Enjoy great lake views from the cabin (large picture window), deck or kitchen table! Don’t just stare, take a stroll down the level-to-the-lake yard and sit at the end of your private dock with your morning coffee.
A Minnesota resort stay has many advantages when it comes to getting on the water quick. Bring your boat and use the boat launch, use the free row boat, or rent one of our Pontoon Boats or Fishing Boats with motors. Keep your water toys right at your private dock! We have gas and oil too.
We have 6 lakeside cabins and a 14 site RV Park. If you need more space, we have it!
Come to the main Lodge and see what’s available for all guests. We carry some grocery items if you forget something. See our full short-order menu. Shared laundry room, toddler room, viewing room with television and 100’s of DVD’s, book library, and for those rainy afternoons - a game room where you can shoot pool or play video games. Take home some Wilds Resort memories - jackets, sweatshirts, Tee shirts, hats.
The resort is buzzing with activities from sunup to sundown! This is what funseekers will find: Paddleboats, volley ball, water toys, horseshoes, bocci ball, tetherball and more. We are open year round so consider a late fall and winter trip. Bring your ATV or snowmobile and ride hundreds of miles of trails.
You book directly with us (Barry or Kristy, Resort Owners.) You always get our best rate and the local advice is free! Let us know what your family/friends likes to do. Love fishing? Shell Lake is teaming with dinner: Walleye, Northern, Large Mouth Bass, Perch, Sunnies and Crappies! Fish on over 400 area lakes surrounded by wilderness! Golfing? Minnesota boasts more golf courses per capita than any other state, so we have that covered too.
Nearby you can bike or hike through the jack pine Northwoods. Most guests take time to tiptoe across the headwaters of the Mississippi River - just a few miles from your Shell Lake Cottage in Itasca State Park. A trip to town is fun! See delightful “Up North” shops in Downtown Park Rapids.

We bought the property that would become The Wilds Resort and Campground in 2001 with a dream of raising our family in an unspoiled natural setting. We moved north with our five children and put all of our accumulated skills in carpentry and decorating to use by renovating the seven existing cabins and the lodge.
The resort is always a work in progress, with the most recent major renovations being the new build of the two-story Wolves Den cabin and the remodeling of Loon’s Nest in 2007. Together, we have cultivated the ideal location to spend quality family time with our kids — and we love to share the space with other families. Welcome to the Wilds!
