Lake Minnewaska is a large (8,050 acres, 9.2 feet of clarity, maximum depth 32 feet) lake about a 15 minute drive south of Alexandria with Glenwood at its northeast end and Starbuck at the southwest corner. Like Alexandria’s Chain of Lakes, it offers boaters more than one restaurants to stop at by boat. One of my favorites is Lakeside Ballroom in Glenwood. They have a great lakeside patio and offer some of the best pizza in the area.
Lake Minnewaska is in Pope County and its lake classification is General Development.
