Blackduck is a great place to live, and a great place to grow up! Not only are the schools, parks and healthcare facilities outstanding, but the home of your dreams may be much easier to afford than in a bigger city.


Get Outside

With the Continental Divide located just outside Blackduck city limits, many people consider the town to be located at the top of the world. The waters north of the divide flow into Canada's Hudson Bay, while waters south flow to the Gulf of the Mexico. The city is in the center of a unique recreational area abounding with picturesque attractions.

There is something for everyone in Blackduck and the surrounding areas during all four of Minnesota's beautiful seasons. Area lakes and parks/trails offer many recreational activities whether you hike, bike, hunt, fish, camp, snowmobile, ski and more.

Blackduck families enjoy year-round entertainment for all ages. Whether that be participating in school sports or cheering them on, being apart of adult or youth clubs and organizations, or partaking in recreational activities ranging from picking strawberries and blueberries, taking in a movie, or watching the latest play.
