Little Rock Lake is a reservoir in Benton County, Minnesota, United States. The lake was formed in 1911 by the impounding of the Mississippi River by the Sartell Dam 5 miles (8 km) downriver. Little Rock Lake was named from Little Rock Creek.[3]

The lake has two public boat access points. Water clarity in the lake is low (less than 1.5 feet) and aquatic plants are abundant.[1]
