Lake of the Woods Tourism
Ice fishing on Minnesota's Lake of the Woods & Rainy River area truly offers a unique and satisfying winter experience. Each year more visitors return to the area as they hear by word of mouth from their friends or relatives about this exciting wilderness area. Sprawling Lake of the Woods is the largest inland freshwater lake in the continental U.S. next to the great lakes and is truly considered "big water" country. Even so, it doesn't take long to get out on the ice where the action is waiting.
