We went for our first time as a family to a lake for a full week. We were not sure what to expect. We arrived and it was a very beautiful lake and scenery. We seen loons, seagulls, ducks and more. The cabin we rented is just the size we needed for our size family. It was very clean. They... More

We have been seasonal campers at Big Foot for 11 years and love the place. Joe and Terri have always been more than accommodating, helping in anyway they can. The pool, store and grounds are very clean. The grandchildren and adults love the pool, mini golf and the playground area. The lake has kayaks and paddle boats for use. These... More

We were appalled by the condition of cabin 9 when we arrived. We visited with Terri, who appeared dismayed that we were upset and suggested that we go somewhere else. However, this simply was not possible. Believe us, we wanted to leave! (During the week-long stay, we visited another lakeside cabin at this resort and it was cute and acceptably... More

Terri and I have owned Big Foot Resort for 16 years, and during that time we have met many great people and built relationships with many hundreds of guests and have a large percentage of returning guest/friends. Some have been coming since our first year of ownership, and when we have told some of them and others of this reviewer,... More

I am a 2nd generation camper at this resort and having nothing but great things to say about it and the owners. I spent several years coming here with my parents and after they sold due to health reasons, I enjoyed and missed the place enough to rent a seasonal site here. All the fellow campers are very friendly and... More

I've been coming here for the last 11 summers and find this campground to be great. It has great fishing, pontoon and fishing boats and motors to rent, any kind of bait you want, free kayaks to use, a beach volleyball court, and the number one attraction is a very nice swimming pool and kiddie pool. Joe and Terri are... More

The past three years our family has been coming back to Big Foot. The large cabins are great for our large families to gather for a week each summer. My nieces and nephews love playing in the pools, and meet new friends to play with each year. They also have plenty of room for yard games, a small playground, basketball... More

Our website shows all of our sites on a map, which ones are seasonal and which are short stay (5 sites). One short stay site is near the lake and actually has multiple campers on it for this weekend. This is their 4th year at this site. We do have repeat short stay visitors, but of course we do not... More

My family and my wifes extended family booked a week at this resort about 2 hours from Twin Cities, MN. The resort is not fancy, but quite practical with some activities for kids, and pretty reasonable. We stayed a large cabin up the hill from the lake that was basically a double-wide manufactured home, quite roomy nice size kitchen and... More
