Family enjoying the fall activities at the Pumpkin Fest.

We love fall here at Cragun’s Resort and we want to share our favorite fall activities with you and your family. The Pumpkin Fest is a celebration of everything fall. Starting on MEA weekend (October 17th), guests at Cragun’s Resort will be able to participate in Pumpkin Fest! Pumpkin fest will include fun, family-friendly fall activities like horse drawn trolley rides and pumpkin decorating. Kids can also enjoy exploring a corn maze and a corn box. Additional details about these fun fall activities are provided below:

The Pumpkin Fest will be set up on the grassy knoll by the Outdoor Pool on the south end of the resort. Decorate your own pumpkin, participate in our fall family games, choose a craft you would like to do, jump in the corn box and lose yourself in our corn maze. The Pumpkin Fest will be open each Saturday from 1:00-3:00 from October 18 through November 1.

Cragun’s Fall Fun Weekends also include our famous horse drawn trolley rides that will take you on a leisurely ride along the lake shore pulled by a majestic team of Clydesdales. Kurt, the driver, will regale you with stories throughout the ride. The horse drawn trolley rides will depart in front of the Oaks Reunion House starting at 1:00 p.m. on Saturdays. The rides will continue until 3:00 pm. On Saturdays we will also be offering Vacation Creations at the indoor pool (4:00-4:30 pm), family game night or photo scavenger hunt in the evening as well as family karaoke in the Bear Trap Bar.

On Sundays, starting October 19, Cragun’s is introducing PUMP IT UP. Pump It Up will run from 8:00 am until Noon on Sunday in Cragun’s Sports Centre with new bounce houses, Wii games, and other family entertainment. This is the time for everyone to burn off all of that extra energy before jumping in the car for the ride home.

Don’t forget that all of our Fall Fun Weekends start with a Welcome Party, dinner buffet and Bingo on Friday evenings. The Welcome Party starts at 5:30 at the indoor pool and everyone is invited to the dinner buffet, also served poolside. At 8:00 p.m. everyone’s favorite family game starts – Bingo! Win prizes and have a great time competing against each other.

Throughout the weekend, enjoy relaxing time in front of the fireplace in your lodge room or cabin. Check out Cragun’s huge indoor pool, whirlpool and sauna. If the weather’s nice, take a bike ride along the East Gull Lake Trail or the Paul Bunyan Trail. Sample the treats at Cragun’s Snack Bar, Poolside on Saturdays. Cragun’s Fall Fun Weekends are all about family time, family fun and making memories that will last a lifetime.
