Welcome to the Ideal Township website

Surrounding the beautiful Whitefish Chain of Lakes, Ideal Township is located in the northwest corner of Crow Wing County, Minnesota. Communities neighboring Ideal Township include the cities of Cross Lake, Manhattan Beach, and Fifty Lakes to the east and northeast, and the cities of Breezy Point, Jenkins and Pequot Lakes to the south and southwest.

A variety of opportunities exist within the Township for those who desire a place to call home, or a place to get away from the traffic, noise, and bustle of urban living to enjoy the rural way of life. Because of this highly attractive lifestyle, Ideal Township and much of the Crow Wing County area is experiencing tremendous growth and development resulting in increasing demands on the community and a buffet of new community challenges.

Ideal Township Town HallThe Ideal Township Board of Supervisors, the Township staff, and the Township residents are proud of Ideal Township's one hundred year history and its quality of life. Working together, we can address the challenges and demands of the area's growth, and help to insure that Ideal Township is improved and preserved for future generations.

If you are a visitor, we welcome you to enjoy our lakes, parks, and recreational opportunities. If you are a resident - seasonal or year-round - we encourage you to use this website to stay informed of the Township's progress and initiatives. Feel free to send your comments to the Board and attend our monthly meetings.

This website is a work in progress with the goal of helping residents stay informed and involved. Ideal Township has a long tradition of dedicated residents and that is a big part of what makes this area truly “Ideal”.

Thank you.
