The Towns We Live In ~ Crosslake
Have you ever "Googled" yourself, or looked yourself up on Wikipedia? You might be surprised what the Internet says about you. It's fun, so go ahead and do it. We decided to do that with our four home towns, and see what Wikipedia has to say about us. This is Crosslake:
Crosslake is a city in Crow Wing County, Minnesota, United States. The population was 2,141 at the 2010 census. It is part of the Brainerd Micropolitan Statistical Area. (we like to call it the Brainerd Lakes Area)
According to the United States Census Bureau, Crosslake has a total area of 36.89 square miles, of which 25.74 square miles is land and 11.15 (a little over 30%) square miles is water.
Crosslake was incorporated in 1959, and has had a post office since 1894. In 1972 it absorbed North Cross Lake, Minnesota. The Crosslake Dam, located on the Pine River next to the Army Corp of Engineers Campground, creates the Whitefish Chain of Lakes, with 14 lakes and over 14,000 acres of water to explore.
