ⓘ Lake Shetek

Lake Shetek is the largest lake in southwestern Minnesota, United States, and the headwaters of the Des Moines River. It is located in The Lakes, an unincorporated community in Murray County a few miles north-northwest of Currie. The name Shetek is derived from "pelican" in the Ojibwe language.

Since large lakes rare in southwestern Minnesota and for some distance beyond the borders of Iowa and South Dakota, lake Shetek is a significant regional draw for recreation on the water. State Park Lake Shetek lies on the Eastern shore.
