August visit.

We're thinking of going to Detroit Lakes for a week in Aug. We used to go quite often but haven't been there in at least 10 years. We sometimes seemed to hit conditions (algae mainly) that made swimming not so great. Any recent experience with water conditions?

The "dog days" of summer. Water conditions right now are great. The later into the eason you go, the more likely there could be an algae problem. There are a ton of lakes around DL. If one is bad, switch lakes. There are a couple hundred lakes within an hour of DL.
