The Whitefish Chain of Lakes is a set of 14 interconnected lakes situated between the communities of Crosslake, Pequot Lakes and Pine River. The Whitefish Chain offers not only spectacular boating and fishing with more than 14,000 acres of water to explore, but also a great opportunity for you to enjoy your own sugar sand beach and relax afloat the sky blue waters in front of your beautiful lake home.
Whitefish serves as one of the DNR's primary walleye egg take sites at the mouth of the Pine River. Because of this, the lake is stocked annually, with at least 5,000,000 walleye fry being put back into the lake from the eggs collected at the walleye trap. Whitefish is also stocked in even numbered years with fingerlings. The beautiful, natural scenery of the extends beyond the shore's edge, with trails for hiking and biking, as well as snowmobiling and cross country skiing.
The Whitefish Chain Region is home to the Paul Bunyan Trail, a 100+ mile rails to trails project offering a flat, paved surface ideal for biking, rollerblading or walking. The National Paul Bunyan Scenic Byway driving route also winds its way completely around the Whitefish Chain, offering information and entertaining kiosks on the historical, archaeological, cultural, recreational and scenic qualities of the region.
