According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 3.0 square miles (7.8 km²), of land.

U.S. Highway 2 and County 14 (Boundary Avenue) are two of the main routes in the city. Interstate Highway 35 is in close proximity to the city.

Proctor is located beside the Bayview Heights neighborhood of Duluth, with which it forms something of a contiguous community unit due to Bayview Heights' topographical separation (the hill) from adjacent West Duluth. It is bounded by school rival Hermantown to the north, Midway Township to the west, Duluth's Bayview Heights neighborhood to the east, and a mostly undeveloped area of Duluth (officially in the Riverside neighborhood) to the south.
