Things to do - general

If you would like to experience the land of 10,000 lakes then Crosslake, MN, is the destination for you. Fishing, boating, cross-country skiing and snowmobiling are just a few of the many outdoor activities the Crosslake area has to offer. As the gateway to the Whitefish Chain of lakes you might come to think that this is where MN got it’s famous tag as the Land of 10,000 lakes. Originally Crosslake was a logging community. In 1836 the creation of Pine River Dam began and the Whitefish Chain of lakes were connected to facilitate easier transportation of logs from one area to the next. Logging came to an end in 1912 and quickly Crosslake began its trend of becoming a premier vacation destination. Resorts grew of old logging camps and the population of loggers transitioned into families, families of which have kept their roots in the area for many generations. Crosslake officially became a city in 1972 and has never looked back.

Whatever your fancy; snow and ice or water and beaches, your family will have no shortage of activities to choose from. Big lakes and small lakes make up the Whitefish chain and include: Bertha, Clamshell, Island, Cross, Daggett, Arrowhead, Big Trout, Loon, Little Pine, Lower Whitefish, Middle Whitefish, Pig, Upper and Lower Hay, Rush and Upper Whitefish. The area boasts some of the best outdoor festivals such as Crosslake days in August and Winterfest in January.
