Boy River Minnesota Community Guide


Location:

Boy River, incorporated in 1922, is the smallest incorporated city in Cass County. Located on the Boy River between Big Boy Lake and Leech Lake, the river is a vital part of the community's history and future.

Transportation by land has always been limited. Mostly surrounded by swamps and dense forest, the community is located on a hill of rock and clay. The river was the easiest way to travel. Boats used to leave Walker and cross Leech Lake and travel up the river, they would then dock at the on southern edge of town.
