Beautiful Vistas in Itasca County

It does not matter where you are – there is a perfect snapshot waiting for you in every corner of Itasca county.  Take your camera or cell phone out with you on every one of your expeditions to make sure that you are prepared if the perfect photo opportunity appears.

Remember: there’s no such thing as a bad photo, just the photo that was never taken.

Snap a photo for the contest if:

You’re out on the lakes and reel in The Big One
You’re out on the lakes and reel in the smallest fish you’ve ever seen
You’re on a family hike in the perfect nature setting
You’re participating in one of our great area events
You have found the best bait ‘n tackle shop in the area

The Grand Rapids area has always been one of the most picturesque regions of Minnesota.  We are so excited to see what the locals and visitors are able to find when they’re in Minnesota’s Nature.

Get your photography skills ready!

We would not be able to host this great photo contest without help from our amazing sponsors.
