Our Beach

Our beach is a safe, gently sloping, sandy area facing southwest for the warm summer sun. A swim raft is anchored a few feet from the shoreline of our clear, spring-fed lake. We offer free kayaks, paddle boards, paddle boats, and a canoe for guests to use during their stay.

Our Playground

For the children's enjoyment we have a large and expansive playground. Swings, slides, climbers and a sandy beach area are available for the small children. We have basketball, volleyball and a large playground area with a play train and a pirate ship for all the adventurous kids to enjoy.

Our normal activities offered throughout the week like children's pontoon rides, nature hike, and coffee and doughnuts for the adults are postponed until further notice for summer 2020. We are working on providing a self guided scavenger hunt and other frozen treats this summer. They will all be back in 2021!

The lodge houses a small convenience store complete with live bait, ice, snacks, firewood, gasoline and much more. For summer 2020 our common areas such as: preschool play room, a large family area with books, board games a large TV with Netflix, and arcade will be closed until further notice. They will be back in 2021! Feel free to stop in the lodge if you need assistance with anything or a fresh cup of coffee and conversation.

Fishing on Little Mantrap Lake

Little Mantrap Lake boasts fishing opportunities for the whole family. Largemouth bass, crappies, sunfish, northerns and walleyes are found in the arms and bays of this clear, spring fed lake.

As you fish the bays and shoreline of the lake for panfish you can see 12-13 ft. into the clean waters of Little Mantrap Lake. The depth varies from 10-15 ft. along the shoreline to  35-40 ft. in most areas with a few deeper spots. Plant life varies from water lilies to cattails and bullrushes with no surface rocks or stumps to damage your boat while you fish.
