Cragun’s Resort and Hotel is located in the heart of snowmobile country. The Gull Lake Lighted Trail runs past Cragun’s and is connected to a thousand miles of groomed trails in the Brainerd Lakes area. Maps of Brainerd snowmobiling trails are available at the Marina and the Snowmobile Center.
Bring your own sled or rent one from us. Choose one of our new Polaris snowmobiles with the clean and efficient Polaris engines. We offer brand new Ski-Doo Renegade 900 Aces , both single rider and 2-up snowmobiles for rent. We emphasize safety by requiring viewing of a video and review safe operation and familiarity of the sled to insure a comfortable, safe ride. We also review safe Brainerd snowmobiling trails on maps that we provide. Any Minnesota resident born after December 31, 1976, is required by law to hold snowmobile certification.
