Lake Mille Lacs is a beautiful display of all that Minnesota has to offer. Great fishing both summer and winter, gorgeous views, beaches, great resorts and restaurants (Red Door Resort and Motel and their WayPointe Cafe is excellent on north Mille Lacs and closest to Brainerd), and overall, a must see when visiting the Brainerd area. Few lakes offer the incredible scenery and quality outdoor experience of Lake Mille Lacs. Fished here a number of times and it never disappoints!

We cruised out into the depths (ha ha the deepest part of the lake is less than 20feet-maybe less than 12feet?) of Wahkon bay where we drifted among charming little islands (some with buildings some without), clear waters, and mostly sunny skies. There were some speed boats and skiers but it's such a big lake (we never even got out of the bay) that it didn't interfere with our luxury at all. love it.

lots of lake area but nothing to do unless you have a boat. Drove around half the lake and hardly ANY beach area or public places to enter the lake for swimming or sitting on the shore.

I spent a weekend fishing here with a friend who had a cabin on the lake. I was here in October, so the morning were cold on the lake, but once the sun came up it was warm. We spent our time catching Walleye. I had never been Walleye fishing, but I had a great time a caught a few Walleye. The lake is huge.
