October/November 2020 Edition

Ice is a component of Minnesota culture that isn’t just accepted—it’s celebrated. Our December/January 2021 issue is filled with long-lasting ice traditions, beginning with none other than the rough and tough game of pond hockey. Learn about pond hockey’s humble roots in Lake Country on page 24 or read it here.

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.
