After this year’s fishing opener we’ve heard non-stop about how much fun people had! Check out the feedback by looking at our Facebook to read the stories, people already can’t wait to come back! Well, it is walleye season of course and we really can’t think of anything tastier to get excited about. Use that opening day for an updated profile picture or keep to hang on your wall! When you’re ready to set the pole and net down for a few hours consider checking out the area around Northland Lodge! When you’re staying with us you won’t have a lack of things to do. Our lodge offers many amenities but if you want to veer off site–you’ll have plenty of activities to choose from! Berry picking, gambling, tours, golfing, state parks, and more! Wherever you go, you’ll have the time of your life!
Shopping small is always interesting and we know if you’ve ever gone berry picking you know what we mean when we say instant gratification. Blueberry Meadows offers baked goods, canned or preserved food, crafts and/or woodworking items, herbs, fresh fruits, and fresh vegetables. Lavalier’s Berry Patch offers strawberries, cherries, blueberries, apples, pumpkins and other garden produce we sell. Last, Lunemann’s Luney Berries Strawberry offers strawberries, bakery products, maple syrup, jam/jelly/spreadable fruit, wild rice, gift shop, and canned goods. Different products are offered at different points in the year so you’ll always have something new and interesting to try.
On vacation, sometimes our competitive sides show, especially if you’re booking with a friend group. Whether you want to win some money or it’s just for fun, we’ve got options for everyone. Get ready to compete against your friends and/or family at a competitive price at Thunder Alley XL. With a bowling alley, 18 holes of mini golf, and an arcade there is something for everyone. If not mini golf there are TONS of different 18 hole courses in the area including; Eagle Ridge Golf Club, Pokegama Golf Club, Sugarbrooke Golf Club, Blueberry Hills Golf Club and many more! Looking to up the stakes? There are an abundance of casinos nearby. Cedar Lakes Casino, White Oak Casino, and Northern Lights Casino are all within an hour driving distance. You might win enough to pay for the trip! No matter what type of gaming experience you’re looking for, you’ll find it fairly close by!
What's better than seeing and learning new things? Hikes, tours, and museums are food for the mind, body and soul. Schoolcraft State Park, on the banks of the Mississippi River, offers a beautiful 2 mile hike that is long enough to enjoy the scenery but not too long that you’re too worn out to enjoy the rest of the day. Any level hiker will fall in love. For those with littles try the children's discovery museum. A mix of science, arts, and humanities that is sure to captivate your kids’ minds. With loads of fun activities for your children, the museum is unique and educational. We’ve also got THE definitive museum for the area’s break out star, the Judy Garland museum! The museum hosts thoughtfully curated exhibits and artifacts including the original Carriage featured in “The Wizard of Oz,” a Dorothy Gale test dress worn by Judy, and many of her personal items collected over the last 40 years, all displayed within her childhood home! So many things to see in the area.
As you can see Northland Lodge is surrounded by fun places and things to do for everyone! We know you’ll find something that’s the perfect fit for your plans.
