Annandale is a charming Central Minnesota community, rich in vacation history and treasured for its plentiful lakes, idyllic cottages, and friendly faces. Home to beautiful parks, a vibrant business district, the simple cabin life, and a historic 4th of July celebration - Annandale is loved for these things and much more.
Our convenient location, a half hour South of St. Cloud and an hour West of the Twin Cities, puts the landscapes, culture, and cabin life opportunities of this area within reach. Yet living here offers residents a wonderful lifestyle all its own.

In addition, thousands visit Annandale every summer for our fantastic 4th of July celebration, over 125 years in the making!
