This Northern MN resort is a great place for quiet relaxing vacations and amazing fishing. Our family has always had a great Minnesota fishing trip on Sand Lake, always catching our limit of walleye.

Large portions of Sand lake are held in state and federal hands, giving you miles of undeveloped shoreline to explore making sure you'll get that northwoods feel.
