"Outing on Lake Roosevelt" Outing by Aprl24

Outing Travel Guide: 0 reviews and 2 photos

Outing, MN

Located on a peninsula and connected by a bridge, Outing is the only town on Lake Roosevelt. You can drive your boat up to the public docks to visit the gas station, grocery store, butcher, video store, marina, gift shop, wine boutique, and coffee shop. Visit the other side of the bridge and you can park your boat, hop off and enjoy breakfast, lunch, and/or dinner at "Pestello's Bar and Grill". First called "The Bridge", then "The Season's", the new owners have really updated the place and "Pestello's" is THE spot to go when vacationing on Lake Roosevelt. The food is excellent!

And don't forget to stop at the gift shop, "Owl's and Things" for a FANTASTIC ice cream cone on a hot day :)

Lake Roosevelt

Located between Emily and Outing, Lake Roosevelt is over 6 miles long and reaches a maximum depth of approximately 130 feet. The water is crystal clear as the lake is spring fed, and it's the most refreshing lake to swim in.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Tiny town that has all you need when you hop off your boat!
  • Cons:Sometimes you've got to wait a few minutes for a space to park your boat.
  • In a nutshell:My favorite little town in Minnesota. I never visit my cabin without visiting Outing.
