Family fun at

Boyd lodge

Boyd Lodge is conveniently located on both Rush and Lower Whitefish Lakes, offering many things to do in the Crosslake area. Water sports and fishing are at the top of the popularity list here, but the area is buzzing with fun activities for the whole family. We are centrally located on the Paul Bunyan Scenic Byway. The nation’s only scenic byway whose primary theme is a Tall Tale! Also, we have over 5 miles of nature trails of our own which offer a great wildlife experience. Be sure to stop by our gift shop to pick out a treat or a Boyd souvenir. Canoes are available free for the beach lover and fishing boats and a pontoon are for rent. With summer family activities, fabulous sugar sand beach, beach volleyball, a heated swimming pool, indoor whirlpool, and sauna there is something for everyone.

Crosslake is a mere three miles down the road with its many great dining spots, antique stores, activities for the kids, public library, geo hunts, and the Crosslake Area Historical Society. Every Saturday night during the summer there is a free concert in Town Square. Pequot Lakes, Nisswa, and Pine River also offer many great attractions all year around.
