From the birds & bees to the lakes and the trees...”
Nestled in Itasca county in Northern Minnesota and deep within the Chjippewa National Forest, Sand Lake is home to many and a welcome retreat for others. We boast friendly people, a rich history and premier walleye fishing.
The Sand Lake Property Owner’s Association is a tax-exempt non-profit association whose two main goals are to improve fish management and water quality in our lakes. Our association is managed 100% by Lake Owner volunteers. There are no salaries. We operate completely on Dues and Donations.
Sand Lake is located in the heart of the Chippewa National Forest in the well-known Bowstring Chain of lakes. Sand Lake is a 4,328-acre naturally fed lake with direct access to Bowstring Lake, Little Sand Lake, the Bowstring River, Rice Lake, Birds’ Eye Lake, Portage Lake, Dora Lake and the Bigfork River. It is eight miles long and four miles wide with a maximum depth of 70 feet, a median depth of 17 feet, and 19.9 miles of beautiful shoreline. It holds an abundance of fish such as Walleye, Northern Pike, Large & Small Mouth Bass, Jumbo Perch, Crappies and Pan Fish.
