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

Nice lake but too bad about the zebra mussels. Hope they find a way to get rid of them. It was fun to see all the resorts & houses on the lake.

We have a family reunion every year on Gull lake and never miss an opportunity to take a pontoon ride on BIG, Gull lake. Lots to see and do on the lake form fishing, water-skiing you name it. We love to cruise along the lake shore an dream about which giant house we will retire in. It's a big lake... More

I love Gull Lake. Go during the week to avoid crowds. The restaraunts on the lake are all worth stopping at. Stop by Lakes Fun Rental to rent a pontoon and spend a whole day of fun swimming in the bays, snacking, and enjoying the sun.

I don't think it's a very big view that you could hangout for a whole day, but if several lakes in a row would be better. But if you own a property beside the lake, that's another story

This is a great lake for boaters. Be sure to take a map because you could get lost. There are many bays off this lake. You can take channels that lead to other lakes. Lake gets very rough during storms and windy days. There are areas where you will find many boats anchored and people swimming.

My husband and I are 'camping' in Pequot Lakes for the remainder of the summer. Last Sunday afternoon was a picture perfect day for boating, so we called around and found a pontoon that was available at Boats and Beyond which is right on the lake. We have been in the Brainerd Lakes area several times and had driven by... More

I was on this lake twice during the summer and had two different experiences. The first time it was pretty crowded and while the lake was beautiful I didn't like how many people were around. The second time was a bit of a cooler day but this made it a little less popular and it was immensely pleasant and serene... More

Whether a boating trip in the summer or snowmobiling in the winter, Gull Lake is a great place to enjoy Minnesota.
