CHIPPEWA NATIONAL FOREST Route 3 Cass Lake, Minnesota 56633
Located in northern Minnesota, lies the Chippewa National Forest. The Forest boundary encompasses about 1.6 million acres, of which about 665,000 acres are managed by the USDA Forest Service. Aspen, birch, pines, balsam fir, and maples blanket the rolling uplands of the forest. In between, water is abundant, with over 700 lakes, 920 miles of rivers and streams, and 150,000 acres of wetlands. The forest landscape is a reminder of the glaciers that blanketed northern Minnesota some 10,000 years ago.
