Chisago City Reviews
I grew up in Chisago, and it had a great public education system with a lot of opportunities through the school and the community. It is a great place for outdoor activities in every season with a short commute to nearby cities with more things to do. There is a lot of lakes for fishing, water skiing, wakeboarding, ice fishing, ice skating snowmobiling and anything else you could think of. As well as a lot of public land for hunting. There is a state park just past Chisago as well as a water park, and skiing and snowboarding in the winter. In the summer Chisago also hosts one of the bigger triatholon's in the midwest. This is a great place to live if you love outdoors and want to stay active.
Lived here for 4 years. Decent place to raise a family with a small town feel. Good jobs don't exist in this area--you'll likely have to travel +45 mins towards the twin cities for work. Housing is cheaper compared to other places closer to the cities because its considered a "rural" area. Crime is relatively minimal--has your run down part of town with stereotypical drug addicts/domestic issues. Not much to do out here, Lindstrom is a cute town nearby to visit. It has beautiful gorgeous lakes and is a friendly area. School district in this area are very mediocre, not great but not bad either.
Chisago is a great community. There are over 6 lakes in the area, providing fun activities at all times of the year. It is a Swedish community and we have an annual festival celebrating the Swedish heritage. One downfall is the long and cold winters that come with living in Minnesota.
