Lake Country Journal is more than a regional, bimonthly magazine in the Brainerd lakes area. It’s a celebration of all things Up North.
We celebrate our culture, rich in history and diversity.
We celebrate our spirit of adventure on both land and water.
We celebrate our network of lake communities and the people who call this—the most beautiful place on earth—home, either year round, seasonally, or if only for a long weekend.
