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.

Testimonials from Guests at Driftwood Resort

Howard & Ava McGill from Flora, Indiana
If you are looking for a relaxing vacation with good fishing, beautiful scenery and exciting wildlife, you need to go to Driftwood Resort on Big Sand Lake in Northern Minnesota. We have been vacationing on Sand Lake for 35 years and they have all been at Driftwood Resort. All of our family have vacationed at Driftwood. The cabins are spotless and the hosts are wonderful. They are our extended family. Their daughters have become our "grand daughters". The lake is gorgeous with little boat traffic which makes it a pleasure to fish. We have always caught our limit and return home with more then enough fish to share with friends. You must consider Driftwood Resort for your next relaxing fun vacation.

Rick Sellers(family of 4) from Austin, Texas
Our family has vacationed at Driftwood Resort 6 times over the past 10 years.  We gather with family from across the country for a week of visiting.  There are 3 generations gathered together enjoying the time.  Cousins have come without their parents to enjoy this time together in a relaxed atmosphere. The resort is a haven from the pace of everyday life.  The cabins are cozy, clean, and well maintained.  The beds are comfortable and in better shape than many motels or hotels we have stayed at during are trips from Texas.  There are no televisions, telephones, radios or electronic devices in the cabins; this allows the family to enjoy nature. There is swimming, boating, fishing, and lawn games to enjoy.  There is a pot luck 1 night for people to get together and enjoy good food and company.  The office keeps a list of activities in the area.  Also, there is candy, ice cream and such for sale for children and adults to satisfy a sweet tooth. We enjoy that pets are not allowed.  This provides a clean relaxed atmosphere for all to enjoy.  There is a dog and some cats that belong to Chris and Stacy the resort owners.  You will not notice the animals, unless you seek them out.

The Driftwood Resort and your family are such a pure pleasure to know and be a part of.  I really thank the lord for letting me find your resort online.  I love the fishing; once in a while you get a lunker, but I love the fact that we catch lots of fish all the time. The cabins are just the right amount of rustic and modern and the views from any cabin are just beautiful, from the sunrise in the morning to sunset in the evening.  I have fished in Minnesota and Canada for most if my life and for a totally fun and relaxing experience, I cannot remember any place that comes as close to perfect as Driftwood.  Chris and Stacy are as perfect a host and hostess as You will find. Their two beautiful daughters are just a joy to see help with chores and play around the resort. I believe the simple fact that I have driven almost 3200 miles round trip three times in two years speaks volumes about Driftwood and its owners. I would recommend this resort to any one wanting a quality vacation at a very affordable price. (Yes I will be there this year in June and if possible in August.)

We hope to see you as one of our guests sometime soon.  Please give us a call to check availability at 1-877-826-5934
