About our lake
Norway Lake is a lake in Kandiyohi County, in the U.S. state of Minnesota. A large share of the early settlers near the lake being natives of Norway caused the name to be selected
Norway lake is a true Minnesota lake and supports almost every lake activity from fishing, tubing, long-boarding and on. The only thing it doesn't support is maybe yachting as its not that big.
Norway is located in Kandiyohi County, Minnesota. This lake is 2339 acres in size. It is approximately 33 feet deep at its deepest point. Norway lake is the middle of 3 connected lake areas. Norway, West Norway, and Games Lake. While Norway encompasses 2 of the 3 areas its separated by a bridge or a swampy area from West Norway. Their is even a 3rd section of the lake, a smaller partially separated area between Norway and Games that is referred to as "Little Norway". The passage between Norway lake and games lake is very tight and not always open for watercraft bigger than a jet ski.
