The Gull Chain of Lakes is located just northwest of Brainerd, Minnesota which is about 135 miles north of Minneapolis, Minnesota. The chain consists of 8 lakes and connecting channels covering 13,000 acres. There are over 2,500 homes on the chain that are both year round and seasonal. The Gull Lake Chain Association was formed in 1969.

The Gull Chain of Lakes Association is currently made up of over 1,000 members in the Gull Lake area that feel there is an advantage to banding together for the betterment of our waters, safety and property values. Those of us who have the time, provide the leg work and those of our neighbors who have only limited time in the area help out with their very important moral and financial support.

Our Special Projects fund is made up of donations to our Environmental Trust Fund, Lake Buoys Fund and a fund to be used at the boards discretion. We continue to add buoys through our "adopt-a-buoy" program to make the chain of lakes a safer place. The Gull Chain of Lakes Association is a 501 (c) (3) organization and all donations to our special projects are tax deductible.
