Greetings from sunny Lake Florida!
We’re Bob & Connie Dickerson, owners of the resort which was started by Bob’s great grandparents in 1924. We are one of only a few 4th generation resorts operating in Minnesota. We have 13 cabins, a beautiful sand beach, clean water and fun for all ages. Our beach and grounds are very level, giving easy access to young and old alike. We offer a place where family and friends can join together in an atmosphere of warmth and happy experiences away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and work.
When you arrive you will be greeted by window boxes overflowing with flowers and a plate of fresh baked chocolate chip cookies in your cabin. On Sunday morning we serve fresh homemade donuts, coffee & juice to give us time to get acquainted. It’s a yummy treat for young & old! Monday night is our resort Pizza Picnic. Be careful how many pieces you order, Bob’s pretty handy with a pizza cutter! Children have been known to eat as many as 30 pieces! Thursday night is our hayride for the children followed by a campfire, roasting marshmallows and making s’mores.”
