1. Great Time At Club Cragun’s
We had a chance to spend the weekend at Cragun’s Resort about five years ago. The kids had a great time at Club Cragun’s doing activities and crafts, while mom got a much needed massage. I think it’s time to do it again… although this time the kids will be trying new activities, maybe a dog sled ride? Ice bowling? Or some hot chocolate by the fire? Minnesota Winter here we come!

2. And Another One
All our memories from our Cragun’s vacations are fantastic! We started coming before we had kids. We now have three and have continued the tradition. I often think about the excitement in the kids eyes when it’s time to go to the pool. Since we do come in the winter, we use the pool a lot. Our regular room has us walking down many hallways. The girls love to say “And another one” each time we reach another hallway. The excitement keeps building until we reach the pool. Then game on! We swim and splash and squeal and just have a blast! When the weekend is over, they will talk about it for the next 12 months! We love how Cragun’s feels like home. We are comfortable no matter what we are doing, and always feel welcome. Whether swimming at the pool, taking a horse drawn trolley ride or enjoying the welcoming hot cocoa and marshmallows. We can’t wait for our next vacation to you!

3. Awesome Time
I attended a conference for work a few years ago. My children, parents, siblings, nieces and nephews joined me and we made a three day vacation out of it. We had an awesome time swimming and enjoying outdoor activities.

4. No Better Place To Stay
Me and my two brothers have been going to the Brainerd Jaycees Ice Fishing Extravaganza contest on Gull for over 20 years. We’ve stood in almost knee deep water in 45 degrees ice fishing in short sleeve shirts, all the way down to 65 degrees below zero windshield arctic tundra a few years back. During these times we have had many an overnight/weekend stay at Cragun’s over the past 20 years. There is no better place to stay on the lake! And trust me we have stayed at them all! Now my son has started to come along as a family tradition with me and my two brothers. The hospitality the warmth and comfort that Cragun’s and their staff has always provided for us whether we were staying there as guests or just there for dining and warming up after the contest, or if we were there for a snowmobile weekend, Cragun’s and their staff has always made us feel welcome as if we were family. The system they have set up for the Ice Fishing Contest stay is the best! You get a free Welcome Party the night before, they shuttle you to the lake and back after the contest and you have a nice toasty warm room and lodge to stay and eat and gather with family and friends! Great family memories are made at a great place like Cragun’s. We plan to carry on our tradition with another generation now with my son hopefully for the next 20 years. Thanks Cragun’s for all your great hospitality and thanks for making us feel like family and thanks for helping us make more family traditions and make great memories.
