Small and family operated the Gunflint Pines Resort & Campground is one of the few private campgrounds on the Gunflint Trail, and the only campground on Gunflint Lake. The feel is slightly more like a family compound than a commercial resort as guests often return and get to know one another.
Often families choose our resort for their family reunion or get together due to the variety of accommodations we offer. From cabins to camping cabins, RV or tent campsites we have something to offer most any family’s needs.
We pay special attention to young children as we know what it can be like to vacation if children aren’t happy. We have a treat jar and board games in the lodge, a playground area and a sandbox to help keep them busy.
We want to help you escape the stress of your busy life and return to a simpler time. Play a board game with your kids, paddle a canoe to explore the lakeshore. Take a boat ride to Bridal falls, or to Campers Island to cook a shore lunch. Listen to the call of the loon, pack a lunch and picnic at the High Cliffs. Fish, look for moose, skip rocks, pick berries or roast marshmallows with your child. Let them remind you what it’s like to look up into the night sky or down at the plants on the ground.
As of yet we are still “out in the boonies”. While we offer TV’s in the cabins you’ll need to bring DVD’s and you might as well turn the cell phone off as you head up the trail as there’s no coverage here (yet). You’ll be amazed at how much you can do in a day without electronics.
