On the northern edge of the City of Waconia is beautiful Lake Waconia. As the largest lake in Carver County and the second largest in the Twin Cities seven county metropolitan area, Lake Waconia boasts many year round activities; sailing, boating, fishing, water skiing and swimming, just to name a few. In the spring and fall, the wide-open waters and seasonal winds call wind surfers, sailboarders and sailors from miles around. The maple-basswood trees surrounding Lake Waconia create a fall landscape second to none. Lake Waconia becomes a city unto itself in the winter with thousands of ice-fishing houses forming a community of anglers enjoying a Minnesota winter.
