Aitkin County

Aitkin County is strategically located between the northern Minnesota urban centers of Brainerd, Grand Rapids, and Duluth. Its largest industries are tourism, forest products, and agriculture, but there is a growing base of metal fabrication and other manufacturing.
 
The county has excellent public schools, well-developed transportation systems, and modern community health care facilities. Long famous for its recreational assets, it boasts an abundance of trails and lakes, including Mille Lacs, one of Minnesota's most popular and prolific fishing destinations. The Mississippi River runs through the county seat.
