"I had the pleasure of staying and playing golf at Cragun’s Resort and would recommend this spectacular facility to everyone who loves to relax in first class comfort and enjoy a round of golf on a challenging course."
Brad James, U of M Golf Coach
"Absolutely great golf!"
R. Rogers, Redding CA
"It was the first year our 4-year-old could attend Camp Cragun's and he loved it. We didn't know if he would stay there without us, but by the end he didn't want to leave! He's excited to go there again on our next trip. We started going to Cragun's each year starting when our first son was 9 months old. Now it's our family tradition."
Robert Kirchberg, Woodbury, MN
"Well deserving of its 5-star rating. My favorite golf destination in Minnesota and the friendly staff always makes us feel welcome. I organize group golf trips and they are the best facility to work with that I have found."
"Cragun’s is always an exceptional family experience. This is our 5th trip in the last 15 months. We enjoy all of the great family activities, the food, the lake and the beautiful scenery and the very friendly staff. Don’t change a thing. We love Cragun’s!"
Chris and Melonee Chmiel, Woodbury, MN
"We enjoyed all of the organized entertainment that was provided for our Summer Getaway… pontoon rides, trolley ride, wild animal show, magic show, bonfire and movie on the beach. The kids attended Camp and enjoyed it. We mainly interacted with the staff at the Marina and they were great. Thank you for a wonderful family vacation."
Kevin Kelley, Bloomington, MN
"We came here mainly to golf and we were not disappointed. The courses were fantastic!"
Dave Knapp, Andover, MN
"All of the resort staff impressed me with how friendly they were. At the front desk, the dining room, the marina, the golf course, even the maintenance staff - everyone was more than welcoming. We had a great time and look forward to our next stay!"
"The beautiful location, the lovely atmosphere of family fun, the bonfires, boats, bikes were all my favorite parts of my stay at Cragun's. But my most favorite was THE FOOD!! The Hungry Gull, Legacy and breakfast at the Lodge. Keep up the good work!"
Sharon Fallon, Madison, WI
"Best vacation for the money-great family gathering spot."
Mari Minard, Apple Valley, MN
"We came from Winnipeg, Canada, for a relaxing family weekend. We had a great time! The staff is fantastic here."
N. Gouliquer, Winnepeg, Canada
"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."
Dick Lafean, MN
"This is our first visit to Cragun’s Resort. The service has been excellent at the resort and the Legacy Golf Courses. Everyone is very helpful and friendly. It was a real treat to be met at your car, given a golf cart, and have your clubs put on the cart. At the end of you game, met by a friendly face and had your clubs wiped off and put in your car. This will be a memorable vacation and hopefully we’ll be back."
Danny Fousrge, Algona, IA

“Best package deals in the Brainerd area for golf, food and lodging. Well worth the price.”
“We have booked a winter weekend for our family almost every year. It is a great place...there are many activities for both adults and children...lodging accommodations are roomy, and we are not at all cramped in our cabin. This is a great value for our money.”
