Lake County is kind of, sort of entering into the 21st century. They have their plat book online that you can download. It is much better than nothing.

Wow a free platt book. The Minnesota bookstore charges $40.00 for it.
Here is some more info. on Easements.

State highways are most often owned by the state, but there may be a mix of
easements and state ownership.
County roads may be owned by the county, or there may be easements.
Roadways with easements tend to be gravel, while roads owned by the county
tend to be paved. Road surface is a visual indicator of the ownership but is not
an absolute condition.
Township roads are generally easement and not owned by the township, but
some township roads are owned by the township. As is the case with county
roads, road surface can be a visual indicator of the ownership.
The ownership or easement status can vary on any one stretch of road, and
can vary from road to road.
Visually, the road right-of-way is improved and maintained, and you will
normally notice a change in the property including such things as ditches,
fence lines, etc. The actual distance from the center of the road that is improved
and maintained can vary under ownership or easement, and from one location
to another.
The above comes from the Minnesota hunting regulations hand book.

Also Water easments: Property ownership goes to the waters edge.
In Minnesota there is no easment along the shore of any property
at the waters edge. As the water rises the property line moves with it.
As the water drops the same thing happens. That place known as the ordinary high water mark is an area designated by the DNR for control
of shore land. The land owner can do nothing with it. Trepass by the public is forbiden. You may walk in the water and land owner may not prohibit it. You may not step out of the water onto the land.
The White bear lake situation is a good example.
They were blessed with property taxes on the new land and prohibited
from using it by the DNR.
The same thing goes for cattail marshes. They are not public property
unless they are owned by the state or county or city.
Property line goes out to the waters edge, the open water.
Some times many feet into the water. Control only goes to the waters edge. This is for Minnesota only. The law is different in other states
The worst that I have seen is Colorado. There you may not touch the river or stream bottom. Not even with a paddle unless the shore land is publiclly owned.

When you place a geocache you need to check on all this.
Also when you go to find one. I have personaly placed somebody
under arrest in a cattail marsh that I was land manager for.
He trespassed right passed signes placed 20 feet apart.
