This is a very friendly, fun and clean campground. I have been coming here for a few years and then became a seasonal and loving it. Joe and Ellen are very accommodating to all their guests. They are always happy to see you year after year.

Ellen & Joe, the mother/son duo created this oasis which allows you to just be. 6 cabins (and an RV park up the hill) provides just enough other folks to still allow you to feel like you are the only ones there. Gorgeous Stocking Lake (not too large) looks like glass lots of days and there is as much or... More

I love this place! It has excellent fishing, with Small mouth and Large mouth bass, Sunnies, Perch, and even turtles! And much more. Has a u shaped dock for littler kids and the rest of the lake for older kids. Has life jackets, paddle boards, paddle boats, canoes and kayaks to complete the water experience. Cabins are roomy with kitchens... More

My Seattle, WA family dreams all year about our weekly summer escape to Sleeping Fawn in Park Rapids. It's the perfect place to relax and revive – great cabins, gorgeous surroundings, and a good-sized sandy beach on a beautiful and quiet lake. All the fantastic and well-maintained amenities (kayaks, paddle boards, and paddle boats for free use – life vests... More

We've spent the last 8 summers vacationing at Sleeping Fawn, and can't imagine going anywhere else. With three young kids, this resort is a parents dream come true. So many activities to keep the kids busy - swimming, boating, kayaking, shuffleboard, hiking, fishing. The accommodations are perfect for a week away from home and once we arrive at Sleeping Fawn,...

Swimming, splashing, catching. This resort is so AWSOME. We keep coming back each year! It has a number of paddle boats, paddle boards, canoes and kayaks along with a water trampoline and diving dock. This resort has a lovely beach with a nice play-ground. It is in the perfect location in Park Rapids MN, right next-door to Emmaville. Emmaville is... More

My family and I have been returning to this BEAUTIFUL resort in northern Minnesota for the past 6 years, and that is saying something since we live in Philadelphia, PA! This place could not be more perfect for kids- a generously sized U-dock enclosing a swimming area for the younger ones, and for the older set plenty of paddle boats,... More

This was our 8th year at Sleeping Fawn. Luckily we are able to rent all the cabins for our annual family tradition of "going to the lake" - (family that now spreads to both coasts). Every year we are surprised by the changes and upgrades. This year we loved our new deck, sliding glass door, pocket doors to the bedrooms,... More

Our family has been enjoying Sleeping Fawn for the past four years. We keep coming back mainly due to the owners hospitality, and the resort grounds and cabins which are superbly maintained or constantly upgraded! Joe is always tidying up something! Our kids love playing on the big sandy beach and enjoying quiet evenings of s'mores at our personal fire... More

Sleeping Fawn is a place where you can rest in a hammock, take a nap, read on the beach, fish, and grill out. You can also take all types of day trips. The Headwaters of the Mississippi River, Chippewa National Forrest, and various other area festivals are nearby and such fun. This year we got attend the second annual Emmaville... More
