About Moose Lake

The City of Moose Lake, Minnesota is located on Interstate 35, 40 Miles south of Duluth and 100 miles north of Minneapolis-St. Paul.  Moose Lake is home to 2844 residents and many businesses.

 Known as “A City for All the Seasons,” Moose Lake is a popular destination for tourists seeking the tranquility of the area’s beautiful lakes, rivers and forests.  Moose Lake State Park is a haven for anglers, hikers, canoeists, swimmers and campers while the Moose Lake Agate and Geological Center offers informative displays focusing on rocks, minerals and area geology. The Willard Munger State Trail, located two miles west of the park, is a collection of interconnecting trails linking Hinckley and Duluth and offering hiking, bicycling, inline skating and snowmobiling that showcases the beauty of East Central Minnesota.

 Moose Lake enjoys a healthy local economy with an updated downtown business district, expanded state of the art medical campus and growing freeway development.  It functions as a regional center for the residents of neighboring areas who regularly use Moose Lake’s library, schools and medical facilities, with easy access along Interstate 35 and State Highways 27 and 73.

City Government

 With a staff of 16 full-time and 31 part-time and seasonal employees, the City provides a wide range of services including law enforcement, public works, water, sewer and parks and recreation.  The City also operates a public library, a liquor store and a license bureau; municipal electric operations are provided by the Moose Lake Power and Light. Programs providing affordable housing are offered by the Moose Lake Housing and Redevelopment Authority (HRA) which also operates Hillside Manor West Apartments.

The City of Moose Lake is governed by a five-member City Council.  The Mayor is elected to a two-year term and members of the City Council serve overlapping four-year terms.  Meetings are held the second Wednesday of each month.
