DNR to offer state lands at public auction

The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) will have 23 parcels of land in northeastern Minnesota for sale at a public auction scheduled for Friday, Oct. 25.

The sale will include parcels in Cook, Itasca, Lake, and St. Louis counties, some of which are lakeshore lots.

“This is a great opportunity for people looking for land in this very popular recreational destination,” said Jodi Dehn, DNR realty supervisor. “It’s not often that parcels in this area of the state become available for sale.” 
The auction starts at noon with registration at 11:30 a.m. at the Lake County Law Enforcement Center, main conference room, 613 Third Ave., Two Harbors.

The DNR sale will be immediately followed by a sale of tax-forfeited lands in Lake County.

Interested buyers are encouraged to visit the DNR’s land sale information page  prior to attending the sale. 

Property data sheets with full descriptions of the parcels offered for sale and selling prices will be posted on the website 30 days prior to the sale.
