Cragun’s Resort is open! We have enhanced our cleaning processes and implemented new procedures to provide a cleaner, safer environment for both our guests and our team members. Our sales team is ready and available to talk about booking your upcoming stay at Cragun’s Resort. We will update our website including the Activities Calendar and Dining Pages as changes occur.
Our housekeeping processes have changed to comply with the current industry best practices. Out of concern for both guest and staff health and safety, we are not offering a daily room cleaning/stayover service. Your room has been stocked with extra towels and toiletries. You can pick up extra supplies at the front desk or by calling the front desk at 218-825-2700 (internal phones dial 0) and we will be delighted to deliver it to your room.
Cragun’s Resort cabins and lodge rooms are open. Come enjoy wonderful lakeside lodge rooms overlooking beautiful Gull Lake. Or bring the whole family and stay in one of our many lakeside cabins. Check-in starts at 5:00 pm and we must allow adequate time to sanitize and clean each unit. If you arrive earlier and your room is ready you can check into it. Should your room not be ready when you arrive, please enjoy the property while you wait.
