Swimming at Lake Benton Minnesota

Swimming & Boating

Lake Benton, with 2800+ acres of water, gives you plenty of space to swim, fish, water ski, tube, or enjoy a scenic ride around the lake. Feel free to enjoy the water by walking in the lake or jumping in from the dock to refresh on a warm day. The water is a comfortable 5 feet deep for the safety of you and your children.

The dock is not guaranteed between Labor Day and Memorial Day due to freezing water temperatures.  

Fishing on Lake Benton Minnesota


The fishery of Lake Benton is spectacular and primarily managed for walleye and secondarily for northern pike, black crappie, bluegill, and yellow perch. While younger walleye dominates the population, growth is good, which allows the size structure of the population to be in a balanced state.

From a boat or just off the dock, you will be sure to enjoy your fishing adventures on one of Minnesota's most beautiful lakes!
