Rented a cabin with an excellent view of the lake. Staff was attentive to their guests needs. Lots of planned activities and recreation options with both indoor and outdoor pools, canoeing, beach/lake swimming. Family had a great visit!

First, I would reiterate what many people have posted - the staff is friendly and responsive. Other than that, the stay was very disappointing for us (a couple and adult son). The cabin we stayed in (697) was old and dumpy. This was supposed to be a "get away weekend" for us. Our son likes to ice fish, so we...

The Coon rapids boys traveling teams had tournaments in Brainerd so we all stayed at Craguns. Everyone had a great time! Large pool area with a bar/ restaurant area, many things to do, horse carriages, dog sleds etc..

Thank you so much for your nice comments on your visit to Cragun's. The sports teams that stay with us really appreciate the fact that they are able to enjoy a mini vacation while they are in town, in addition to participating in a tournament. It also works out great for the family members that travel along to the tournaments....

We spent a week at Cragens during January. We snowmobiled, ice fished and played in the snow. Everything was fantastic. The buffet was good and the staff was very friendly and helpful. They had everything you would need. The only improvement we can come up with was it would have been nice if they had some toasters that worked better...
