Area Information on White Bear Lake, Minnesota

Situated on the borders of Ramsey and Washington counties, White Bear Lake is a beautiful city of about 23,800 residents as of the 2010 Census.

The city is located on the shores of White Bear Lake, which is considered one of the largest lakes in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area.

The city’s (and lake’s) name originates with the Native Americans who previously inhabited the area. Legend has it that the name comes from a great fight between a Chippewa brave and a white bear.

The brave fought the bear because the bear had previously attacked the brave’s lover.

But during the fight, both the bear and the brave died.

Over the years, White Bear Lake has transformed itself from a resort town to a highly sought-after residential community.
