On Scenic Bowstring Lake

As the owners of Snug Harbor Resort & Campground, we have set out to make this resort a special place in the sun for you.  We want this to be a retreat based upon the slower-paced activities and leisurely days that you knew in your childhood; a place where you can get back in touch with yourself, your family and your friends; and a place and a time you will remember and want to come back to again and again.

Summer in the north woods of Minnesota holds the promise of warm sunny days to play in the lake, get a good tan, hit the bike trail, or just sit around under a tree and read a book. As you look out over the lake there is a good chance you’ll see a Bald Eagle or an Osprey take a fish from the lake… a sight you’ll never forget.

Cool clear nights bring out more stars than you ever thought possible, accompanied by the unique serenade of the loons.  If you’re lucky you will get to see the Northern Lights… and you are going to sleep like a baby.

Snug Harbor Resort & Campground is located on the shores of Bowstring Lake in northeastern Minnesota, and is completely surrounded by the Chippewa National Forest.  The resort is 222 miles north of Minneapolis and St. Paul,  37 miles northwest of Grand Rapids, Minnesota, and 22 miles north of Deer River, Minnesota. 

The resort is open from May through September and offers seven lake-level cabins and five full hook-up camping sites.  Six of the cabins are two bedroom and one is a three bedroom.  The cabins feature modern conveniences and all have kitchens and baths.  Each cabin also has its own deck with patio chairs and a charcoal grill.

Bowstring Lake is widely recognized as one of the Top Walleye Fishing Lakes in Minnesota.  At just over 9,200  acres in size, Bowstring Lake provides tremendous multi-species fishing opportunities. Walleye, northern, jumbo perch, and crappie can all be readily caught here. And nothing compares to the views of the shoreline as seen from a boat or pontoon. 

Take a look around our website, then pick up the phone and give us a call.  We’d love to have you spend your vacation with us.

Your hosts,
