Mille Lacs

Mille Lacs was a destination for some of the earliest settlers in the state. The name Mille Lacs, which is French, means “thousand lakes”. The early pioneers were attracted to its bountiful harvest of many species of fish and the abundant wildlife that were attracted to the ecosystem.

Generations later, Minnesotans find the state’s second largest inland lake to be the perfect spot for relaxation, all sorts of water fun and, of course, the best of fishing, both summer and winter.

A true Minnesota explorer cannot consider their excursion complete without a Fall drive around the lake for some of the most brilliant views around.

The lake is surrounded by classic Minnesota resort towns such as Garrison, Isle, Onamia and Wahkon where you’ll want to sample the local fare and have the time of a lifetime. The towns offer a variety of unique shops and restaurants, distinctly Minnesotan, that help make your getaway memorable.

Grand Casino Mille Lacs in Onamia offers fun and great hospitality. You’ll want to visit the Mille Lacs Indian Museum and Trading post, Father Hennepin State Park or any of the other wonderfully scenic wildlife parks in the area.

For boating, swimming, canoeing, sailing and any other water sports, there is no other like Mille Lacs. We’ll see you soon.
