Must-Visit Minnesota Lakes


Minnesota isn't called the Land of 10,000 Lakes for nothing. If you're looking for some lakeside relaxation this summer in your Glacier Ice House, Minnesota's the place to be. 

But with 10,000 lakes (actually more like 12,000!), it's tough to decide where you should spend your time off. Here are some of the top lakes in Minnesota, the must-visits that should be on any traveler's itinerary.

Cass Lake

Just outside Bemidji, which is a charming destination in and of itself, is Cass Lake. With abundance forests along its coastline, the lake is a scenic place for a day of rest and recreation. There's even a waterfront park with a giant Paul Bunyan and Babe the Blue Ox statues, which makes for a fun picture. The lake is perfect for watersports and swimming. With Bemidji so close by, you've got more options than most lakes if you're looking for fun activities. After you're done at the lake for the day, head into town and grab a bite to eat, drink a local brew, and do some shopping.

Lake Superior

Lake Superior certainly isn't obscure, but parts of it are due to its big size. The North Shore region is especially beautiful and worthy of a visit. Comprising nearly 150 miles of Lake Superior's coast, the North Shore is packed with rocky beaches, old growth forests, waterfalls, and even lighthouses. The dramatic coastline is perfect for sightseeing all along its length, so expect to spend at least a week there if you want to get your fill.

Lake Winnibigoshish

Most people know Lake Winnibigoshish as just Lake Winnie. If you said it by its proper name each time, you'd spend all your time talking about the lake and never get around to enjoying it! Lake Winnie is known for being one of the best summer fishing spots in the state; it's teeming with a huge walleye population, so fishermen have plenty of opportunities to pull in a great catch. It's remote too, located amid 1.6 million acres of undeveloped national forest.
