If you want to explore the beauty of the MN landscape, drive the Otter Trail Scenic Byway, or take a 30-minute trip to Glendalough State Park to one of the few heritage lakes left in the US, meaning that motors and electronic fishing devices are banned. As a result, the waters are crystal clear and the size of the panfish is unmatched. Swimming, kayaking and canoes are also allowed so everyone will be appeased. However, don&rsquo:t forget to get off the water and explore the many trails that traverse the park. Bike or walk around the lake or through the expansive forests, there are trails of varying difficulty and terrain so all skill levels can enjoy the pristine beauty of this wild gem.
After all this excitement, your rustic rental cabin will be doubly appealing. Afterall, why wouldn&rsquo:t you want to spend the day casting from the dock, or launching your boat out into the water. If you bring the whole family or fishing troop, space isn&rsquo:t an issue at these peaceful getaways. Ottertail Resorts typically have plenty of room for parking trailers and space for yard games, which are often included in your rental. The indoors is just as roomy; these cabins can sleep up to 6, but if your party is a little bigger, rent another cabin at the resort. Cozy, air conditioned lodging with all the amenities you could ask for: a fish cleaning stations, outdoor grills, firepits, a full kitchen. There is no doubt that your party will be feasting well during your stay.
