Waconia takes great pride in its small-town atmosphere of hospitality, its school district, and its excellent health care facilities. Crown College and Ridgeview Medical Center are important assets to the community, as are the city´s scenic lakes and parks. Waconia is perhaps best known for Lake Waconia, the largest lake in Carver County, and the second largest in the seven-county Twin Cities metro area. Area residents enjoy the lake´s scenic qualities and the broad array of activities possible there, including great fishing, swimming, water skiing, boating, windsurfing, and much more. In the winter months, the ice fishing is amazing, and you´ll see literally thousands of ice-fishing houses dotting the ice.
Waconia is home to a perfect, fully recreational Minnesota lake!
