Gorgeous grounds and wonderful proprietors. The lake is fantastic with sightings of bald eagles and, of course, loons. The owners run a tight ship which is reflected in all of their employees. This place was great. We'll be back! PS Thanks for the gas rescue, Joel!

From the cabins, to the new lodge, to the beach and sunken fire pits Bear Paw is what we spend 51 weeks waiting for each year. The fishing is always good to phenomenal. Our grandkids love the Bongo and other water toys.

It was perfect for our family of 4-two children ages 12 & 14. The cabin is always clean when we arrive and is equipped with everything we need for... More

This was the second year our extended family spent a week at this resort. My kids ran up to Mr. Joel and Ms. Tracey and gave them a hug as soon as we arrived. From ages 2-77 everyone had a great time. Kids played, sportsman fished, and others relaxed and enjoyed the breathtaking views, loons, and comfortable accommodations. We snagged... More

We again stayed at Bear Paw last week. Since my last review they have added a very nice lodge. They serve ice cream {1 free per guest}, pizza, wings, cinnamon rolls. breakfast sandwiches, and lots of other goodies. We didn't try all of it, but what we had was very good. They have a very good selection of Bear Paw... More
