The wooded paradise of Sunset Bay Resort is your canvas for creating a fantastic family getaway. Among more than 15 acres of trees, lawns and serenity, the resort features 500 feet of sandy shoreline, a safe swimming area and everything you need to enjoy it: beach and lawn game equipment is plentiful and paddleboats are free! The fishing is great on the shallow Dead Lake, and a fish cleaning facility is right on site!


Maplewood and Glendalough State Parks, and Inspiration Peak are not far from Sunset Bay, and there are many opportunities for viewing or photographing wildlife, especially birds and wildflowers. Also nearby is Minnesota’s first official birding trail, the Pine to Prairie Trail, which spans 223 miles across northwestern Minnesota, from Warroad to Fergus Falls.


The 7900-acre Dead Lake offers 36 miles miles of shoreline, with structure that makes it one of the best for fall fishing. You'll love the sandy swimming area at Sunset Bay Resort. Bring your boat!
