Welcome Guests & Friends

Northern Lights Resort offers a variety of amenities for our guests enjoyment. Our goal is to provide a quiet, safe, friendly and enjoyable vacation experience for everyone. All amenities are complimentary.

Resort Store & Offfice

The resort store is centrally located on the resort property with signs directing guests. The store serves as the check-in location, gathering area, storm shelter and convenience store. Gas, tackle, clothing, food, snacks, candy, ice cream and souvenirs can be purchased at the resort store. Resort staff are also available to provide assistance to our guests, answer questions and provide local shopping/dining recommendations. The store is typically open 9:00-5:00 Monday-Thursday, 9:00-7:00 on Friday/Saturday and 1:00-4:00 on Sunday (hours may vary based on availability).

Game Room & Laundry

Located centrally on the resort grounds, the Game Room and Laundry are open 8:00-10:00 each day during the warm months. The Game Room features a pool table, dart board, board games, puzzles and outdoor games. A basketball hoop is also located next to the Game Room.

Coin operated laundry is available in the Game Room for $1.50 per load. A utility sink is also available within the laundry room. Detergent and change are available in the Resort Store.

Playground & Beach

Kids and adults alike love our sandy beach. The sandy beach area is marked as a swim area, free of weeds and has a gradual slope. For playful fun, a Maui Mat is anchored in the shallow waters of the swim area and is perfect for younger children. Further out in the water, our adventurous guest enjoy a floating water trampoline with inflatable extension.  Complimentary kayaks, paddleboards and pedal boats are staged in the beach area and can be enjoyed by our lifejacket wearing guests. Complimentary lifejackets are available on the Resort Store patio.

A playground with swings, ropes, tower and a slide is located in the grassy area next to the beach. This is the perfect location for parents to watch both kids who are swimming as well as playing on the playground.

Bait Barn & Fish Cleaning House

Northern Lights Resort stocks an onsite Bait Barn during the peak fishing season (May-September). The Bait Barn is open 24×7. The Barn is stocked with Minnows, Leeches and Nightcrawlers. Bait is reasonably priced and requires guests to complete a bait ticket when obtaining bait. These bait tickets are completed on the honor system and added to the guests bill for payment at the end of their stay.

Located next to the Bait Barn is a well equipped Fish Cleaning House. The house features multiple stainless steel counters, running water, sink, hoses, disposal buckets and cutting boards. Disposal buckets are removed throughout the day as part of the staff cleaning procedures thus ensuring a clean and well maintained space for our guests. Filet knives are not provided, but can be purchased in the Resort Store.

Campfire & Firewood

Each campsite and cabin includes a private fire ring. The fire rings are slightly below ground and surrounded by fireproof rings. All fires must be within the ring and extinguished before bed and prior to check-out. Firewood is complimentary for our guests and can be obtained from one of the three covered Firewood Huts located throughout the grounds. The huts are conveniently located next to the playground, shower house and game room/gas pumps. In compliance with DNR rules, we ask that guests do not bring their own firewood.


The resort offers many other conveniences for our guests including complimentary lifejackets, recycle stations, trash cans, grills, picnic tables, shower house and boat decontamination station. Each cabin and campsite has an outdoor trash container that is emptied throughout the week. A large dumpster is located near the resort entrance on the bluff. Recyclable materials should not be placed in the trash but rather taken to one of our three conveniently located recycle stations. Recycling is beneficial to the environment and saves on trash disposal costs.

Our campground shower house offers both men’s and women’s facilities. Each facility includes a private shower, toilet stall, sink, vanity and mirror. Paper towels, hand soap and toilet paper are provided and the shower house is cleaned/sanitized multiple times a day. An RV waste dump station is also available next to the campground. A waste tote is available.
