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.
Brophy is in Douglas County and its lake classification is General Development.
