Where are public lands in Carlton County located?

The best way to identify county-owned, Tax-forfeited and Memorial Forest lands is to consult a Carlton County plat book. 2017 plat books are available for purchase at the Courthouse in Carlton, MN or at the Carlton County Extension Office

Changes in ownership are ongoing. To obtain current ownership information, check with the Carlton County Auditor’s Office.

Our GIS Department has online mapping application services which allow you to search by ownership, address, parcel identification number, etc.
