Chisago County Lodging Study

Published Date



University of Minnesota Extension Center for Community Vitality





The Chisago County EDA contracted with University of Minnesota Extension to conduct a market analysis in order to identify opportunities for local lodging start-ups and expansions. Chisago County is an exurban area located about 50 miles north of the Minneapolis-St. Paul Metropolitan Area. The market analysis examined both the existing tourist base (demand) and the current lodging stock (supply) in the county. Extension used a number of methods to conduct the market analysis, including (1) surveying accommodation operators, (2) inventorying accommodations operating in 2012 from multiple data sources, and (3) mapping zip code data from overnight guests.
