Welcome Party

Sunday nights in the summer and most Friday nights in off-season, join us for Cragun’s traditional Welcome Reception and Dinner Buffet held in the Lakeside Dining Room (included FREE for most package guests). Family friendly food and drinks and entertainment make this event the best way to kick off your stay at Cragun’s. The Welcome Reception is also the place to sign up for all of the recreational activities you’d like to participate in during your stay.


Horse-Drawn Trolley Rides

A team of beautiful Clydesdales will pull you in a 20 passenger trolley during this half-hour narration around the resort. Learn many interesting facts about Cragun’s. It’s perfect for all seasons, be sure to make this a relaxing part of your stay.


Fishing Clinics

Do you want to know exactly where all the hotspots are on Gull Lake and where to catch the big one?  Don’t miss the fishing clinic.  An area guide will let you know all you need to know, and then some, for your Gull Lake fishing excursion.  Be ready to ask any questions you may have during and after the clinic, these guides love to talk.  If you’re looking for some professional assistance on the water, the guide will be happy to inform you of rates and availability.


Moonlight Movie

Join us on the South Beach select evenings after dark to watch family movies. Bring your blanket and join the fun! (weather permitting)



A Cragun’s tradition that was started back in the early days of the resort and it’s as popular now as ever.  Today, we’ve added a few new twists to our Bingo nights adding a little more excitement.  Cards are free to everyone, so bring the whole family!



Nightly bonfires are held on the beach with marshmallow roasts each night.  It’s a nice way to bring the family together or get to know others staying at the resort.  Many long time friendships have had their beginnings around the fire at lakeside.  Who knows, maybe we will all get to hear some good stories or start a sing-a-long.
