White Bear Lake—the lake, not the city—was immortalized by Mark Twain in “Life on the Mississippi” (written in 1883). The lake covers nearly 2,500 acres and measures 83 feet at its deepest point.
White Bear Lake, the city, sits on the northwest shore of the lake and has a notorious history, if you believe local legend. Gangsters Ma Barker, Pretty Boy Floyd, and Alvin “Creepy” Karpis supposedly hid out in the area.
In addition to the notorious, the city has attracted hikers, bikers, swimmers and boaters with its 19 parks and beaches as well as the Rotary Nature Preserve.
All that green space has contributed to an air quality index—measured in the number of days ranked as “good”— of 84 percent.

The median age is 39.2.
