Northeast of Willmar on Highway 23 is the picturesque city of Spicer, nestled on the shores of beautiful Green Lake — one of the state’s most popular bodies of water. It is located only 99 miles west of Minneapolis/St. Paul and 50 miles south of St. Cloud. Spicer is a thriving tourist center with county parks, antique stores and unique gift shops to browse. On top of that, there are also restaurants with atmosphere and great food to experience. The area offers multiple lakes, woods, parks and resorts to enjoy almost any outdoor activity.

“Spicer really is nicer” regardless of what the weather brings. In the wintertime, there are plenty of trails to explore on cross country skis or by snowmobile and the famous Spicer Ice Castles are always a spectacular sight to see on Green Lake. During the warmer months, you’ll find the residents and locals enjoying boat cruises, casting out a line, browsing a flea market or taking a dip in one of the many lakeside shores. Spicer’s amenities combined with the friendly nature of the community make it a wonderful place to visit or call home.

The city of Spicer, Minnesota, is home to 1,112 residents and is part of Independent School District No. 345, otherwise known as NL-S (New London-Spicer) Schools—Home of the Wildcats! Prairie Meadows/ECFE is located in Spicer. The remaining schools in the district are located in the neighboring town of New London, just a few short miles north on Highway 23.
