Minnesota is fortunate to have miles upon miles of unspoiled wilderness and scenic lakes with great fishing. Some of the best outdoors experiences are to be had in the border lakes and Lake Vermilion area.
Though the Mississippi River cuts through Brainerd , the region is known as Brainerd Lakes because the Superior Lobe of the Laboradorian ice sheet was good enough to carve out 460 fishin' destinations within twenty-five miles of town. And where there's good fishin', the resorts will surely follow.
The third largest lake in Minnesota with 195 miles of shoreline and over 112,000 acres, Leech Lake is known far and wide as a premier walleye and musky lake.
Just looking through the place names—Bemidji, Chippewa National Forest, Itasca State Park, Lake Winnibigoshish, Lake of the Woods—is enough to send many reluctant city dwellers into a dreamy-eyed summertime reverie.
