For 27 years our family stayed at a resort/campground by Park Rapids. When the resort closed, we didn't think we'd find one to accommodate 35 of us. We couldn't believe our luck when we found Bear Paw! This was our 3rd year there so the tradition continues..for many, many years we hope! The grounds are beautiful, the beach and park areas are great, especially with all the new amenities ..something for all ages! The cabins are immaculate, nicely decorated and comfy. Yes, Joel and Tracey visit with us and sometimes join us at a campfire, but..in my opinion, good hosts want to get to know their guests and vice versa. They'll bandage wounds, fix the squeaks and anything else they can do to make your stay enjoyable. Bear Paw is a fabulous place to vacation!
