The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has state lands for sale in Pine and Wadena counties. The five parcels for sale include rural and recreational properties.

State statute requires the DNR to conduct a public auction when parcels of land are available to sell. This summer’s online public auction is in partnership with MinnBid, the Minnesota Department of Administration’s Surplus Services online auction website. Bidding on properties requires registering for an account on the MinnBid site. Property will be available for bidding Wed., July 28, through 12 p.m. Friday, Aug. 6.

“The DNR is excited to partner with the Department of Administration for the first summer land auction,” said Andrea Johnson, DNR land sale coordinator. “The option for full online participation creates a more accessible and efficient way for more people to bid on state land.”

The public can visit to obtain property data sheets, terms and conditions of sale, and instructions for participating in the MinnBid system. Call 651-259-5432, 888-646-6367 or email with questions about a specific property.
