I like to tell folkes... this is the ultimate "god's country" vacation to quote the great outdoors. (without uncle roman) Home to the Chippewa National Forest this is a fun area to play. The lost 40 is very cool also. In the 20's they clear cut everything but some how missed this little section... the trees are huge!
Here is a fun place to stay on a nice large lake... there are a few in MN. Arcadia Lodge
This is a great place for the famil, nice beach and cabins. It really is a larger version of the camp in the great outdoors
For those in texas... take 35 north until it ends... then turn left
