McLain Lake (Chicog, Wisconsin)

This 150-acre lake is conveniently located west of Minong and just off Highway 77.  It’s about halfway in between Mathews Lake and North and South Twin Lakes.  McClain Lake has a shoreline of 2 miles, a maximum depth of 30 feet, and a mean depth of 11 feet.  Secchi disk readings are around 19 feet.

In McLain Lake, you’ll find northerns, walleyes, largemouth bass, and panfish.  Public access is from a landing at the southwest corner.

Although much of the lake remains undeveloped, the presence of Highway 77 along its southern edge means that McLain Lake has less of a wilderness feel to it.  In exchange, you get convenient access and a quick drive up from the Twin Cities.

There aren’t a lot of homes or cabins on McClain Lake.  Those that do come on the market can be in a wide range of sizes and prices. Many of them have sandy waterfronts that are good for swimming.
