The owners and staff were friendly and helpful. The cabin was very clean and the kitchen was stocked with most of the necessities. The grounds and equipment were well maintained and cared for. The fishing on the lake was great and seeing and hearing the loons was an added bonus.

Bear Paw Resort is one of the best resorts in the Park Rapids area. Joel and Tracey are hands on owners who have always gone above and beyond to make our stays excellent. We just completed our 6th repeat stay with them and we always rebook. This is a family friendly resort with everything you need right there....food, bait, playground,... More

Bear Paw Resort is a very family oriented vacation spot. It has many different things to do for all ages. And their pizzas are darn good also. The staff is very friendly and courteous and always seemed to have that "how can I help" you attitude.

The cabins are very clean, neat, and have ac! Love the views from the deck. The water toys are a plus. Also easy access to itasca state park. We will definitely go again sometime. I do recommend that in the 4pwrson cabins you keep it to one family. We had grandparents with us and it was a bit cozy.

As the resort was beautiful when we arrived we discovered there was a family reunion there. The family reunion took up all cabins except 3. I would have liked to know this prior to staying. It was not as fun and comfortable with them all there. Would have liked to enjoy a camp fire that was closer to my cabin.... More

We have been going to different resorts for 28 years, looking for that one resort we all love. We have found it at Bear Paw. We have been coming here for 8 years now and have no desire to switch resorts. The place is clean and the owners are continually upgrading or adding something to add to the fun and... More

We stayed over memorial weekend for the second year, brought our ATVs for the trails (which are within minutes of resort), and bikes for when we used our Itasca free day pass from the resort. Our kids enjoyed the beach toys provided by resort, their water equipment, and camp fires in the evening. The owners are very kind and easy... More

This is a great get away for a couple or family. It was a very quiet and peaceful. We totally enjoyed our stay and will come back soon. I would recommend getting your reservations early. Owners are great about letting you know what fun places to go visit and hang out. We received a Itasca Park for the day. It... More
