Green Lake (800+ acres) is the largest lake in Isanti County. You can see about 90% of it from our shore. It's big enough for dozens of boaters to do their thing (ski, fish, sail, jet ski) while not disturbing other boats on the lake or swimmers near shore. Our long dock provides a protected swim/play area. Green Lake is not busy except July 4th & walleye fishing opener weekend. Walleye are stocked every other year. Largemouth Bass, Northern, Crappie & Sunnie fishing is self sustaining and very good. Crappie, Sunnie & Perch are easy to catch with worms from our dock. You can learn more about the lake at the MN DNR website. A bait shop is 5 minutes away.
Our lake & swimming area has a dark sand bottom with no rocks or muck. Swim out 150 feet & touch the lake bottom in about 6 feet of water.
Adults can use our canoe. Bring your boat & tie it inside the 'L' of our sturdy 70 foot aluminum dock. Park your boat trailer in our back yard. The public access has a concrete boat ramp/landing, & a large parking lot.
