waysides and picnic facilities offer scenic vistas of the hills, lakes and rivers of this area. The trail also links three state parks: Bear Head Lake, Soudan Underground Mine, and McCarthy Beach. The landscape in and around Bear Head Lake State Park is very rolling and rocky.
