We wanted a family resort trip to the Park Rapids area and were overwhelmed by the numerous options. How fortunate we were to end up at Bear Paw. The Hays family are so friendly, accommodating and helpful. Very clean, comfortable and spacious cabins. Nice and quiet with enough going on but not so overdeveloped that you no longer feel like you are in Northern Minnesota either. Close to Itasca State Park was a real plus for us too. We could not have been more pleased with our choice, definitely will go back.
