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 lodgings overlook 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, and more.
