Things to do during "cabin time" in Baudette
Lake Of The Woods resorts and Baudette MN cabins and cottages have a charm that will have you wanting more. The serene beauty of the wilderness and state parks that surround this town and vacation rentals are tranquil. Their close proximity to Lake of the Woods is what makes this lodging and town a great incentive to visit.
Anglers, get your line and Lake of the Woods fishing report ready for the “Walleye Capital of the World”. Lake of the Woods is the 7th largest lake in the U.S. with almost 1500 square miles of waterways to catch your next sauger, muskie, northern pike, jumbo perch, largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, and sturgeon. Watch for when the sturgeon reach the water’s surface on their way up to the Rainy River. Rainy River has fish a century old and can weigh 100 pounds! Early spring and fall are the best times to come up here but the Lake of the Woods ice fishing cannot be beat. The town relies on its heavy ice to get some of the best ice fishing the Midwest has to offer. (Be sure to get a copy of a Lakes of the Woods fishing report before you come). Be sure to check out “Willie the Walleye” a 40ft statue over 50 years old in Baudette. Maybe saying hello to the giant guy will bring you luck ( but it’s doubtful you need any, fish are so abundant here).
Birdwatchers from all over the world come to Baudette and Lake of the Woods to admire the many different species of birds that make Baudette and Lake of the Woods home.

Morels can be quite elusive to the human eye but here, you can find them in the early spring in the state forests. Make a day of it and educate your kids or party about the different wildlife and native species that life in our populous state parks. Also try your hand at blueberry picking. There are quite abundant around the edges of the forest near the highway.
Another magical part of the Baudette area is its close proximity to Canada. Glimpses of Canada can actually be seen, but the real beauty is how the unpolluted crisp clean air gives way to enchanted lights that dance and glimmer amongst the skies. This is all part of the Waters of the Dancing sky Scenic Byway. Check the calendar and book your next Lake of the Woods Cabin. World-class fishing and amazing golfing too.
In the fall, the area gives the hunter access to over 1,500 acres of public land to hunt deer, small game, waterfowl, turkey, bear and wolf. Fall is a terrific time to check out the famous fall scenic tours that northern Minnesota show off. Tours along Rapid River Road are a must see.
