Mille Lacs Community

("grand lake" in Ojibwe).

At 132,500 acres (536 km²), Mille Lacs is Minnesota's second-largest inland lake and one of its premiere vacation destinations. It is an area abundant with natural beauty and outdoor and recreational opportunities. It is a growing area; attracting vacationers, summer homebuyers and residents who want to take advantage of the high quality of life the area has to offer.

Seasonally, the lake area is home to those who enjoy boating, fishing, bike trails, swimming, canoeing and kayaking, walking and hiking, and two of the most beautiful state parks in the state. When the countryside turns white with snow, cross country skiing, snowmobiling, ice fishing, and skating are activities the locals look forward to.

Tucked in between those two seasons is a verdant, green Spring and a lush, cozy Fall.

Visitors and residents can experience a true “up-north” Minnesota experience, yet are still within two hours of the Twin Cities — a major urban center naturally recognized for its arts and entertainment, many cultural activities, and dining.
