Park Rapids area things to do

The Park Rapids area offers lots of fun and family-friendly things to do while you vacation with us at Brookside! 

One of the most popular and well-known destinations in the area is Itasca State Park. Home to the headwaters of the Mississippi River and also over 20 miles of paved bike trails – this is a popular destination. 

Our charming downtown area provides unique, small-shop shopping opportunities, great restaurants (some even offering local foods!), and that old-fashioned feeling of small town life. For a live shot of what is happening on Main Street – check out the live webcam

Dorset is another favorite destination and is known as the “Restaurant Capital of the World”! Home to both restaurants and shopping, this little “town” is a great place to explore.
