Mesaba Co-op Park is a cultural, historical and ecological gem nestled on the Iron Range near Hibbing, Minnesota. We are a member-owned land/facilities use co-op. Members and guests enjoy 240 acres of beautiful pine and birch woodlands that encircle the clear, spring fed waters of Lake North Star.
To preserve water quality, no gasoline motors are allowed on the lake. The Park and its members have made special efforts to maintain the quality and health of the forest and lake. Rowboats and canoes are available for rent by the hour or by the day; and boat launching is permitted.
The Park is comprised of 240 acres of woodlands surrounding the spring-fed waters of Lake North Star. Twelve campsites, five with electrical hook-ups, are set among beautiful woods. Four rustic cabins and a yurt provide sleeping facilities. A public restroom and shower are available. A wood-heated sauna is available for use by members.
The Park’s historic pavilion was constructed in the 1930’s by members. The upper level of the historic pavilion has a 50’ x 50’ dance hall with hardwood maple floor and a performance stage ideal for speakers, musicians, and presentations. The dance hall can seat 200 people. The pavilion’s lower level consists of a large kitchen and dining hall capable of seating 100. The pavilion is available for group rental during the summer season.
Mesaba Co-op Park’s facilities are well suited for use by groups. Arts workshops, community festivals, family gatherings, retreats, rallies, educational conferences, children’s camps, and wedding receptions have been held at the Park. You do not need to be a member to use the facilities, or to participate in activities. Mesaba Park could be the perfect meeting place for your group. Call to find out.
Cabins and campsites are available by the day, weekend, and week. Use of the dance hall, dining hall, are available by special request. Contact the Park manager for availability.
