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.

Gull lake and the establishments on the lake are never a disappointment. With several restaurants to pull up to with a boat you can spend all day on the lake in style. There are many smaller lakes on the Gull Chain where if you're tubing or water skiing that you can get out of the busyness of the main lake.... More

One of our top lakes within 7 hours of omaha. Very clean, clear and cool even in summer, walleye Dan guides showed us some great fishing, very neat to be able to boat on an lake and see the bottom at same time!

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 of this lake, which all seemed packed with fish. Have a depth-finder handy!

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!

We were looking for a quiet place without it being too boring for my 4 and 7 year olds. This beach is just that. The sand is so smooth and soft and the beach small so we could keep an eye on them without craning our necks too far out. Having said that, it is too small if you are... More

Lots of things to do on Gull Lake. Boating, skiing, fishing, tanning, pontooning, being lazy. Bring your own equipment or rent at area resorts/businesses. At the end of your excursion, stop on shore to eat at local restaurants.

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.
