The people of Pequot Lakes, all 2,300 of them, are proud of their friendly little tourist town. In the middle of lake country, Pequot Lakes is a growing, family-oriented town. With a mix of jobs and industries, including Ideal Systems Solutions, a women owned technology partner for businesses, Pequot Lakes is a great place to build a life. In the summer enjoy a variety of water sports on nearby Sibley Lake. Every Saturday in the summer there are bands in Trailside Park. Bobber Park is appropriately named as it sits under the historic bobber water tower. Paul Bunyan’s Babe the Blue Ox and his ax are also there to see! Trailside Park along the Paul Bunyan Trail even has Paul Bunyan’s footprints. For a park in a nature setting, visit Gildner Park or get ready to fish at Sibley Lake Park. The Mayo Lake Nature Preserve has wide open spaces to enjoy the outdoors, in fact it's 67 acres of open space!
