Northern Minnesota Family Resorts
Spend your next family vacation at Joe's Lodge!
Lodge started in 1924 as a fishing camp, it doesn’t end there!
There is nothing to compare
to the uniqueness of a northern Minnesota
At the resort, we offer sandy shoreline for swimming and other water
activities. The WATER BONGO is a huge draw to kids of all ages! The paddle boats, kayak,
hydrobikes, and other water toys are yours to
use free of charge. There is a
small playground, tennis court with basketball hoops, horseshoes, a game room with video games, pool table, piano, and juke box, satellite
TV and movies in the lodge for those rainy, kicking back days. Evenings
around the campfire are always a hit. Our 40 acres include hiking trails
that extend into the national forest land for the hiker amongst us,
the birding group, and the nature lover. Arrange with us for a canoe
trip down the river or a pontoon trip out onto Star Island, where you
can enjoy Lake Windigo, a lake within a lake.
Adventure out and enjoy the quaint shops of Walker or the diverseness
in our nearby regional center and college town of Bemidji, walk across
the Mississippi’s beginning at Lake Itasca, enjoy an animal park
or a water slide, golf our many courses, learn about the culture of
the Leech Lake Band of Ojibwa in Cass Lake, or take your chances at
the casino. The list is endless! Hunting is second nature here and plentiful.
Winter finds a quiet, peaceful setting to enjoy the crisp, cool days
for snowmobiling the hundreds of miles of trails, cross country or downhill
skiing, ice fishing, and viewing the stars and northern lights.
