A Tale of Two Lakes
Whether you grow up living on the lake, near the lake or dreaming about the lake, Prior Lake is the epitome of lake life. Home to 14 lakes within its city limits, Prior Lakes most popular lakes are Upper and Lower Prior Lake.
Lower Prior Lake is the larger of the two with an area of 956 acres and a maximum depth of 60 feet. With 14.73 miles of lakeshore, Lower Prior Lake is sure to have a place you can call “home”. Whether it is at Sand Point Beach, Candy Cove or your very own lake home you’re guaranteed to find your very own piece of lake life on Lower Prior Lake. If fishing is your favorite hobby, expect to catch Walleye, Largemouth Bass, Bluegill and Northern Pike. No matter what your favorite lake hobby is, Lower Prior Lake can accommodate all of your lake day activities.
Upper Prior Lake is the smaller of the two main lakes in Prior Lake with an area of 386 acres and its deepest point is 50 feet. Upper Prior Lake only has 6.15 miles of lakeshore but it is home to one of Prior Lakes most popular restaurants, Charlies on Prior. If you’re on a boat or in a car, Charlies is able to accommodate you no matter what so you can enjoy those delicious brat pops for an appetizer before those tasty walleye tacos as an entrée.
It doesn’t matter if you favor Upper or Lower Prior Lake more, as long as you enjoy these summer days on the lake, what more could you ask for!
