Long Lake is the flagship of the Aitkin County Park System
Long Lake is Aitkin County owned and managed by the Aitkin County Land Department. As an enterprise within the Aitkin County Land Department, we are surrounded with resources and provide resources back to our community. Long Lake Conservation Center is open to the public with miles of hiking trails, groomed cross country ski trails, bog board walks, and multiple ecosystems to explore. Plus, we host monthly workshops for our community to connect with nature and discover new skills and knowledge. Located in the heart of Aitkin County between McGregor and Aitkin, McGrath and Jacobsen; Long Lake is truly a place to recreate, explore, continuously learn, and appreciate nature.
