Located in northern half of Minnesota, Lake Mille Lacs is approximately 90 miles north of the Twin Cities of St. Paul and Minneapolis. It's an easy drive north on Highway 169 to the many resorts and vacation areas around the lake.
Lake Mille Lacs is the 2nd largest lake in Minnesota. It covers 132,510 acres and 207 square miles. The maximum depth is 42' but most of the lake is in the 20' - 25' range. The north side of the lake is primarily mud flats and the south side of the lake is primarily gravel and rock bars. Although the lake is famous for its Walleye many other species of fish can be found in abundance.
In the summer, you'll find fishing and recreational crafts sharing the lake. In the winter, the lake freezes over with 2' - 4' ice depths. Small cities of ice fishing houses cover the lake with resort owners maintaining the roads leading to the houses. Snowmobilers can also be found traveling from resort to resort or making their way to an ice house.
There are two State Parks on or near the lake that have camping areas and that show off how beautiful Minnesota can be in all seasons. All photos on Seasons Of Mille Lacs have been taken on or near the lake.
