Minnetonka Lake is located in Minnesota, 12 miles (19 km) west of Minneapolis. This beautiful natural lake, 23 square miles (60 sq km) in area, has a deeply indented, wooded shoreline and several small islands.
The lake and its vicinity constitute the Minnetonka Game Refuge. Once famous for its luxurious multi-decked excursion steamers and large hotels, the lake is still a popular resort, the site of many summer homes, and a center for water recreation. The resort also has facilities for golf and tennis.
