Northview Bank Lends in Mille Lacs County
Mille Lacs County borders the southern edge of the famous Mille Lacs Lake and runs south all the way to Princeton. Highway 169 runs north/south through the middle of the county. Notable towns in the county include Bock, Foreston, Isle, Milaca, Onamia, Pease, Princeton, and Wahkon.
Isle is a quaint resort town on the southeast end of Mille Lacs Lake, just a short two-hour drive from Minneapolis. The Soo Line recreational trail runs through Isle, making for great hiking and biking. Appeldoorns, Chapmans, Fishermen’s Wharf, Hunter Winfield’s, McQuiod’s, and Nitti’s Hunters Point are a few of the great local resorts and guide services.
Milaca has a fine single-track mountain bike trail that runs along the Rum River, and the trails are groomed for cross country skiing in the winter. (Designated a Wild & Scenic River, the Rum makes for excellent canoeing, kayaking, and bass fishing. Photography opportunities are also abundant.)
Princeton is a city of 5,000 located at the intersections of Highway 169 and Highway 95 just a short drive from Minneapolis and St Paul.
The highlight of Mille Lacs County is its namesake lake, the 128,000 acre Mille Lacs Lake. A world-class walleye fishery, it enjoys exceptional water clarity at 11 feet, as well as substantial populations of northern pike, rock bass, smallmouth bass, and perch.
Onamia Lake is a large (2,100 acre) shallow lake with a maximum depth of only 10 feet. Ogechie Lake is a small, shallow lake filled with northerns, pumpkinseed, and perch. Shakopee Lake is a 621-acre lake connected to the Rum River. It has dense beds of vegetation and is a good lake for walleye, northern pike, crappie, and bluegill.
