Cragun’s Resort on Gull Lake has been one of Minnesota’s premier family reunion resorts since 1940. We also host class reunions, birthday parties and anniversaries! Families love Cragun’s size, service and recreations on the shore of beautiful Gull Lake in the famed Brainerd Lakes Area.
Why Cragun’s Is One Of The Best Family Reunion Destination…
A trained Cragun’s coordinator will help you plan it all – from food and fun to the smallest detail.
Choose from a variety of lakeside accommodations – reunion houses, beach cabins, whirlpool suites, lakeview rooms and more. All overlook Gull Lake!
Many of the larger family reunions are planning 1-3 years in advance of their event. Cragun’s will book and hold rooms for your group up to 3 years in advance with definite room holds and deposits determined on an individual basis based on size of group and type of lodging required.
Check-ins are easy with Cragun’s welcome and registration areas. Activity agendas can be prepared for all group members.
Enjoy scheduled activities planned especially for your group: golf outings, lake cruises, fishing contests, trolley rides, lakeside bonfires and much more!
Private gathering areas are available for all your group activities.
Scenic lakeside picnic and BBQ areas are available.
Special celebration meals are a specialty at Cragun’s.

“Just want to send a note of THANK YOU!!! I’m still hearing from family about how much fun they had and how wonderful Cragun’s was. Here are some of the comments: “The resort was perfect, plenty to do, big rooms, good food, and on a great lake.” “I got 3 hours of complaining how they “didn’t want to leave Minnesota” on the drive back to the Twin Cities”. “I’m now hearing talk amongst the Charlton “grapevine” that we’ve found “The Reunion Place” and that a return trip makes a lot of sense in 2-3 years.” “What an amazing vacation we had! I went to work and told everybody who even slightly inquired how MN was and told them what a terrific time we all had! Nobody could believe it! I think they all thought I would come back looking like a giant mosquito bite!” Again, thank you so much for your help and even putting up with me. I get the impression we’ll be back.”

“Family reunions at Craguns’s are fabulous – there’s something everyone can enjoy, from toddler to Grandma!”
Joyce Statz, Austin, TX
“We just had a family reunion here, spending a very fun and relaxing week. Our age range is 73 to 6, and we all had lots to do. My family has been coming here for 45 years but it’s more than our sentimental favorite – we find the service to be excellent and the facilities to be very good”
Karen G, Ft. Wayne, IN
“Cragun’s has offered the best service and accommodations that our family has enjoyed in organizing 16 family reunions across the country. Everyone had a great time and felt “at home” at Cragun’s. The staff and service are beyond expectation – from planning our event to the activities and entertainment, delicious meals and attentive housekeeping.”
