These Are The 15 Deepest Lakes In Minnesota And They Are Positively Stunning

With 10,000+ lakes, Minnesotans always have plenty of swimming, boating, fishing and even scuba diving options. We found the clearest lakes in Minnesota already, but now we are rounding up the 15 lakes in MN that are the deepest.
