Play with the kids on the beach. Take a tour of beautiful West Crooked Lake. Make a day of seeing the many nearby attractions the area has to offer. Make s’mores by the campfire. Read a book on the quiet deck of your cabin. Whatever your idea of fun, you will find it at West Crooked Lake Resort.

Our cabins are very clean and comfortable – your home away from home. In each you will find knotty pine interior, new log furniture, and tasteful decor to ensure a cozy, Northwoods feel. Each cabin has a beautiful view of West Crooked Lake.

West Crooked Lake Resort is known for fun summer vacations, but we are open year-round for those wanting to get in on the activities that a Minnesota winter has to offer. If you want to fish, go tubing, relax on the beach, hunt, take in the gorgeous fall colors, snowmobile, cross-country ski, ice fish, or just getaway on a cold winter weekend, we’ve got accommodations for all that and more.

Experience a Truly Northern Minnesota Vacation

Minnesota family resorts like West Crooked Lake Resort are a special find. We’re confident that once you’ve vacationed in any of our family-friendly cabins, you’ll want to return year after year. Our five lakeside cabins are finished in beautiful Northwoods décor and are exceptionally clean. Each offers breathtaking views of the lake and spectacular sunsets. Our resort, located in the Paul Bunyan State Forest, is surrounded by towering pines.

We are a year-round resort, located on the northeast shore of West Crooked Lake in Nevis, Minnesota. While our location is quiet and serene, we are only 15 miles NE of Park Rapids, MN and 15 miles SW of Walker, MN, where opportunities for shopping, dining, and recreation are plentiful.

West Crooked Lake Resort offers relaxation and enjoyment for the entire family. You can enjoy sunbathing on the sandy beach, swimming in the clear water, or playing on the Rave Water Park. Listen to the loons calling, watch eagles soar overhead, glide through the clear waters in a canoe or paddleboat, or just bring a book, relax, and take in the peacefulness.

Although we are known for our fun Minnesota summer vacations, we also have four cabins set up for the colder months, so you can enjoy all that a winter vacation has to offer. The peacefulness of a snow covered lake is the perfect setting for your Minnesota winter getaway. If you are interested in a snowmobiling vacation, we have convenient access to local trails, which are great for a group snowmobiling trip. You can also enjoy cross-country skiing on the lake or on nearby trails. Anyone looking for family vacations, romantic getaways, family reunions, fishing vacations, fall color vacations, and winter vacations will find all that and more at West Crooked Lake Resort. Whichever season you’re looking to get away, we invite you to make your next reservation here at West Crooked Lake Resort.
