kid friendly vacation

Bring the kids up north and see the delight on their faces as they discover clean air, clear water and endless options for good, outdoorsy fun!

The Minnesota Northwoods and lakes provide a venue for activities that are appealing for kids of all ages. Get your family connected without the wi-fi connection.

Nature’s Water Park

The Minnesota Northwoods are a little slice of paradise in the summertime and we’ve got you covered when it comes to family-friendly outdoor fun. Kids will burn off energy splashing and swimming in our pristine, secluded lakes. Many of our resorts offer large water toys like floating trampolines and docks, or recreation options such as paddle boards, hydra bikes, kayaks, canoes and paddle boards to name a few.

Minnesota Family Tradition

We constantly hear from our guests that they have turned their Minnesota resort vacation into an annual family tradition. It’s not just the “Minnesota Nice” talking when our resort owners say it’s like a big family reunion welcoming back return guests year after year. There’s nothing quite like gathering along the shores of a private lake resort to start a new tradition and make lasting sun-kissed, waterlogged memories. Cabins to accommodate size.

Rainy Day Activities

Our Minnesota Northwoods resorts are located near the “big little town” of Bemidji, Minnesota. Bemidji is not only the birthplace of the legendary Paul Bunyan and Babe the blue ox, but also the cultural hub of northern Minnesota full of kid-friendly activities. If the weather’s not cooperating during your vacation, hop in the car and head downtown. The kids will enjoy exploring the Headwaters Science Center, painting their own pottery, and sampling fudge at the chocolate shop.

Many of our resorts feature a lodge or commons area complete with good old-fashioned fun such as board games, billiards, ping-pong and more!
