Southern Wright County & Winstead, Minnesota

About the Area

Heading due west between Minneapolis and Willmar, you will come across many farming communities like Howard Lake, Waverly, Winstead and Cokato. Several of these communities grew up around large water bodies that have shaped their identities over the years. Each of the four towns listed above have lakes of the same name, and three of them have built their communities around them.

This may not be necessarily considered “lake country” by those who head north to their cabins each week, but these are strong close knit communities that are proud to have these lakes as main focal points to their lives. There is good fishing, water-skiing, and all the other recreational opportunities you would find on any other similar sized lake.

Several other lakes are scattered throughout this area of Southern Wright County with several hundred acres of surface area each. Lake Collinwood, Lake Ann, and Fountain Lake near Delano are all in this category.
