Crow Wing County land sale scheduled May 16

Crow Wing County will hold a public land sale of tax-forfeited property at 10 a.m. Friday, May 16, in the Land Services Building at 322 Laurel St., Brainerd, where 96 tracts of land valued at more than $1.5 million will be offered for sale at public auction.

Properties are located throughout Crow Wing County from the Mille Lacs Lake area in Garrison to Ideal Township, with many lots in the Brainerd and Baxter area.

New this year, the Land Services Department has developed an interactive map application to view and search for tax-forfeited property available for sale. This application provides links to detailed information about location, size and appraised value for all 96 tracts offered at auction.

The map can be found on the Land Services webpage at under “land sale.” Interested buyers may also contact Land Services staff at 218-824-1115 or for more information.

Additionally, more than 200 properties offered for auction in prior years that remain unsold are available for direct purchase any time over-the-counter.

Information on how to purchase these properties is available by contacting the Land Services Department or by visiting the land sale web page.

“These tax-forfeited properties represent an excellent opportunity for the public to purchase their piece of the ‘northwoods’ at a reasonable rate,” said Jake Frie, natural resource manager. “Whether people are interested in sites for building, seasonal use or recreation, there are a variety of tracts available for purchase in Crow Wing County.”
