“Wonderful Private Clean Wooded Campsites”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 September 2013

Golden Eagle Lodge has been passed down through 2 generations. The family care is evident in the landscape, cabins & campground. Very picturesque site on Flour Lake. We camped in a 34' trailer & loved the privacy of the sites - each with thick trees on either side of site. Well maintained - very neat & clean. Rented a motor (new 2013 motor) & boat to fish Flour Lake. Great location not far from other restaurants. Heard loons call both day & night. Wi-Fi worked in lodge. Only downside was using their dump station as we left which because it is too high, on the wrong side for trailers & RVS, & not on a platform would not completely empty our tanks. Still, I would definitely recommend this site.

Whether your camping, fishing or hiking or lodging you'll find Golden Eagle Lodge the best value for its amenities. This is our third trip to Golden Eagle where we camped and fished for a full week each time. The lake abounds with trout, small mouth bass and walleye to boot. The family owned operation is top notch. Dan and his wife Theresa make you feel like family. Their three 20 something kids Zach, Johnathon and Brianna work the lodge as well as attending college. Chuck and Deb are outstanding staff who are familiar with the surroundings as well. If you want a prestine visit to the north woods anytime during the year including winter for cross country skiing this is a must stay location. Especially nice they are pet friendly. Ginger Little loved it there.

NEVER AGAIN! We camped at Flour Lake Campground in 2013 near Grand Marais. The camping is very rustic. It's a federal site run by Golden Eagle Lodge but not owned by Golden. The website doesn't tell you have to pay to use the showers at Golden Eagle Lodge for $5 - 1 Mile away. The staff at Golden Eagle treat you like low class citizens if you are not staying with them. The service was cold and impersonnel. If you are not staying with them they will not let you use the bathrooms or their property to swim. The owner chased me out of the toilet one day and was extremely rude. Creepy rude people! Never go to Golden Eagle Lodge. We then went to Gunflint Lodge and had a extremely awesome experience. We were there to zip line and lunch and it was ok to hang on their beach and use their bathrooms. THANK YOU GUNFLINT!!!

Zach B, Manager at Golden Eagle Lodge, responded to this review, 18 July 2014
This person did not stay at our place of business yet expected to use all of our facilities for free. When they first drove over from the Flour Lake Campground, a federal facility, they inquired about our shower building and its use. They were informed that the private shower facilities at the lodge were reserved for our campground guests and that the public could take showers during office hours for a fee of $6 per person; they acknowledged this fact. This fee information is also posted on the Flour Lake Campground’s website, at the campground itself, as well as outside each door on the shower building. This person clearly had no regard for our rules, or the law, and snuck over around midnight on the night of July 4, 2013. They proceeded to occupy our shower building and take showers while our guests had to wait outside, having just returned from the fireworks in Grand Marais. We were informed the next morning about the situation and gave this person an opportunity to let us know they took showers. When they came back over that afternoon and mentioned nothing of the matter, we confronted them about it and then contacted the sheriff’s department. The situation was later resolved and this person reimbursed us for their activities after admitting their actions to the officer.

As the concessionaire of the Flour Lake Campground, we fully welcome guests from that facility to visit us as we greatly enjoy the interaction, stories, and experiences shared. We take immense pride in doing everything we can to ensure that each person has an enjoyable and memorable experience at Golden Eagle Lodge, but we do not tolerate thieves or illegal activities.
