The Little Berg Lake, The Bigger Moose Lake & Swimming:
Our lake is small and FUN, we leave kayaks, and a canoe for guests to use for free with their stay. In the dock house, we stock various life jackets and fishing gear for guests to use freely. The lake is teaming with turtles, a beaver dam and huts, migrating swans, geese, perch, various pan fish, and other treasures to paddle around and find to spot in the water. Our lake is NOT for swimming, there are too many weeds.
NEWS : Beavers keep the lake dammed up and they have given us a bigger deeper lake. :) Paddle to the dam area and check out their handiwork, stay off the dam as we are protecting it and it will break,
Moose Lake is 1 Mile down the road and larger than our Berg Lake, small boats can be launched there (not a concrete launch) and it is great fishing.
Swimming by us:
A) Itasca State park just 20-25 minutes away has a beautiful beach with bathrooms and showers and the park is a great place to visit too.
B) There is another swimming beach in Bagley just 12 minutes away. Lake Lamond Beach.
