There is Always an Activity

to Keep You Entertained

Boyd Lodge is conveniently located on both Rush Lake and Lower Whitefish Lake, so there’s obviously no shortage of water activities. We are also just minutes from the beautiful lakeside town of Crosslake, Minnesota, which offers a whole host of year-round things to do. If that isn’t enough, we’re less than 30 minutes from Brainerd/Baxter, central Minnesota’s very own version of the Twin Cities. Bottom line? You’ll never be bored – it’s impossible!
