Welcome to the Cuyuna Lakes

We invite you to join us in the Cuyuna Lakes — home to the cities of Bay Lake, Crosby, Cuyuna, Deerwood, Emily, Ironton, Riverton and Trommald. Our unique communities o er small town charm nestled in the heart of lake country. We are excited to welcome you as our guest.

What makes the Cuyuna Lakes so unique? Born from a once burgeoning ore and taconite mining operation, the Cuyuna Iron Range produced over a 100 million tons of high-manganese ore during WWI and WWII. The range was also home to the Scorpion Snowmobile company, which produced and sold its famous sleds in the Crosby area. When both industries stopped production in the 1980s, the area became unsure of what the future would bring. Enter the Cuyuna Country State Recreational Area. The abandoned mining pits were reclaimed by nature, forming miles of crystal-clear lakes. Perfect for kayaking, paddle boarding, swimming and fishing, these pristine bodies of water are something special, and became a favorite destination for the local crowd. Then, with the foresight of several area residents, the mountainous landscape that was created from mining was transformed into globally recognized mountain biking and hiking trail systems that are utilized year-round, making the Cuyuna Lakes a perfect destination for outdoor adventure.

As the recreational area has grown, so have our business communities. The Cuyuna Lakes has a vibrant entertainment scene, with several award-winning restaurants, co ee shops, a brewery, specialty gift shops and boutiques lining our main streets. There is truly something for everyone to enjoy in the Cuyuna Lakes.

The main purpose of the project is to enhance the living experience of the residents and to create a more efficient work environment for staff.

About Our Waters

The best kept secret in Minnesota is Cuyuna Country. Our pristine lakes provide excellent fishing for a large variety of species, as well as unique angling opportunities for trout and trophy pike.


Serpent Lake is a beautiful body of clear, fresh water covering 1,116 acres and is approximately 65 feet deep at its deepest point. Around 9-plus miles of shoreline amid birch, pine, oak, and other towering trees. More than 250 homes and cabins hug its meandering shoreline. Located between the cities of Crosby (on its western end) and Deerwood (on the east), Serpent is home to walleye, northern pike, smallmouth and largemouth bass, crappies, and other fish which attract anglers year-round. At the lake’s largest public access point, Crosby Memorial Park, is a large, colorful serpent statue named Kahnah’bek (the Ojibwa name for Serpent). It measures 20 feet high and 25 feet long and weighs 2,500 pounds. There are rumors that the lake’s namesake is because the waters are inhabited by a mythical sea serpent, but a more likely explanation is the shape of the lake.


The mine lakes are famous for trout. But, if they are not cooperating, try fishing for northern pike. Submerged stands

of timber shelter trophy pike, some pushing 30 pounds. The sunken trees also provide cover for hungry small and largemouth bass. Spinner baits are a great choice because the water does not have a lot of weeds and the bait can be worked through the stands of trees and stumps. A panfish supper awaits if you stay near the underwater trees during low light. Vertically jig in depths under 30 feet around flooded timber and pull up quickly to keep the fish out of trouble.


Tired of fishing amidst jet skiers and power boats? Experience the solitude on our natural lakes where walleye, northern and largemouth bass are the main targets. Don’t be surprised if you stumble upon slab crappies or big bluegills. Venture to larger waters for that trophy muskie. Launch your boat at the many public access points. If you are looking for peace and quiet, bring a canoe or kayak and relax on one of the many small lakes with limited access. Grab a map, locate a back road, and find your own “honey hole” on one of our tranquil lakes.


The nearby Mississippi River, with excellent populations of walleye and smallmouth bass, is navigable under normal conditions with a motorized boat, but some prefer to float it in a canoe or kayak. The stretch from Aitkin to Merrifield is both beautiful and rewarding.

Catfish populations are booming, and muskies are present here with trophycaliber fish available. Whether boating, floating or fly fishing, check with OarsN-Mine bait and tackle shop in Crosby for lake and river conditions and the local fishing secrets.

Historic Main Street Crosby has seen a huge transformation in the last several years. Along with the reconstruction of Highway 210, the Cuyuna Lakes Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with The Iron Range Resources and Rehabilitation Board, was able to successfully complete the Music On Main project in late 2021. With a generous grant from IRRRB of $16,500 to the Cuyuna Lakes Chamber along with matching funds raised by the Chamber’s Downtown Committee, a total investment of $33,000 was used to purchase and install a state-of-the-art speaker system in Crosby’s main business district. Visitors to Main Street can enjoy music year-round that provides a lively soundtrack as they shop, eat, drink and enjoy all Crosby has to offer. It also provides seasonal fun, with carols played throughout the Christmas season, which adds to Crosby’s renowned hometown feel.


Another great event hosted in the CrosbyIronton area, Music in the Park is hosted every second and fourth Thursday in the months of June, July and August in Crosby’s Memorial Park. A free community event made possible through a generous grant from the Five Wings Art Council and donations from area businesses through the Cuyuna Lakes Chamber, Music in the Park hosts local music artists as they perform a three-hour concert for everyone to attend.

Nestled on the shores of Serpent Lake, Crosby Memorial Park’s concert stage offers a perfect atmosphere for adults and families alike to bring along a chair and relax on a summer night. With local vendors in attendance each week, you can treat yourself to a delish food truck fair, a sweet treat or even a massage while in attendance.


The Soo Line Depot was built in 1910. It was part of a 1908-1910 project to build a rail line from Superior, Wisconsin, to Thief River Falls, Minnesota, with a branch (Crosby) to the Cuyuna Iron Range. It is now the home of the Soo Line Depot Museum which is filled with artifacts, photos and documents telling the stories of everyday life and historical events on the Cuyuna Iron Range. The museum features information and pictures pertaining to

the Mining History in the Cuyuna Range, including the Milford Mine disaster, Minnesota’s largest mining disaster. There is also a life-sized replica of the capsule that Dr. David Simons rode to the stratosphere. There is also 100-year-old tools from logging and mining and photos of the miners and mines that were so plentiful in this region, and built what has now become the Cuyuna Lakes area. Named in “Ripley’s Believe It or Not” as the only depot in the world where the trains came in but never went past.

and osprey are often spotted. Loons may surface nearby. Beach areas provide a place to stretch or enjoy a picnic. Maps showing parking, boat, and carry-in access points, campsites and scenic views are available at trailheads and the Cuyuna Lakes Chamber office in Deerwood. Don’t have a paddle

board or kayak to enjoy one of the area lakes, stop by Cuyuna Outfitters in Crosby. They offer rentals on outdoor equipment for adventures of all sizes! They even offer a glass bottom kayak option, which offers a unique experience as you glide across the crystal clear mine lakes.

Located just outside of Deerwood on Hwy 210, this composite course carved out of the Northern Minnesota woods, requires an accurate driver, skill in handling the uneven uphill, downhill, and side hill lies, and a first class game to master the challenging putting surfaces here at Cuyuna. Offering resort quality golf without the resort prices, Cuyuna Rolling Hills offers an outstanding golfing experience with affordable greens and cart fees. They are celebrating their 100 year anniversary this year!

The Cuyuna Range is along The Great River Road National Scenic Byway that follows the course of the Mississippi River for 3,000 miles from northern Minnesota to the Gulf of Mexico. The Great River Road is a well-marked series of different roads and highways that roughly follow the winding course of the Mississippi River. Travelers will find white signs displaying a green pilot’s wheel logo. The symbol denotes which roads are part of the designated route that was selected for its natural, cultural, historical, recreational and scenic properties. All along the Great River Road, visitors find interesting things to see and do, including many river-related attractions and designated interpretive centers. The Cuyuna Range is no exception. Travelers can drive a short portion of the byway to experience some of the numerous amenities the area must offer. Learn more at www.

Air Force Major Dr. David Simons rose above the earth 101,516 feet to become the first successful manned space flight in history. Dr. Simons provided the scientific research that would one day enable Neil Armstrong to step onto the surface of the moon and declare, “One small step for man; one giant leap for mankind.”


In 1959, the communities of Crosby and Ironton were in decline, still reeling after losing hundreds of iron ore mining jobs. Three men had come together, not to build


a snowmobile powerhouse, but to simply survive. Incorporated in 1959, Trail-ASled, Inc. quickly grew to elite status among snowmobile manufacturers during the 1960s when rising public demand for these machines was creating an entirely new industry. Along the way, Trail-A-Sled,

Joseph Ruttger began a century-plus tradition when he opened the resort on the shores of Bay Lake in 1898. The resort began humbly when Joseph and his wife Josephine opened their Bay Lake home to weary travelers and fishermen and shared a home-cooked meal. Enough people enjoyed Josephine’s food that word spread, and soon people were coming from far and wide to enjoy the beauty and relaxation of Minnesota’s Lake Country, a nice meal and Ruttger’s legendary hospitality. This foundation has grown to be what is now known as Ruttger’s Bay Lake Resort, which has become a mainstay for families to enjoy for over a century. Ruttger’s now includes a full lodge with indoor and outdoor pools, two renowned dining experiences, Jack’s 18, a championship 18-hole golf course, tennis and pickleball courts, retail shops and a full service salon, all on the gorgeous shores of Bay Lake.

There are several houses of worship in the area. Catholic, Lutheran, Baptist, Methodist as well as non-ecumenical churches are available. Grocery and liquor stores, fuel stations, antique and retail shops, as well as restaurants, coffee shops, breweries, cocktail lounges and gift shops offer everything families need.

My kids had made the decision to move to the Cuyuna Lakes Area for a change of pace from the big city. Seeing my children and grandchildren absolutely enjoying all the beautiful lakes and amenities the area has to offer I made the decision to also make the move and now we get to enjoy them as a family.
