Rognlien Park  

Rognlien Park, often referred to as the “Jewel” of the Beltrami County Park system, is located on Grant Lake 7 miles west of Bemidji and 1 mile southwest of the City of Wilton. The park was acquired by the State of Minnesota in 1937 from M.A. Rognlien as a memorial to his son. In 2006 Beltrami County obtained the park from the State with the stipulation that the County continues to manage the site as a park. Rognlien is a day-use park providing a variety of family orientated recreational opportunities. Being located on Grant Lake, it offers quality fishing, boating, and swimming to those who choose to enjoy. The existing high quality sandy beach, public boat access with ramp and dock, and fishing pier lets you experience this outstanding water resource first hand. Picnic tables, fire rings, playground equipment, vault toilets, and an open shelter provide amenities for those who spend the day at Rognlien Park.
