We talk a lot about the Minnesota towns that are hard to pronounce, but we always seem to gloss over the difficult lake names in Minnesota...and there are a lot. Minnesota is home to more than 15,000 lakes, and we definitely have some zingers on this list that'll make you question if you're saying these right. Perhaps you're visiting a friend's cabin for the first time and you have no idea how to tell people what lake you're going to...because it's a doozy to say. Give these lake names your best shot! How many of these difficult Minnesota lake names do you know how to pronounce correctly?
