Our unique resort has been in existence for over 70 years! We preserve the memory of simple times, but have added modern fisherman’s touches like a concrete boat landing, motor rentals, a small country store, gas, oil, ice and other incidentals. Our 2,200 acre lake consists of many large bay and channels leading to Big Trout, Little Trout and Bluewater Lakes. Our location on the south side of the lake puts you close to great fishing.
Walleye, northern, largemouth and smallmouth bass, perch and bluegill. A large lake means lots of recreational opportunity. Grab the skii's! Wade, swim, snorkel or tube. With water clarity up to 16 feet, you’ll love summer-splashing in Itasca County. Take a break from technology! Our rustic rentals have available wi-fi and cable TV, but no telephones in room. Our advice; find a fishing hole, read a book, relax on the dock – enjoy your week at Birch Bay Resort.

Birch Bay Resort has been in existence for over 70 years, and has been owned and operated by the Hemmingson family since 1979. It was passed down to Lorrie & Jeff in 2011, but they have been involved in the daily operations for many, many years.
The resort evokes the memory of a simpler time yet offers modern conveniences such as a concrete boat landing, live wells for each cabin, boat & motor rentals, as well as the sale of gas and oil. If you forget something, chances are our little country store has what you need (ICE!).
Please feel free to call or email with any questions you may have - we are happy to give as much information as possible up front!!
