Willmar / Spicer / Kandiyohi County, Minnesota

About the Area

Minnesota is blessed with an amazing array of lakes of all sizes and qualities. Perhaps seeming unfair at times, certain areas of the state somehow got more than their fair share of the good ones…and Kandiyohi County is certainly no exception to that!

Willmar sits nearly in the center of the county, and with a population of nearly 20,000 residents it holds a strong distinction as a hub city in this southwestern area of Minnesota. Only about an hour from St. Cloud, Alexandria or Granite Falls, it is easy to take a day trip into these neighboring cities for lunch, shopping, or just a change of scenery, and the smaller communities nearer to it have a wide range of restaurants and retail geared toward the needs of lakeshore owners.

The lakes throughout the Kandiyohi County area tend to be on the high end of the quality scale. Many of them with water clarity at ten feet or above have crystal blue waters that you typically see more often on lakes in Northern Minnesota. Because of this, it is relatively easy to find waterfront real estate on nice, clear lakes at reasonable prices. However, there is one lake that stands out from the rest in quality, size, and property values.

Green Lake, at over 5,000 acres, is just up the road from Willmar. It is the main focus of the community of Spicer, where businesses cater to these lake residents who often come this way for a good time. There is a lot going on here, with outdoor concerts, lakeside decks to take in a meal and a drink, and an array of water activities on a constant basis. This is a destination lake that many choose to shop for real estate on, and its quality will keep it that way for many years to come.

If you're looking for good waterfront real estate - either in a lake home or a cabin - less than two hours west of the Minneapolis and St. Paul Area, the Willmar, Spicer and New London Areas may have what you need.
