Boedigheimer Lake is located 6.5 miles south of Perham, MN in Otter Tail County. It is an oval-shaped lake covering 169 acres (Table 1). Boedigheimer Lake has one major inlet and one outlet, which classify it as a drainage lake. Water enters Boedigheimer Lake from Rice Lake in the west and exits out its southeast end draining into Rush Lake. From Rush Lake it joins the Otter Tail River. Water quality data have been collected on Boedigheimer Lake in 2002-2012 (Tables 2 & 3). These data show that the lake is mesotrophic (TSI = 47) with moderately clear water conditions most of the summer and fair recreational opportunities. The Boedigheimer Lake Association is involved in many activities including water quality monitoring, and is a member of the Otter Tail County Coalition of Lake Associations (COLA).
