1. Fishin’ Cousins
Our whole family vacationed together at Cragun’s Resort last summer. We had a wonderful time. It was the first time at Cragun’s Resort for each of us and is our new FAVORITE destination.
These five cousins (ages 1 to 7) had a wonderful time with the numerous activities. We even caught the first NABC Pro Fishing Tournament to be held there and the boys were given hats and fishing poles.
If you are looking for a beautiful and fun family resort, Cragun’s is it! We enjoyed the comfortable cabins, beautiful sites, beach (swimming, sand fun, sand volleyball), walks along the beach, playground equipment, indoor and outdoor pools, minnow races, bonfires, activity center, feeding the ducks, horse & carriage rides, and so much more.
We will be back! Thank you for a wonderful time and so many family memories!

2. Best Resort For Making Memories
Cragun’s is the fun-filled adventure resort! The entrance is filled with lush flowers, evenly spaced American flags and immaculate surroundings. Beauty is everywhere… especially the mesmerizing Gull Lake. Our family rented a pontoon from the friendly staff at the marina who told us where the fish were biting. Even provided a map! What a fun-filled ride and adventure we’ll not soon forget! We always thrill to the Clydesdale cart ride around the resort. The entertaining outdoor movie with the beautiful lake as a backdrop. And above all, the crackling evening campfires along the beach. We can still visualize the dancing flames from all the fire rings as far as you can see. Cragun’s brings families together for bonding, banter and priceless memories. We always appreciate the welcome dinner buffet with Dutch. Not only do we feel welcomed, but the buffet is the best we’ve ever eaten. To have the welcome dinner and parting breakfast buffet on a Holiday weekend included in the resort price is incredible. All of the staff are so friendly and willing to go out of their way to make any accommodations needed to make your stay more comfortable. We’ve needed fans, extra blankets, later maid service etc. and they were more than willing to bring us anything we needed with a smile. The welcome dinner and parting breakfast are so nice when you’re only staying for a 3 day weekend. The quality family time at Cragun’s brings families closer together with priceless memories. That’s what life at Cragun’s is all about!

3. Aunt Cayla’s Cabin
Earlier this spring, our daughter told some of her teachers at school that we were going to our cabin. One night when I was picking up our daughter from school, the teacher said, “You must be heading to your cabin this weekend.” I answered, “We do not have a cabin.” Our daughter chimed in, “Yes, we do. You know, Aunt Cayla’s cabin, where she got married.” I replied, “Ahhh…yes. Most people call that place Cragun’s. We were just borrowing that cabin!” The kids still strongly believe that my sister Cayla (and her husband by default of marriage) own Cragun’s resort in Brainerd because they were married there 2 years ago. Last summer, we spent a weekend at Cragun’s and the kids walked around the whole weekend saying, “Aunt Cayla sure has a nice cabin” and “Aunt Cayla’s lake and beach are sure fun.” I have a feeling that 20 years from now, we will still be vacationing at Cragun’s and calling it “Aunt Cayla’s cabin”!

4. Relaxing, Wonderful Family Vacation
Peace. Quiet. Time to talk to my husband. Usually these things are impossible with 3 very active kids. Some vacations are frantic, busy, fighting crowds and standing in line. But… then there’s Cragun’s! My oldest fishes quietly for hours. The younger two spend 8 straight hours… 8 straight hours… playing in Gull Lake and on the beach. Together! Happily! My husband and I lounge from afternoon until sunset on the beach in the wonderful lounge chairs watching our 3 kids enjoy their vacation. And we talk… yes, talk! We unwind with a beach side campfire, and then go to bed. The kids sleep so soundly after hours of sunshine and Gull Lake. It is always a relaxing, wonderful family vacation. Longing for it already!
