Thank you so much for continuing to support the live webcam.-- Chuck and Lois P., Mendota Heights, MN First started enjoying the webcams last winter and love the opportunity to enjoy "home" from Phoenix, AZ!I have always used post cards and personal photos to share the scene of the beginning of the Mighty Mississippi but now my students can enjoy the web cam and some live action. -- Bonnie K., Montrose, MN We vacation every summer at Mc Ardles Resort on Lake Winnie and drive through your beautiful town and have stopped various times for groceries, meals and gas. Enjoy checking on the weather and doing a "car count" on Main Street. Glad to know that someone besides me enjoys a moment away from my crazy day to 'pretend' I'm at the lake or in town.

Tonight, 4/20/16, is just beautiful looking out over the lake. Know then that I am just a week or so away from heading up to Evergreen for some walleye fishing. -- Jim, Germantown, TN A word of thanks and encouragement; Nice site and awesome cams (the self-refresh is the best man; cams seem to be high quality & always up too...)!

Been through Park Rapids several times myself en route from (here-/) I-94 to [Bemidji / Grand Rapids] and / or Loman (-20 mi w. Nice Christmas tree too and best part is your Star!

Plan on being up there in a couple weeks so its nice to see the lakes and what’s going on. I am wondering what entity is responsible for these, parks, etc. -- Rick W., Cedar Rapids, IA I love the PR webcam!!! We all grew up in Park Rapids, but no longer have any family living there.

Never the less, my husband and I spend time in Park Rapids every summer.

Miss the seasons so much and LOVE that I can see the winter and fall!

-- Pam B., Peoria, AZ I just wanted to say how much we enjoy your webcams.Is it possible to buy a light(s) in memory of someone like our Hospice does here? I am not a fan of the new position of the downtown webcam. The two at the lakes have been fun with boats, people, ducks, etc. However, the Red Bridge (which does not look red since the new bridge was installed) webcam lacks excitement. -- The Price Family, Altoona, IA It is on Sunday night, 12-7. Hopefully, it will melt tomorrow when the sun comes out.) I hope the sun provides the solution. -- Connie D., Nevis, MN The camera rotation is a welcomed sign - it's like the swallow return to San Juan Capistrano.We so enjoy watching everything that goes on in town on the webcam. -- Norma A., Acampo, CA Enjoy checking out the webcams and watching people at the Headwaters. Your streets & storefronts are gorgeously lined with floral arrangements! I want to commend you for creating such a pleasant town! -- Pat, Arlington Heights, IL So pretty to see the tree downtown and on Big Sand. We at the Delta Air Line OCC in Atlanta are thrilled. Our family spent 25 summers at the Holiday House cabin on Hinds Lake. Miss Fullers Tackle shop, Fick Drugstore and Dahl's Bakery.I was just up there enjoying Itasca State Park and Foxy's the last few days.-- Sandy B., Hapeville, GA My wife and I have been enjoying Evergreen Lodge on Big Sand lake for 25 or so years and were very pleased when all the web cams were installed.I stop for groceries every year on my way to Island Lake for our annual fishing trip. Visiting downtown PR has a been part of my families' frequent summer trips to the PR area for about the last 30 years.
