About Lake Miltona
Lake Miltona is a heavily developed recreational lake located in Douglas County eleven miles north of Alexandria. It is considered one of the finest lakes in Central Minnesota, and has been rated third in the state for providing conditions and nutrients to sustain fish life per acre feet of water. Lake Miltona was named for Florence Miltona Roadtruck, the wife of a pioneer who settled there.

The lake offers a multitude of fish habitats from shallow submerged flats to crystal clear depths that plunge over a hundred feet. Lake Miltona is an amazing paradise for the angler with a variety of fish species including Crappie, Bluegill, Sunfish, Largemouth Bass, Muskie, Northern Pike, Perch, Rock Bass, Smallmouth Bass, and Walleye.

Lake Miltona covers 5724.28 acres of spring fed waters, and has a maximum depth of 105 feet. The lake has over 15 miles of shoreline, and extends over 7 miles long.

Lake Miltona Water quality and clarity are considered good. Secchi disk transparency is the method of measure. Clarity monitoring is showing significant increases over a year ago - 19 feet most recently as compared to 16 feet a year ago (2015).

Lake Miltona supports an abundant and diverse aquatic plant community, including large beds of hard stem bulrush. These aquatic plants provide important spawning and cover habitat for many fish species. They also help to maintain water quality and protect the shoreline from wave and boat traffic induced erosion.

Lake Miltona also provides great ice fishing opportunities for the winter residents.
