Reviewed 28 August 2010

The owners went out of there way to let our dogs out while we spent the day in Grand Marias for the Dragon Boat races. Whether it's where to find berries, what fish are biting, what hikes are nice the Pines have always been ready to provide free helpful and useful information to make our stay as best as it can be. We'll be back in the fall for grouse hunting and the winter to ski and dog sled.

Although the resort has some nice features, it is not on par with other facilities in the area. The cabins are old and in need of repair and there is a general sense of disrepair and sloppiness in the entire resort. We have stayed in other resorts in this area that were much nicer for the price point being asked at Gunflint Pines. This would be a good value and recommended if the prices were not as high as other resorts in the area that are much cleaner and well kept. They also charge for items that other resorts in the area provide for free and we got the feeling we were "nickle and dimed" on many items during our stay.

I traveled from New York, to Arkansas, the Grand Canyon, Pacific Coast and back to New York again, and Gunflint Pines was my favorite stay of the whole trip. The Staff was great, and the A-Frame that I stayed in was wonderful. The Lake is great for paddling. My only regret was that I didn't have more time to spend there. It will bring fond memories for years to come.

The owners and staff of this place were incredible!!! They have a small lodge with a wood burning stove and tables and couches were we came one afternoon to escape the rain, they had toys for the kids, were super kid friendly, and the owner took the time to help my 5 yr old daughter finish her small craft project. They are pet friendly, and their two dogs will come "check in" on the campsites. My kids loved the dogs, they were so nice!!

The campsites were good size and the view was absolutely incredible!

My hubby & I wanted to use our RV for the first time up in the northwoods of MN. We wanted to be sure to stay somewhere with facilities just incase something went wrong with our camper. We also had to stay somewhere that was pet friendly.
After doing some quick research, I discovered this campground/resort.

The gunlfint pines resort has a great website. We found everything was just as presented on their site.

What gorgeous country up in this "neck of the woods"!.
Gunflint Pines Resort is on gunflint lake. Canada is just across the lake and the boundry waters are very close.

Most of the campsites are very private - literally in the woods and most are also on the lake. The facilities there include a general store that has pretty much everything and anything you can need including internet access (cell phones do not work up there). You do not have to bring food as the store has a huge selection of things to prepare or you can even eat at the snack bar. There are also many supplies you may need, clothing and gifts. There is a shower/bath house and laundry facilities also on the property.

The owners Sheri and Bob are wonderful. We had a little flood in our camper and they helped us out. They are also very informative about the area offered suggestions of things to do.

The resort is truly pet friendly - which is wonderful for us! Everyone had to keep their dogs on leashes which makes things worry free. Their dogs - sota and shadow are great. Obviously this is their home so they are not on the leash but they are so well behaved and friendly so not an issue. Sota visits the campsites - she is a true welcoming committee and was very appreciated by our malamute as the two became good friends. They spent a good portion of the day together just hanging out at our campsite!

About 1/2 mile down the road is the gunflnt lodge - there is a full restuarant and bar there - so if you want to "go out" you don't have too far to walk. We didn't try the food but we did have a few drinks - the bartendar sure had the tequilla sunrises down pat!

We definately plan to go back to this resort. They are open all year round and their cabins looked wonderful. We hope to go up for a little winter R&R up at this gem in the northwoods!

Love the Gunflint Trail area and enjoyed our stay at this campground!

Though the area is beautiful and many like to rough-it, we enjoyed the best of both worlds, having the luxury of an on-site store with many groceries, bait, candy, gifts/clothing, and the option to get a pizza or ice cream cone or burger.

Alsp enjoyed a clean shower/bath house.

The owners and staff were helpful with our questions and inquiries about the area and places to visit and where to eat.

Thanks for a great friendly stay! Enjoyed the on-site dogs too :)

On the south shore of Gunflint Lake this resort has something for everyone and every budget. Tent camping, RV, Camper Cabins, Cottages, A-Frames. The Baker's and crew make everyone feel welcome and they go out of their way to accommodate. I have stayed in camper cabin 11 twice - it's bug-free, weather proof, comfy and spartan, but very affordable - the showers and toilets are a short walk. It makes a great base for day hiking, canoeing on the lake, fishing or what ever. The camper cabin it's self is not a destination, but a very affordable base to carry-out your vacation plans. There are 4 or 5 camper cabins and number 11 is set-off by itself - the others are not, so keep that in mind.

I was there shortly after the wildfires - the south shore and resort surroundings was untouched, but the view across the lake is pretty crispy - lots of really cool hiking in the burnt areas.

Check out their website to get ALL of the great services and possiblities at Gunflint Pines.
