Lake Pepin is the largest river lake on the Mississippi and at one time extended all of the way north to St. Paul. The Mississippi River Valley we see today was carved bluff to bluff through the process of receding glacial waters. At the south end of Lake Pepin, an enormous amount of water is forced through the river channel. It is this force, combined with the steady movement of water draining into the Mississippi River from two tributary Rivers which allow the waters around the lower end of the Lake to remain open throughout the cold winter months. Lake Pepin is said to be one of the best areas for inland sailing in the world. The coulees between the bluffs bring winds from various directions that converge on the 22 mile long lake.
