Cass Lake on the Lady Slipper Scenic Byway is the largest of the eight lakes on the Cass Chain of Lakes. Starting further north in Minnesota, the Mississippi River flows through Cass and the other lakes on the chain, before it heads to the Twin Cities area. The entire chain can be traveled by boat through the Chippewa National Forest. With nearly 16,000 acres and 27 miles of forested shoreline and sandy beaches, the scenery around Cass is unending. The lake is world renown for fishing, delivering trophy muskies up to 40 pounds and abundant perch. Crystal clear waters and sugar sand beaches deliver peaceful, relaxing surroundings. The area is also home to the Leech Lake Band of Ojibwe, who hold colorful Pow-Wow celebrations each year.
