Only 3 miles from Alexandria, Lake Brophy is 292 acres, has a maximum depth of 44 feet and water clarity of 9.3 feet (2010 MN DNR Fisheries Lake Survey). Along a portion of the west side of the lake in Lake Brophy County Park. Passing along the north end of the lake is the wonderful Central Lakes Trail. Brophy has a unique feature as it has an island that is privately owned. There is a house on it and I have always wanted to meet the owner and learn of the logistics of day to day life on the island.
