Find the Head of Every Fisherman's Tale at Big Timber Lodge

Write yourself into the century-long story of Big Timber Lodge, a Minnesota headwaters resort! Simple comforts collide with the one-hundred year glory of an old log lodge to bring you the ultimate Minnesota Northwoods experience. Charming knotty pine housekeeping cabins with crackling fireplaces, spacious decks, and stunning lake views are threaded through the tree-studded lakeshore on 10 lazy acres of Minnesota woodland. Avid anglers delight in the 3rd Crow Wing Lake fishing, the kids in the sandcastle-land of the Big Timber Lodge beach, while everyone else transforms into the ultimate happy campers on the Big Timber Lodge lakeshore resort!

Cabins, Cottages, and Chalets
Beach with paddle boats & kayakas You don't have to drive to the beach when you stay at Big Timber Lodge on Crow Wing Lake. Right before your lake cabin is a large, sandy swimming beach without all the noisy distractions of boat traffic. Swim these shallow waters, sun on the shore, or boat and kayak atop the mirror-like surface of this crystal-clear Crow Wing Lake chain.
Nice Bass  Having fun fishing with family Big Timber Lodge has been the North Star, guiding travelers for a full century to a place where memories are made.

Or venture into the Great Outdoors to Crow Wing Lakes beaches and enjoy fishing, boating, and more!
Sunset off the dock Nature lovers of all ages will delight in a getaway at Big Timber Lodge. Boat traffic begone, you can hear the lonely loons by summer sunset and watch the autumn waterbugs dance in waters uninterrupted by noisy motors and spewing jetskis. Go ahead and get your feet wet and take out a paddle boat or walk the gently sloping sands into the gradual shallow waters of the 3rd Crow Wing Lake.

Sample the fruitful fish offerings of Crow Wing Chain of lakes on lucky #3. These four connected lakes hold over 1800 acres of water and miles of shoreline. Hook yourself a state fish in these Walleye waters or grab yourself a scrappy Large Mouth Bass, Northern Pike predator, prolific Crappie, or a Bluegill or Pumpkinseed Sunfish!
