There are hundreds of lakes within minutes of Deerwood, Crosby-Ironton, and Aitkin. Two lakes are at least partly within the city limits of Deerwood, offering lake shore living with the amenities of small town life. SERPENT LAKE is a real jewel, with around a thousand acres of clean water, fishing, and general recreational activities. RABBIT LAKE is comprised of two "bowls" with a navigable channel in between. BAY LAKE is home to Ruttger's Bay Lake Lodge and is one of the premier lakes in the area. CROOKED LAKE is actually a chain of lakes with HANKS BAY and PORTAGE LAKE making up the balance. CEDAR LAKE lies between Deerwood and Aitkin and is a large sprawling lake with trophy musky fishing and scenic lake views. There are always a number of LAKE HOMES for sale on these prized waters.
The Cuyuna State Recreational Area lies on the edge of Ironton. Much of this land is the site of former mining activity. The pits have been reclaimed as lakes. There are 15 mine pit lakes with depths up to 525'. These lakes have extremely clear water and have been stocked with trout, available for fishing! The "rec" area also offers hiking trails and the new mountain biking trails. These mountain bike trails offer a unique & rugged experience for bikers. For a less rugged experience, you can drive up to the scenic overlook with gorgeous views of the whole area. You won't see any HOUSES in the "rec" area, it's all nature! Cross country skiing trails are available at Wolf Lake and Larson Lake, near Deerwood. Both have wooded nature trails with modest hills. Golfers can enjoy their sport at Cuyuna Country Club in Deerwood or at Ruttgers on Highway 6.
Location is the most important aspect to consider in any REAL ESTATE purchase. Deerwood and neighbor cities Aitkin & Crosby-Ironton lie smack dab in the middle of the Lakes Area of Central Minnesota. Two hours to most Twin City locations. Two hours to Duluth, half hour to Brainerd, and 20 minutes to the Grand Casino on Mille Lacs. There are many fine HOUSES available, LAKE LOTS too.
