About Lake Bruin

Lake Bruin is a 3,000-acre oxbow lake, approximately 18 miles long and plenty wide. Once a part of the Mississippi River, it is a deep, clean lake, with depths of 60 feet in places. It is thought to be 1700 years old and was created when the river changed its course. Lake Bruin has been stocked with Florida, striped and largemouth bass, all of which are plentiful to catch.

On Bruin, we have a slower pace, a live let live attitude. Whether you are on a sunset cruise or a jet ski looking for action, you will appreciate all the reasons we love this place. Our water sports are unsurpassed because you can do it all here on our wide-open lake. Lake Bruin is engaging and has a seductive beauty that draws you in, once here, it is hard to leave. We call it our "environmental Prozac". Good for the soul!

We have a little of it all here. Our homes on the lake can run from rustic fishing camps and cozy cottages to luxurious homes with sprawling lawns. Whatever your needs are, I can help you find just the right place for you and your family.
