Fourth of July
July 4th is a really fun week at Lost Acres Resort. We have kids activities including nature scavenger hunts, medallion hunt, and crafts. On the 4th we have a parade around the resort and the golf carts, bicycles, and 4-wheelers are decorated for the occasion. It is not unusual to see a water gun emerge during the parade and there’s plenty of candy being thrown too. Young and old participate or enjoy watching and seeing the decorative carts. We also have a potluck picnic followed by a bean bag competition each year. And, to finish the celebration there is a local fireworks show. It is a very festive time at the resort.
Fishing - Cass Lake Chain of Lakes
Kitchi Lake is one of the best kept fishing secrets in northern Minnesota. The lake provides water access to all the best known lakes on the Mississippi chain, including Cass Lake. This provides access to thousands of acres of great fishing. Walleye, Perch, Northern, Muskie, Crappie, Bass and Panfish are abundant.
Hunting - Chippewa National Forest
Our resort is located in the beautiful Chippewa National Forest, which provides easy access to thousands of acres of public land for deer, grouse, and bear hunting. The abundance of wild rice on the connecting rivers is also very attractive to migrating ducks and other waterfowl.
