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... More

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.

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!
