My mother, 1 year old son and I had a great time despite the rainy conditions. We took advantage of our free Itasca State Park pass, found a well stocked quilt shop, and loved watching the hummingbirds at the feeders.

Owners are fantastic with helping you with anything they can. This was our 2nd year in a row to stay here. Comfortable, clean, well stocked with kitchen with utensils, cabins are not large, but good for a week.

Our stay with Joel and Tracey will be added to the memory book for a four generation family get-away. The resort & cabin's are neat & clean with plenty to keep young children busy. Just off the main road brings much needed quietness to enjoy nature. We will definitely return and look forward to another stay.

Nice grounds and Lodge. The people are very nice that run this. We'd go back...just get a cabin with a...

We really enjoyed our week stay in cabin 0. Being back a little ways from the water gave me peace of mind for our 2 year old to not run off to the beach, but was able to still see the lake and sunsets from our cabin. The lake is very clean and deep, we enjoyed the little bay past...

Had a great time with our two grandsons (15,11). All the water toys were enjoyed by all and the nightly fire pit was a great ending to our fun filled days. The new lodge was an extra plus! We have made Bear Paw a family tradition.

This is a great place to go and the owners are very nice. It's nice to see a resort that has been kept up and cared for. My family already rebooked for next year and loved it. This was our first year and were very pleased.

“The two bedroom cabins can seat three while relaxing. The fourth must sit on a kitchen chair which can become a little tiresome. Screened porches on all cabins would be a welcomed addition.”
