Hackensack was incorporated as a village in 1903. During the early 20th century, the town of Hackensack and Birch Lake emerged as the premiere fishing and vacation destinations they remain today.
Fishing in Birch Lake is excellent and the lake is brimming with native Minnesotan species such as perch, bass and walleye. Boating is another favorite pastime on the waters of Birch Lake.
