1. Three Fabulous Summer Vacations

We have spent three fabulous family summer vacations at Cragun’s. We’re not sure what’s going on, but we have yet to meet even one non-cheery staff member! From the front desk, to housekeeping, to restaurant staff, to marina staff everyone is consistently over-the-top gracious! Last year it was all about the water tubing, boating, fishing. While Bruce was an awesome fishing guide (many fish were caught the next morning on the lake due to his insight), we think he missed his calling–he should definitely consider photography! Thanks Bruce, for a great family photo and thanks Cragun’s for always making us feel so welcome!

2. Something For Everyone
Our family and my wife’s parents and her sister’s family met for a family reunion on a 4th of July weekend two years ago and they still talk about how there was something for everyone.We went golfing and others went boating and swimming. We all enjoyed the food and fireworks. My wife and I also come every year that the NAIFA insurance meeting is held at Cragun’s. We tell everyone about how we enjoy our stays.

3. Military Appreciation Weekend

For the last two years, my children and I have stayed at Cragun’s for their military appreciation weekend, and it’s quickly becoming a family tradition. We love it there!

It’s hard to say what our specific favorite memory is, since there are so many fun things to do at Cragun’s. Alex enjoys the crane machine and the arcade. Benny really enjoys all the water toys that are available to rent, such as the Hydrobikes and the kayaks. He also enjoys the fireplace in our suite. I can’t keep Emma away from the indoor pool and she loves to play table tennis. There really is something for everyone here.

The biggest highlight of the trip is getting to go out on the pontoon for a few hours of fishing. Gull Lake is gorgeous, with lots of bays and small islands. This year, we found the mother lode of rock bass and were pulling them out of the water as soon as we could bait our hooks. We also got quite a few pumpkin-seed sunnies and perch. It was not uncommon for three or four of us to have a fish, all at the same time! It sure kept Mom busy, throwing back all the fish and getting fresh minnows and night crawlers for everyone.

The other thing we look forward to is our first meal when we arrive at Cragun’s. We joke that this is our idea of “roughing it”– other families might go camping and have campfires; we sit by the roaring fireplace in our room and roast bratwurst and hot dogs. Then, the s’mores! Nothing beats s’mores with golden toasted marshmallows; but if one of the munchkins gets impatient, he or she will make a quick batch in the microwave.

What I cherish the most about the military appreciation weekend is the quality time we get to spend together as a family, relaxing and having fun. I’m a single mom who works full time and is also in the National Guard, so quality family time can be scarce. Cragun’s Resort recognizes not only the soldiers’ military service, but also the sacrifices of the families as well. My children serve just as much as I do; but they are in the silent ranks and oftentimes don’t receive the thanks and recognition that I do. Cragun’s provides a great resort, nice restaurant, lots of activities, and the wonderful staff at the marina. But what we appreciate the most is the valuable gift of time and a chance to bond, reconnect, and grow as a family.

4. Fourth of July Week

Fourth of July week has been our extended family vacation for many years with you. We have grown into adulthood our children have grown into adulthood and now our grandchildren are growing up with the wonderful memories your lovely resort has to offer. Every year we wonder how long it will continue, but it seems to never end as this is the one vacation we all young and old alike look forward to every year.
