Alexandria, Minnesota Lakes & Marinas
When someone dubbed Minnesota “Land of a Thousand Lakes,” they must have been exploring the Alexandria Lakes Area. Many thousands of years ago, massive glaciers creped down the Minnesota landscape leaving behind a landscape dotted with thousands of lakes and fertile grasslands. Forests of hardwood trees and conifers filled the land giving birth to the inspiring views and tranquil landscapes that can and should be enjoyed by all today.
With over 15,000 lakes in Minnesota, the Alexandria Lake Area is home to some of the finest lakes that the state has to offer. Some are huge bodies of water that once featured small packet boats and paddle wheelers to portage travelers from shore to shore and around the perimeters. Small lakes offer a quieter retreat while keeping up the reputation of the area for great fishing.
