Friesland is an unincorporated community in Dell Grove Township, Pine County, Minnesota, United States.

The community is located between Hinckley and Sandstone; near the intersection of Pine County 61, Pine County 26, and the former Northern Pacific Railway (now the Willard Munger State Trail).


Located in the southeast corner of Dell Grove Township, Friesland is named after the northern province of the Netherlands. The community was originally called South Junction, as it was at the juncture of the Great Northern and Northern Pacific railroads. It operated a post office from 1896 to 1917.
