For centuries, Native American tribes lived in the area before it was found by two boys paddling up the Minnehaha Creek in 1822.

The name "Lake Minnetonka" stems from an American Indian meaning of "big waters," and is unsurprisingly one of the Minnesota's largest lakes.

The lake is known for its excellent outdoor reaction – including boating, fishing, swimming, hiking the shores, and much more.
