About Our Community

Long Prairie, Minnesota

Long Prairie is the retail, medical, business, and entertainment hub of Todd County - attracting workers and tourists from a regional area. The businesses and residents who call Long Prairie home enjoy these amenities, along with the ability to reach other cities quickly. Located at the crossroads of Hwy 71 and Hwy 27, residents have immediate access to Little Falls, Brainerd, Sauk Centre, and the Twin Cities (100 miles to the east).

Most people travel to the Central Minnesota area for outdoor recreation. There is no shortage of lakes and public access to enjoy during the Spring, Summer, and Fall seasons. In Long Prairie, Lake Charlotte’s swimming beach and boat launch is a popular destination for families and those in search of the perfect catch!

And, when winter settles in, many residents can be found ice-fishing, snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, or supporting the local sports teams.
