2. All-time Favorite Family Vacation?
3. Best Easter Ever?
4. Ear to Ear Smiles on Our Faces?
Our family of 11 children have been coming to Cragun’s for the past 15 years. We come the end of July or early August from as far as England and San Francisco. There are about 30 grandchildren which make for over 50 total. We love the Oaks as headquarters for our meals, Ping-pong tournaments, pool, TV and all the other great facilities. Us oldsters stay in the more quiet sleep quarters in the hotel. There are a lot of things for young and old at Cragun’s — water sports, fishing, beach volleyball, etc.
We book for 5-6 years in advance to ensure our usual time with our children and their families.
Thank you Cragun’s for treating us so well all these years.
We look forward to 2013 and years to come.

One of our family’s all-time favorite family vacations is our Cragun’s vacation at Easter. It was a year when the weather was far from spring-like, but that didn’t diminish our family vacation, thanks to Cragun’s. Our children enjoyed the kids’ camp activities, we had fun playing outside in the soggy weather, my son and I both enjoyed a spa massage (and he almost fell asleep it was so relaxing), meals were tasty. There was plenty to do and time to just kick back and relax; the vacation appealed to everyone, including a teen, pre-teen and nine year old. Sure, we could have gone somewhere warm, but we didn’t need to. Our Cragun’s getaway provided a fun time for all of us and we still reminisce and laugh about our fun time. As I write this memory, makes me want to be at Cragun’s again and soon. Thanks to Cragun’s and their staff for helping create a fun memory for my family.

My family spent Easter weekend at Cragun’s and had the best celebration ever. We enjoyed every minute of it from the Welcome Reception and bingo, to the wonderful Easter egg hunt on the beach and the Sunday brunch. The horse drawn carriage was a hit with my 8 year old daughter who got to sit with the driver. It was one of the best holidays ever for our family, Thank you Cragun Family for sharing this holiday with us!

My family has been visiting Cragun’s since I was a little girl. As I look through old Polaroid pictures of me in pig tails feeding the ducks, my heart smiles with joy because now as an adult I’m the snapping pics of my children feeding ducks as Grandma and Grandpa do. It is one of very few traditions I’ve kept up with. As a single mom I always find it hard to get by, but coming up with the money to make a small getaway vacation is worth every penny to my family! I cherish the memories so dearly and when I look back at photos in the hot tub, sparkling pool, pontoon rides around Gull Lake, and see the amazing ear to ear smiles on our faces even when we catch what some would refer to as bait…we feel like we are one of the richest families around because we are able to visit Cragun’s.
