The Briggs Lake Chain of lakes includes Briggs, Julia, Rush and Big Elk lakes near Clear Lake in Sherburne County, Minnesota.

The Three Lake Lake Improvement District (TLID) is a local government unit for the upper three lakes, and is therefore a more formal organization. Its charge is to manage aquatic invasive species and other projects.
