Loon Point Resort is especially suited for a Minnesota family vacation. Our nine cabins include classic 2 and 3 bedroom cabins of the 50's, a privately situated lakehome build in the 70's, and three new full log 3 and 4 bedroom cabins. You'll enjoy the scenic views of crystal clear Wasson Lake in northern Minnesota. Our Minnesota family resort is the only resort on the lake and is situated on 53 acres of forestland. You won't hear the highway here!
Wasson Lake offers great fishing for panfish, northern pike, and smallmouth and largemouth bass. The 450 acre lake has great structure for fish habitat with numerous bays and four islands. Even on a windy day, you'll be able to tuck into a bay or behind an island and enjoy fishing. If you don't have your own boat, you can rent a resort boat and motor – complete with add-ons like swivel seats, trolling motor and portable fish finder. Or take the entire family out on our new pontoon . . . do a little fishing and then take a swim while anchored in a bay.

Additional water activities include kayaks, canoes, a catamaran sailboat, and paddleboat – all complimentary items for everyone's use. Our family resort has an extensive playground with a Rainbow Play System (safely situated where the children will be away from the water, yet in view of most of the cabins), large lawn area for playing ball or other yard games, a sandbox, basketball, volleyball/badminten, and horseshoes.
