Welcome to the City of East Grand Forks!
Located where the Red River of the North and Red Lake River meet, we offer recreational opportunities along the Greenway and a wide variety of restaurants where you can enjoy a great meal. You can shop for gear for your next outdoor adventure, or for whatever else you may want or need. The city is easy to get to from all directions, including along Highway 220 North, Highway 2 East and West, DeMers Ave, Business Highway 2, and Highway 220 South.
If you enjoy camping, the Red River State Recreation Area campground is open from early May until mid-October. It is close to all the action, including more than 40 miles of recreational trails, Sherlock Park, and great fishing spots on the two rivers. Or maybe you would rather take in a movie or enjoy a meal on a raining evening, or take a plunge in our newly renovated public pool on a hot summer day.
East Grand Forks not only has excellent recreational opportunities, but also is a well rounded community that has something for everyone. Our schools, churches, and other community organizations make this a great place to live. Our city has seen significant population growth in recent years, and we still have plenty of room for more. We have residential lots ready for you to build on, and many great employers in our region.
Now that you've been to our website, we hope that you will come in person to experience all that East Grand Forks has to offer.
See you soon,
Mayor Steve Gander
