“Good time, wish beach was swimmable”
Reviewed 26 August 2008

My family and my wifes extended family booked a week at this resort about 2 hours from Twin Cities, MN. The resort is not fancy, but quite practical with some activities for kids, and pretty reasonable.

We stayed a large cabin up the hill from the lake that was basically a double-wide manufactured home, quite roomy nice size kitchen and a great screened in deck that overlooked the pool area and lake in the distance.

This resort is located on the southwest bay of Lake Mary. This lake is a good fishing lake with many types including : Walleye, Sunfish, Bluegill, Crappie, Northern Pike, & Bass. We had a blast fishing as our group brought 2 small fishing boats.

The resort also has 2 new pools (not huge but decent size for the resort size) 1 pool is a square wadding pool for the young kids. Thank god it had a pool cuz the beach, although it looked nice was all muck when you entered the water. They have a trampoline and a raft out in the water but its in 4 feet of water/muck! Other amenities included a minigolf area that was $1.50 to play, It was a bit rundown and not all that exciting. A Fish house is available to clean your daily catch in. 3 paddle boats were available and free to use, the older kids enjoyed using them. There is fish to be caught from the docks but the docks are more designed to hold boats than to fish off of.

I recommend this as a reasonable priced place to go if you love to fish and the kids are happy only swimming in the pool and playing in the sand at the beach.
