About Big Birch Lake
Big Birch Lake is located in the heart of Minnesota and is home to sparkling waters that stretch across Todd and Stearns County.
Big BirchLake, located near the central tourist region of St. Louis, Minnesota, is also the place where children look above average, men look good, women strong and children below average.
Big Birch Lake is located just off Interstate 94 and is the second largest lake in St. Louis County and the third largest in Minnesota.
Great Birch Lake was formed by the confluence of two lakes, Stearns Lake and Big Birch Lakes, on the north side of the Mississippi.
The Great Birch Lake consists of two basins separated by a rocky sandbar and has undergone several name changes over time, including "Great Birch" and "Birch Lake." The name of the Indians, who gave it the name "big birch lake," translates as "place of small birch trees." Indians like the Stearns Lake Indians and Minnesotans have lived in the countryside for centuries and traces of ancient forts have been discovered.
Once it rises to the surface, the stones are removed from the sandbar to allow boating, and the lake's water level drops to a depth of about 1,000 feet.
The levees on the West Coast are controlled by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, and the valves were originally built during the Great Depression. Big Birch Lake is fed by two main basins, the Lower Main Basin (1,362 hectares), which is the largest basin in the state of Minnesota with a total area of approximately 1.5 million hectares. Other small streams, usually found in the upper basin, feed into the lake and feed it.
Fishing has long been an attraction at the Great Birkensee, and the Great Birkensee is a welcome sight for fishermen. A permanent replacement dam built in 1973 drains water from the neighbouring Kleiner Birkensee into the lake, which in turn flows into the upper basin.
Several boat ramps provide public access to Big Birch Lake, as well as a number of picnic areas, picnic tables and other amenities for the public.
An additional access to the Great Birkensee is located on the eastern shore, in the municipality of Graue - Adler. Big Birch Lake Park, 102nd Street, and a third dirt ramp located at the north end of the park, at the intersection of Angler Drive and East Bank. The second access ramp to the lake from the south side of Lake Superior Drive is located on the northwest bank near Anglers Drive.
On the southwest side of the lake, Birch Lakes State Forest offers a 200-meter shoreline that attracts swimmers and picnickers. Family-friendly amenities include a picnic area, picnic tables and playground, as well as picnic areas for children and adults.
Campers can choose from a variety of camping options, such as campsites, cabins, tents, camper campsites and even a campsite with a picnic area.
If you want to escape the tranquillity of Big Birch Lake and go shopping, you can hike, play golf or visit one of the many golf courses in the area, such as the Great Lakes Golf Course. In summer, hiking trails through the 637 hectares of forest offer numerous opportunities to observe the game and a variety of other activities. Winter can be long in central Minnesota, but when the snow falls and Big Birch Lake freezes over, it's time for winter sports attractions. Snowmobiles are at the top of the list, followed by skiing and snowmobiling in winter, snowshoeing in summer and skiing in autumn.
Most of the coastal development is at the southern end of Big Birch Lake, with the exception of a few small coastal developments at the northern and southern end.
More than 425 homes have been built on Big Birch Lake, about two-thirds of which are seasonal and homeowners. Whether you are renting a vacation rental or buying the property, you can retreat back to the heartland of BigBirch Lake in Minnesota.
Now it is time to sit down by the fire, listen to the gentle, fragile silence of the snowfall and prepare for the coming spring and the new season in the Great Birkensee. Then watch winter take hold over the landscape and wander back into the forest as the summer clouds stop moving over the prairie.
