Community Profiles

Deer River sits along U.S. Hwy. 2 between Grand Rapids and Bemidji and serves as a gateway to boundless forests and scenic lakes. It has a strong forestry industry and is home to the world’s largest wild rice festival. Thanks to its substantial Native American population, it is one of the most diverse communities in northern Minnesota.
