largest metro lakes?

7 posts in this topic

What are the top 10 largest metro lakes? How do I look this up? I tried google but didn't find anything.

I would assume Minnetonka is number 1 by far... but is White Bear Lake number 2? What is 3? etc..

Anyone know a website?

My guess is Waconia for number two, then White Bear. Anybody for a stab at number four?

You guys are right so far,

1) Minnetonka 14,004 acres

2) Waconia 2996 acres

3) White Bear 2416 acres

4) Forest 2251 acres

5) Big Marine 1756 acres

6) Green Lake (Chisago)1714 Acres

7) Bald Eagle 1268.50 acres

8) Coon Lake 1259.20

9) Prior Lake 1154 Acres (combining upper and lower)

10) Medicine 886 acres?????

This is just a list made up by looking at a map and then finding how many acres they are according to the DNR website. The "Metro" area is a loose term and i just went by what I myself consider the metro.

if your combining them..

Chisao & South Lindstrom 873+450=1323

North&South Center Lakes 835+725=1550

Otherwise I checked the Twin Cities Fishing Map Guide and those are the largest...

      That's what I have been reading after more research I will probably replace my thermal with one when the time comes but for now I am looking for a smaller lighter house I can use when by myself. Better than canvas craft is saying something!

      I don't have much skin in the game here.  I take 2 trips a year to Vermilion and absolutely love the lake, area and in particular the West side.  Without question, our goal is to own a property on this lake for retirement.    People hate change.  Simply don't go if you don't like the prices or the new owners.  The restaurant/bar business is a bitch so I say kudos for trying something different.  With any business, previous owners don't let go of gold mines so there was a reason it was for sale.     I'll be a patron the few weeks I'm up there.  If I don't like it, I won't go back.  Premium prices demand premium quality and service.  I hope they succeed.

      Don't believe I've made one single point actually. I've just been honest. Very rare thing on the internet. I'm sure you understand that.
