Spectacular gardens, one of the clearest lakes in MN, big sand beach, activities for the kids and staff that make you feel welcome—only a handful of reasons why our family has been coming here for 24 years.
We have been coming to Half Moon Trail for years! It is the highlight of our summer! The grounds are beautiful and the activities are so fun! The cabins are exceptional! This will be a tradition that our own kids continue!
We return to Half Moon Trail every year because it is a family oriented resort. The grounds are beautiful. Our grandkids love the minnow races and s’mores and kettle corn around the campfire. Very nice beach. Great playground for the little ones.
Memorial day weekend at Halfmoon Trail resort is our annual trip since 2018. We can't wait to come to this place again and again. Liz and Ryan are the best hosts and the nicest people. Very accommodating. Girls are learning management skills too. Well managed grounds, the cleanest resort are ever visited. Never regret standing time there. Wish we can come more often, at list twice a year. Love fishing on Boot Lake. Gorgeous sunsets.
2022 will be our sixth stay at Half Moon Trail. Each experience has been exceptional. The resort is superbly managed. The facilities are all high quality. The staff is extremely accommodating. The lake and beach are inviting. Ryan and Liz (management/owners) are a joy to deal with.
Our family of 16 had to find a new summer spot after 30 years near Walker, MN - very difficult to do! We found Half Moon Trail and voilà, let’s hope for another 30 years! Everything at this beautifully-maintained second generation family-owned resort is sparkling! Expansive grounds, amazing flower gardens, comfy well-appointed cabins, cleanliness not to be beat, children-friendly, welcoming hosts, beautiful quiet lake, lovely large sandy beach and a heated pool - everything we were looking to find and more. Despite the number of cabins there is no sense of crowding - it’s peaceful. This resort exudes care for their guests. From 4 to 72! we all loved it and have booked 3 cabins for next year! Thank you Liz and Ryan for this beautiful spot on Earth!
Spent our 7th year, I think, at Half Moon Trail for a week in July. Great resort and wonderfully maintained. Our cabin is always in great shape, and we love the views, the people, and the activities. Will keep coming back!
Our family has been coming here for 20 years and been in many of the cabins. We stay in cabin 19, the reunion one and love it. Provides more than enough space for 14 of us and gives us room for a big family. The resort is well maintained and has scheduled activities for kids and adults. The lodge has many things to offer from apparel to ice cream! Would highly recommend and will definitely be back next year!! Highlight of our summer!
Three generations of our extended family (20+ members) have been vacationing together at this resort for 20+ years. It's the one week of the year where Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles & Cousins live "next door" to each other for a whole week and we have made so many memories! The resort is beautiful, clean and has so many amenities and activities to please all ages. This year they added a Pickleball court and it is fantastic!
We absolutely love Half Moon Trail. This was our fifth summer spending time together as a family at this lovely resort. We love the owners and cherish the time we get to spend with other families we have met over the years. The grounds are splendid, immaculately kept, and offer a real sense of escape from the busy-ness of every-day life. The lake is beautiful and they offer many free options to take the most advantage of the lake. We rent the pontoon every year and never regret it as it offers us the ability to explore the whole lake (we swim and fish!) The activities remind me of my childhood, including carpetball, minnow races, s'mores by the fire and sweet and memory-making crafts. We highly recommend Half Moon Trail and know it will become a favorite part of your summer too.
