Seton Lake

DNR Lake ID: 27013307

Location Highlights:
Seton Lake is the channel between Cooks Bay, Harrisons Bay, and Spring Park Bay, working to bridge the west side to the east side of Lake Minnetonka. Seton Lake is a smaller body of water in the city of Mound. The homes in the area are within the Mound Westonka School District.

Water Quality:
The maximum water depth of Seton Lake is 25 feet and has a C rating in water quality by the Minnehaha Creek Watershed District. Seton Lake is a busy channel between Cooks Bay and Harrisons Bay, because of this, it is not a desirable place to swim.

Boating Restrictions:
No wake zone

Lake Access:
Seton Lake’s lack of marinas and boat launches makes it an ideal location to dock recreational boats. In the neighboring, Harrisons Bay, boaters have access to Metro Lakes Marina and Rentals within minutes from Seton Lake. The marina provides access to the water, dock slips, gas pumps, and a variety of rentals like pontoons, fishing boats, jet skis, and paddle boards.

Seton Lake is a popular fishing spot because of its minimum wake regulation. With that, Seton Lake is a busy bay so fishing is better in the early morning or late evenings. A variety of fish species call Seton Lake home, including Largemouth Bass, Muskie, Black and White Crappie, Bluegill, Northern Pike, and Walleye. Seton Lake has proven to be more popular in the winter. Ice houses line the bay from the day the lake freezes over until the first Monday of March. Seton Lake is also home to the dog-friendly brewery, Back Channel Brewing Co. The brewery features a selection of hand-crafted beers and a variety of different food trucks Tuesday through Sunday evenings. Back Channel is accessible by the lake but only has a limited number of dock spaces so plan accordingly if you intend on arriving via boat.
