About the map

Minnesota Map Extent

In this map, you will find major rivers, reservoirs, and lakes of Minnesota. Minnesota is nicknamed the “land of 10,000 lakes”. But it actually has 11,842 lakes, which are over 10 acres in area.

The largest lake in Minnesota is Red Lake at close to 289,000 acres, which includes both the “Upper” and “Lower”. The next largest lakes are Mille Lacs Lake at 132,500 acres and Leech Lake at 111,500 acres.

On the east side of Minnesota, the Mississippi River flows separating its boundary with Wisconsin. But on the west side of Minnesota, it’s the Bois de Sioux River and Red River that carves out the boundary between North Dakota.

  1. Thanks G. Moore, I very much appreciate the feedback. It looks like it was an exporting error and it did not include that part of the Mississippi River near Wisconsin. I’ve fixed the issue. Please send me any more feedback if you see any issues with any other maps.

  2. Why doesn’t the Mississippi River extend to the Wisconsin/Minnesota border on your map?
