For Memories that Last a Lifetime, Cragun's Resort is Second to None!

The guests of Cragun's Resort on Gull Lake have been making "friends and memories" since 1940. Cragun's offers the amenities of Minnesota's largest four-season resort and the personalized service of a family-owned operation. Visit for a family vacation, host a business meeting, or throw a wedding reception. You come for the lakeside setting and that's what you'll get -- all lodging overlooks Gull Lake, the half-mile sandy beach and marina. Enjoy Legacy Courses' 54 holes of golf; both of its 18-hole Legacy courses were awarded Golf Digest's 2008-2009 "Best Places to Play." Delight in an indoor sports center, indoor and outdoor pools, kids' programs, Gull Lake Spa and more. It's no surprise Cragun's is "Property of the Year" and achieved Audubon International Signature Sanctuary status!

All-Inclusive

At Cragun's Resort, you'll find endless possibilities all for the best value of any Minnesota resort! With their prime location on Gull Lake you're just steps away from enjoying waterskiing, boating and swimming. If you'd rather stay on land, then the indoor Sports Center, tennis courts, and hiking trails are your calling. Plus, with a luxury spa, and two 18-hole golf courses, there's definitely something here for everyone to enjoy!

Cabins, Cottages, and Chalets

Lakeside Minnesota cabins are a great place to begin building forever memories. In a park-like setting with a playground, grills and on or near the sandy beach, cabins are fully-furnished and most have full kitchens. Balconies and patios overlooking Gull Lake ensure you'll never lose sight of what you came for.

Conference and Meeting

Cragun's Resort features an ideal destination for your next Minnesota business retreat. Their Personal Meeting Planner will gladly help you plan an even that will impress your team and clients. With a variety of great onsite activities, Cragun's offers a place that lets you mix pleasure with business for a successful event.

Family

The good times start on a reversible par-3 course, designed for family golfing, and continue onto Gull Lake, in the indoor sports center and indoor and outdoor pools. Mom and dad can enjoy Gull Lake Spa or the two "adult" 18-hole golf courses, while kids' and teens' programs provide entertainment for the younger set. And with access to just about any outdoor recreation imaginable, there's something for everyone at Cragun's!

Family Reunion

Modern cabins, lakeside rooms and a reunion house can comfortably host your family reunion party. For 60-plus years, it has been known as a great and relaxing place that everyone can enjoy. Formal or casual, this is the place for your reunion! A reunion coordinator helps you plan each detail to make your get-together a success!

Fishing

Great fish stories are spun on Gull Lake -- chock full of northern, bass, walleye and panfish -- and other legendary lakes in the area. Begin yours on one of Cragun's fully guided fishing trips, led by anglers with 30-plus years of guiding experience. Or, just rent a boat from the marina and embark on your own fishing adventure.

Golf

Golf enthusiasts of all ages will love a getaway at Cragun's on Gull Lake! Both of Cragun's 18-hole Legacy courses were awarded Golf Digest's 2008-2009 "Best Places to Play" with a 5-Star rating awarded to the Dutch Legacy and a 4 1/2-Star awarded to Bobby's Legacy. Only 23 other courses in the USA have received this prestigious 5-Star honor.

Honeymoon

A Honeymoon getaway is a special occasion neither of you will ever forget! A room with a wood-burning fireplace overlooking Gull Lake is just the beginning. Add dinner for two, a bottle of wine, cocktails in the Bear Lounge, and horse-drawn trolley rides to make your honeymoon something truly special!

Lake

There's no place better for your Minnesota lakeside vacation than Cragun's! A full-service marina offers ski boats, pontoons, fish and game licenses and anything else your water-loving heart desires. Guided fishing trips show you the ropes of Gull Lake's legendary waters and with a half-mile sandy beach to boot, Cragun's proudly plays host to "more fun on the water."
