Like a lot of towns in Northern Minnesota, Bigfork was created by loggers fur traders and trappers. its largest boom was due to the major logging done in the early 20th century. This includes the CC camps of the Roosevelt Era and local mills, including Rajala Mill Co. and Potlach, just to name a few who helped develop this area. More recently, it has been somewhat of a hub for Tourism activities due to the many lakes and lodges in the area. Fishing in the summer is the main attraction - Hunting in the Fall - Snowmobiling in the winter - And a breathtaking natural beauty in the spring. The last 30 years has shown a stady increase in this industry.
