The City of Isle is a small resort community located on the southeast end of Mille Lacs Lake, only two hours north of Minneapolis.

Isle’s business district includes a medical clinic, retail stores and a full line of professional services. Isle is protected by a volunteer fire department & ambulance service, as well as it’s own police department.

A number of resorts and campgrounds welcome visitors each year. Mille Lacs Lake is known as one of the best walleye fishing lakes in the state of Minnesota and is perfect for sailing, water skiing and all kinds of other water activities. The Soo line recreational trail runs through the heart of Isle offering hiking/biking, ATVing and snowmobile recreation.

In addition, the city has completed construction on new restrooms at our “Isle Lake View Park’ located on the shores of Mille Lacs Lake. The park is open to the public and has picnic tables, a band shelter, swimming beach and fishing pier, all over looking spectacular Isle Bay.
