Hello and welcome to 10th & 11th Crow Wing Lakes Association website! We are neighbors helping neighbors for the greater good of the lakes.
We invite you, both local citizens and visiting guests, to utilize this website as a resource for enjoying our two northern Minnesota lakes in Hubbard County and assisting us in being good stewards of our beautiful spring-fed natural resource. To join our association – yes, anyone who cares about the lakes can join! Click here for LA application (for new members, as well as to renew for current members). Our association meets just twice a year, spring and fall, so keeping informed and active is easy and efficient.
Otherwise, feel free to contact the committee leaders of each of the projects below to offer your assistance or comments — we are a 100% non-profit, volunteer organization, and could always use assistance (time, money, energy). Thank you for considering helping us take care of the lakes for everyone to enjoy, for generations to come!
A Lakes Management Plan was completed in April 2011 (link to .pdf file here:Lake Assoc-11th CW Lake PLAN final . This plan mentions a brief history of our Lakes Association (started in 2001), a bit of historical facts on lakes themselves, water clarity testing (11th averages 14′ clarity), in-depth DNR fisheries plan for both lakes, DNR aquatic vegetation map for 11th, goals for the association, and an outline of Plans of Action for several particular ongoing projects:
1) Curly Leaf Pondweed Control (Aquatic Invasive Species)
2) AIS Prevention in our Lakes – Education and Inspection
3) Highway 64 Issues

- ATV trail safety and erosion concern
- rumble strip noise and biking safety concern
4) Loon Nests
