Clear Lake is a growing rural community located in central Minnesota just north of the Twin Cities. Come for a visit or come here to live. We know you will enjoy what we have to offer.

Also the city was established more than 100 years ago and has maintained its rural identity.  Clear Lake is experiencing new growth and development in recent years. Because we expect this trend to continue, we are looking forward to a diverse and vital population with growing new businesses and job opportunities.

Being located on major traffic arteries between both St. Cloud and the Twin Cities allows us to have easy access to larger city shopping and conveniences while still maintaining our small town neighborhood atmosphere.

There is one elementary school in Clear Lake. It is part of the St. Cloud school district. Approximately 400 students are enrolled in the school. For more information call 320-529-2241 or visit Clearview Elementary School.
