Northern Minnesota: The Way It Was Meant to Be.

Rediscover that nostalgic old-time resort feeling with a relaxing stay at the rustic and beautiful Campfire Bay Resort, located on 1,035-acre Fish Trap Lake, just two hours north of the Twin Cities. Canoe the gentle morning waters, fish for trophy walleye, build a sandcastle on the beach, golf on the nearby 18-hole championship course, or play some volleyball. Once the sun goes down, unwind in a secluded one-to four-bedroom cabin, featuring incredible views of the resort's splendid Brainerd Lakes environment. But, before you call it a night, make sure enjoy some delicious campfire donuts next to the evening bonfire - this is Campfire Bay, after all!
