This lake has the same name as my mother's father's family. I was just curious as to how the lake got the name of Rikansrud? My grandfather was Arthur Rikansrud, and he had a Uncle named Sven Rikansrud that lived in Fosston, MN. Is that town near the lake? Says Elise Nelson
Why not camp at Island Lake Resort since you're here at Rikansrud Lake, and during your journey here you'll meet some folks from Lengby for sure. Super 8 Fosston is a great site to
get some rest; in the neighborhood of Rikansrud Lake you stumble on a golf course called Fosston Golf Club. This lake is so wonderful.
