Lake Itasca

Lake Itasca may be small, but as it is the headwaters of the Mississippi River, it is one of the most important natural locations in the state of Minnesota. The lake can be found in Clearwater County and it houses the University of Minnesota’s Itasca Biological Station and Laboratories campus. The lake is popular with boaters and is stocked with game fish. Visitors to Lake Itasca will also find plenty to see and do across Itasca State Park, which is the oldest park in Minnesota.
