Nice lake

If you are in Brainerd then this is a must stop. It is THE lake to go fishing and boating. The lake is what brings in the tourists.

Bull is a very large lake, the fishing is very good. There are a few restaurants on the lake that you can boat up to,

Great Fishing Lake Bass, Walleye, Northern Pike, plus pan fish Sun Fish, Crappies, there are all kinds of water sports. Don't like water sports there are go-cart tracks, water slides, miniature golf, or you can go see old Paul Bunyan. There are many resorts to stay, most have there own golf courses which are some of the best rated golf... More

If you want to be seen and socialize this is the lake for you!! There are plenty of places to stop to eat and drink, or you can just cruise around for hours if you want to. After dark be careful, it is a lake with a lot of ins and outs, shallows too! Bring lifejackets, a cooler and sunscreen!... More

Miles of shoreline - pristine wilderness to lakefront mansions. But always a north woods feel and aroma.

Our resort was situated on Gull Lake. Lots of boating, fishing and swimming during the year. Many different types of resorts and eateries are present plus several golf courses. And a small airstrip for those who want to come via plane.

This is a prime vacation/tourist area, about 15 minutes northwest of Brainerd, Mn. There are many ways to spent time and money in and around the lake. Some of Minnesotans most expensive resorts and finest golf courses are on the south side of the lake (ie Maddens & Craguns), or the North side (Grand View Lodge). There are many restaurants... More
