Sauk Centre is home to professional walleye legend Pete Harsh who grew up fishing on the banks of the Sauk Lake. According to Harsh, Whether you want to fish for sunnies, crappies, bass, northern or walleye, it provides a smorgasbord of fish.

For beautiful beaches visit the Fairy Lake Chain just minutes up the road on Hwy 17. A public picnic area plus Frisbee Golf course make the Lions Club Park a great family get-together. Sauk Centre is a designated State Canoe and Boat Waterway with canoe access at Conservation Park below the Sauk River dam on Main Street.
