Things to do during "cabin time" in Osage
Book these Osage, MN Resorts and cabins direct and get the guaranteed lowest rate. The Up North cabins and cottages for rent by local owners and managers in Osage, Minnesota, offer a true escape from busy modern life, in a community of just a few hundred surrounded by secluded natural scenery and rich with lakes and waterways. Osage has a rich settlement history around logging in the area, dating back to the late 1880s.
Osage is home to the fishing hot spots of Straight Lake and Valines Lake. The Straight and shell rivers also flow through the township toward the southeast, offering even more fishing opportunities, as well as numerous paddling and water-based exploration for canoers and kayakers. The Straight River — a tributary of the Fish Hook River — runs 23 miles long and is fed by natural streams that are cold enough to support a thriving trout population. Happy fishermen in the area have even reported catching brown trout more than 20 inches long!
The Shell River, named for the mussel and clam shells that can be dug along its banks, is a tributary of the Crow Wing River and flows all the way to the nearby Smoky Hills State Forest, only 12 minutes from the township of Osage. Check into your homey rental cabin with your family (or fishing party) and you can use the convenient kitchens to cook up a meal around the locally sourced fish and clams you pull in yourself!
Osage is also home to the Osage Sportsmans Club, where visitors can practice shooting.
