I found the views here to be amazing. All the cabins have great lake views. Foggy mornings, beautiful sunsets. Loons calling across the lake. I felt like we were IN nature, not just looking at it from outside. Thanks Joe!

What an amazing resort! From the moment my family arrived, we never wanted to leave this quaint, serene, beautiful, friendly, and inviting place! Sleeping Fawn offers so many family friendly activities (e.g. volleyball, bad mitten, shuffle board, tether ball, nature trails, boats, fishing, canoes, paddle boards, playground, kayaks, bag toss) in an environment just big enough for the kids to...

They loved fishing off the dock, kayaking, and paddle boarding. The raft and trampoline were fun too. The lake is small but quiet. We rented the pontoon boat one day. Enjoyed... More

I took my 2 sons up to the Itasca area for a few days of camping, exploring, and enjoying the area. We typically stay at state parks when we stay in a tent. This time I explored other options, and found Sleeping Fawn online. From the moment we arrived Ellen and Joe made us feel so welcome. Their tent sites... More

Thank you Stacy and boys. It is always nice to know how we compare to State Parks. We assure that a stay with us will be memorable. We are glad they boys enjoyed our wide variety of water toys included in rates. Coffee is always a must while camping. Glad we are able to provide it. Joe More

We LOVE Sleeping Fawn Resort. We bring up our camper trailer. The sites are very roomy and tucked in the beautiful pines! It is very peaceful. The sites are always spotless and the shower room is like your home...private, clean, hot showers. They have added an activity room that has a large flat screen TV - we were able to... More
