These Are The 10 Most Pristine Lakes In Minnesota… And They’re Positively Stunning

In the Land of 10,000 Lakes we have plenty of aquatic options – so what makes any lake better than the next? From gorgeous, sandy beaches to beautiful bays there are many factors we Minnesotans consider when ranking our favorite lakes, but none are probably as important as simple clarity. It comes down to a simple truth, that no matter the surroundings we will always favor the lakes in northern MN that have crystal clear, stunning water. These 10 in particular are known for their pristine condition, and their beauty will never cease to amaze you.
