Coming Labor Day weekend: Mine lake lodging

The annual Progress special section looks at True North Basecamp and Cuyuna Cove in Crosby offer temporary lodging to vacationers or out-of-towners staying overnight in the area.

The cabins at True North Basecamp were constructed to resemble miners' shacks used during the mining days on the Cuyuna Range.

Those seeking adventure in the Cuyuna Country State Recreation Area by bicycling or hiking, or adventurers looking for its lakes for boating, kayaking and paddle boarding, often stay overnight.

Find out more about some of the lodging rentals in the Crosby area and the interesting accommodations they can provide in an upcoming Progress Edition story.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.

Hi, I'm the Brainerd Dispatch. I started working a few days before Christmas in 1881 and became a daily paper two years later. I've gone through a lot of changes over the years, but what has never changed is my commitment to community and to local journalism. I've got an entire team of dedicated people who work night and day to make sure I go out every morning, whether in print, as an e-edition, via an app or with additional information at News, weather, sports — videos, photos, podcasts and social media — all covering stories from central Minnesota about your neighbors, your lakes, your communities, your challenges and your opportunities. It's all part of the effort to keep people connected and informed. And we couldn't do it without support.

The ground was broken for the Mississippi Landing Trailhead Park project in Brainerd in June. The planned greenspace with trails and pathways, a community amphitheater and an outdoor classroom with steps down along East River Road was previously a Tourist Park attracting thousands.
