About Lake Benton, MN

Original Wind Power Capital of the Midwest

Lake Benton is conveniently located in southwestern Minnesota on the crossroads of the nation—U.S. #75 (International Highway King of Trails) and U.S. #14 (Laura Ingall’s Wilder Historic Highway). Lake Benton rests on the western shore of the lake bearing the same name and that was mapped by Joseph N. Nicollet. In his journey to this lake in the summer of 1838, Nicollet was accompanied by John C. Fremont, then a young man who became known as “The Path Finder” for his explorations of the Rocky Mountains. 2,875-acre Lake Benton is approximately seven miles long and provides many recreational opportunities for visitors that include camping, water sports, fishing, and horseback riding on surrounding trails. Residents of Lake Benton invite visitors to enjoy plays at their extraordinary Opera House, festivals, historic buildings and sites, and specialty shopping. Along Buffalo Ridge, Lake Benton’s skyline is graced by over 600 wind turbines that generate clean, renewable energy.
