Golden Lake 

Golden Lake is located in northern Steele County, just 45 minutes from Grand Forks.  It is home to a seasonal resort and campground offering a public beach, playground, boat launch, convenience store, restaurant, and entertainment. Golden Lake is stocked with pike, walleye, and perch. The campground offers RV spaces with electricity and sewer, along with space for tents. There are access points on both the east and west sides of the lake, and it is a very popular destination for vacationers throughout a 100-mile radius. Beginning fall of 2018 is very exciting as the campground area is being completely renovated, with completion early spring of 2019. We invite you to come camp at Golden Lake Acres!

For reservations, camping and restaurant information, contact the resort at 701-543-4025 or call Jake Dickson at 218-779-4652.

Ashtabula II Wind Farm (Luverne Wind Farm)

This newly constructed wind farm is located in southern Steele and Griggs counties. It contains 113 wind turbines and can produce a maximum of 169.5 MW of energy. The Luverne Wind Farm is split into two portions: the 49.5 MW North Field, and the 120 MW South Field. Construction commenced on both wind farms in the summer of 2009. It was the first locally-owned wind farm and shows what a community can accomplish when the drive for success is strong.
