Parks and Recreation

Northland Regional Sports Park

The Northland Regional Sports Park is situated on 360 acres in Eckles Township   providing recreational opportunities to connect people with the outdoors. At present, the park consists of three major physical areas: (A) Trailhead with parking, a picnic shelter and access to the Minnesota Grant-In-Aid and Beltrami County Trails System; (B) Rifle & Pistol area featuring 50,100 and 200 yard ranges with a range building and parking, operated by the Bemidji Area Shooters Association; (C) Shotgun Sports area including trap, skeet, 5-stand and sporting fields and a range building with parking, operated by the Bemidji Trap and Skeet Club (see site plan under the tab below). There are approximately 33 organizations that enjoy NRSP at this time and a wide variety of events and activities planned year around.

The park entrance is located on the west side of Highway 89, 3.1 miles north of Highway 2, about 6-miles northwest of Bemidji. The park concept dates back to 1990 and was adopted by Beltrami County Natural Resources Management and was included in the Beltrami County Recreational Facilities Plan in 2005. The access road was constructed in 2010, followed by shooting range construction 2015 and a Grand Opening in 2017. The 200 yard range and multi-use trailhead opens 2019. The Northland Regional Sports Park is the result of a unique public and private partnership and countless volunteer hours.
