They have good pizza and good service. It's a laid back atmosphere. The place is always clean. They do a good job keeping the insects out. I will go back when I take a trip to Brainerd again.

You can get a wide variety of activities here, from fishing, and is an amazing place, to going to restaurants - at lest six that I know of - to having some fun on the water. A great lake to be.

Need I say more? This lake is packed with panfish. I was able to drop a line into, what seemed like, huge schools of sunnies, small mouth bass and other, good-sized pan fish. Sadly, I didn't spend a lot of time trolling the many drop-offs...More

We rented a pontoon for our extended family and had a great time. Also, it was fun to fish off the dock and our kids had fun going tubing on Gull Lake!
