We have stayed at Bear Paw Resort in the past, but this stay was the first with the new owners, Ruth and Doug. Stayed in Cabin #8, clean and comfortable. Since we were the only resorters those evenings, we had a chance to visit with Ruth and Doug. Nice folks. They were repainting all the cabins while we were there. Doug has made some improvements and has some good ideas for the upcoming year. We enjoyed our short stay and are looking forward to our upcoming week in July...😎
We've been bringing our family of 4 to Bear Paw since 2012. Our girls have grown up on the beach, the Bongo, the paddleboards. They've gone from the playground to the basketball courts - there is entertainment for every age. The addition of the lodge a few years ago was great and gives another option for a rainy day. Favorite stops off the resort are the Sunday Mass at the grotto just a few miles away, candy stores and shopping in Park Rapids, Evergreen Amusement Park for mini-golf and games, Itasca State Park for crossing the headwaters and bike trails, the Character Challenge Course, and meals out in Dorset and at the Logger's Camp. Cabins are clean and well-maintained. We've made dear friends who return every year the same week we do. I'm certain Bear Paw will remain in my kids' best childhood memories for the rest of their lives. You can't go wrong here.…
Me and my siblings went here as children with our parents. Now we are in our 30s and bringing our children and they love it. There is alot to do on the resort. And lots to do close by going into town for groceries is convenient. The owners now are so great! We cant wait to go back this summer.
We can’t say enough good things about Bear Paw Resort. They think of everything and make your stay so relaxing. The resort is welcoming, the cabins are clean, have lots of shelving to keep things organized, and the beds are comfortable. The kitchen has every dish, pan, and utensil you’d ever need. It was nice to travel light and rent one of their boats. It ran great and was docked right in front of our cabin. Having our own fire pit right next to our cabin and overlooking the lake was so peaceful. Oh, and don’t wait til your last night to order their pizza. It was delicious and we wish we would have ordered sooner! We look forward to returning in the future. Perfect place to unwind!
This was our 8th year of coming to this resort. First time with the new owners. It was still great. We have 4 or 5 of the cabins every year for our family. We still enjoyed the clean cabins at check in and the cleanliness of the resort. Each cabin can have it's own fire or like us, fit 15+ around one ring. It's all about getting family together and this resort exactly meets our needs! Definitely recommend!
