Very nice resort located near the north end of Lake Kabetogama. Nice setting. Beds are not very good, too soft. Staff is not very helpful or friendly. Maybe they are tired after a long summer. We have stayed at other resorts at Voyageurs with much better service. The Moose cabin is nicely located on the resort property

We lived in northern MN on the Iron Range for a time and did alot of fishing and camping. We've been back several times since moving and I have to say this was our best experience. Kabetogama is always our choice because we know we will catch fish.

We stayed in the newly remodeled Teton Cabin at the Northern Lights Resort. The cabin had an open floorplan for the living room, dining area and kitchen, 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, a screen porch and deck. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They have a Saturday barbeque for a charity donation and a Sunday night ice cream social. The dock was staffed from 7am to 8pm with help getting into and out from the dock and someone to clean your fish. Anything you needed in the way of bait or ice was self help and charged to your cabin.

The weather was surprisingly hot for northern MN, high 80's and into the 90's, for the end of August. Fishing started out slow but it was steady all week. Caught some big northerns and walleyes and enough smaller walleye and sauger to have a fish fry.

Had a great time and would definitely go back.

Room tip: Resort has wifi but don't count on a cell signal until you are out on the main highway.

We stayed at the Moose cabin at Northern Lights Resort. It has a fabulous view of Lake Kabetogama. If you are tall be prepared for your feet to hang off the edge of the twin beds, they seemed a bit short. The kitchen was fully stocked with pots, pans, dishes and utensils. The only thing they didn't have that we needed was a colander. Bring a towel for the floor because the second bathroom has an odd shaped shower and water tended to sneak out from under the shower curtain - or just use the shower in the first bathroom that has a tub connected to it. We really liked the cabin. We rented a pontoon boat while we were there. They helped us dock it at the lodge area or we could dock the boat on our small dock in front of our cabin during the day. They offered to clean any fish we caught. Unfortunately we didn't catch anything. We had kids ages 8, 10, 11 and 15 with us. They participated in the Kids Quest programs and enjoyed them. They have a library of VHS and DVD's that you can check out for free so if the weather or bugs keep you inside you have plenty of choices of what to watch. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They have a lot of water activities for the kids - hydro bikes, canoes, etc. Unfortunately the temps were high 60's/low 70's so the kids didn't go in the lake to test out all the equipment. Sure looked like fun though. Would go back again.

We stayed at NLRO for the 2nd yr. in a row and it was just as lovely as before! The first few days were rainy but the last few made up for it! We did catch a few more fish than last year but not as many as we thought we would (might have a little to do w/a 4 yr. old being on the boat?) but it is such a peaceful place to be and enjoy! We stayed in the Northern cabin this yr.as the Muskie wasn't available. Very clean and nice!! The queen bed in the one bedroom was a little uncomfortable for me and I slept in the twin instead. The chipmunks were a big hit again and the girls(4&13) even got to see a turtle laying it's eggs. The Eagles are my favorite and we saw one eating a seagull. Never knew they would eat a gull but now I do!! Also caught my first Walleye it was 18 inc. so we had to release it but it was fun to catch! We had a great trip and it went way to fast again. Still no time to hike but maybe next year. Thanks to all who are there and run the place for another great vacation!!!

When we drive 5 hours up to the northern country, we do so for a variety of reasons. Some folks like to get up early and fish, some like to commune with nature and spend time swimming and hiking, and some folks just like to sleep in.

Well, 2 out of three isn't bad.

We enjoyed our cabin at Northern Lights, and most of the staff we met were SO helpful and kind, but the retreat is setup for folks to spend a week there, and if you deviate from this by - oh, wanting to stay over on Saturday - you'll pay with loud mowers and leaf blowers outside your window at 7am.

Apparently 7am on Saturday is the only time they can do the mowing and leaf blowing, or so I was told by one staff member who replied to my low-key complaint, "I shall direct your comments to our management..." in an 'offended concierge' accent which was meant to relay his contempt for the slovenliness of down-stater city folk who can't get with the 7am lawn manicure program.

We had a great time, but it's pretty sad when our busy street in St. Paul city proper is quieter than Voyageurs National Park (and has less gas-fueled noise, at that!)

Room tip: The Bass Cabin is on the direct road to the boat ramp, so expect a LOT of trailers going by early in the morning!
