The kids won’t forget this vacation. There’s so much to do, they won’t have a chance to get bored!

A day on the water is always fun.  Rent a canoe, kayak, or our peddle boat, for some great sight-seeing and some exercise.  Swim out to our water bouncer, where kids and adults alike can jump, slide, try to keep their balance on the inflated slippery log, or just kick back and sunbathe!    There’s a lovely beach to get your toes sandy or build castles and moats.

Once they dry off, they can hit the playground, walking trails, horseshoe pits, or the main lodge for a Popsicle or candy.   We all remember the tuck shop from our family vacations when we were kids, right?  Candy always tastes better when you buy it from a tuck shop on your vacation!

The evening is the best time to sit by the fire pit and enjoy a true northern campfire while making s’mores.  With any luck, the skies will be clear and maybe a glimpse of the Northern Lights can be had.  At the very least, the stars are spectacular.

On a rainy day there’s no worries either – each cabin has satellite TV, WiFi and DVD players.  Better yet, there is a large selection of movies and board games for families to borrow.  It’s great togetherness time!

We love that the children who visit Elk Lake Wilderness Resort are almost always outside, and playing with each other, whether they’re old friends or brand new ones.
