“A well thought out resort with owners who never stop giving. Great for young families!”
Reviewed May 28, 2012

Just spent Memorial Day weekend at Dickerson's Lake Florida Resort. An incredible place for kids and parents. Beautiful, clean swimming beach, activities, free wi-fi, beautiful sunsets and FREE homemade donuts on Sunday mornings. Can't wait to go back! I didn't fish this time, but hope to next time we go. The water wasn't too cold, our toddler spent the whole weekend swimming and moving sand on the beach. We were content to relax and watch her keep herself busy. The owners Bob and Connie are AMAZING... Bob even helped me unload my car and get settled into the cabin. Really great people who would give you the shirt off their backs!

This is the 4th year my in-laws have taken our sons to Dickersons for a week in August. It has been one of the best memories my sons have of the summer. My husband and I usually end up gonig for a long weekend to be with them.
There aren't many places like this anymore that are so family oriented. There are so many things for kids to do but don't expect your kids to be "plugged in" for the week, the activities are for the kids to enjoy NATURE not TV or viedo games, they can do that at home. If you absoutely have to have it, they do have wifi I believe but leave the computers at home, there is too much to do!
Biking, fishing, boating, swiming, endless wonderful beach, relaxing, hayrides, pizza night, homeade donughts Sunday mornings. This place is a gem and I am glad to now know Bob and Connie Dickerson, they really do care about familes and kids!!!

Room Tip: We love cabin number 7, its just the perfect size for a family of 4-6 with a nice living room and gr...

This is our 6th year staying w/ Bob and Connie. You can't find a nicer, neater resort in Minnesota. We love the the lakeside cabins and terrific swim area. They go out of their way to make it fun for the kids. Bikes, water toys, huge swim area and the swim raft. It's everything childhood memories are made of. The cabins are modern and super neat. Bob & Connie are meticulous about keeping the resort tidy (see Bob at 7a each morning raking and organizing the beach). As the saying goes "build sandcastles and memories" and we've built a ton of those. Did I mention the great fishing too? It's the total package for a family looking for a relaxing week away. If you must, Willmar is only 15 minutes away and has everything you need...or forgot at home :). Enjoy your time and tell them the Hjerpe's sent you...

Room Tip: Lakeside - but if you have a large group, they have plenty of room.

13 family members gathered to celebrate a 50th wedding anniversary, all our birthdays, Christmas, and an opportunity for cousins to get acquainted. We are a scattered family and this was a memorable occasion. Did Bob and Connie intentionally order the best weather of the entire summer for us, or is that the way they treat all their guests? Every thing we needed was provided practically before we asked. Kids loved all the bike options, water toys, and kids water skiing adventure was the best. Fire ring s'mores, hay ride, and catering to all our kids made us love you even more, if that is possible. Amazing sunsets and beach cleaned every morning - 5 stars are inadequate! Thank you both!!

This was our 16th year vacationing at Dickerson's. The week goes by so fast. With daily visits (some times several times a day) of all 17 of us coming to the store to visit with Bob and Connie, they always make us feel welcome and always have time for us. Having a store on site is so convenient. The cabins, grounds and beach are kept immaculate. I love being able to take my daily jogs/walk in the area. Bob made sure we had excellent weather for the week. :) The fish were biting and we were all sad when it was time to leave. Looking forward to year number 17 in 2012!

We just had another great week at Lake Florida. It is a wonderful family vacation spot. My son Asher and I went out for a walk one morning and he looked at me and said, "Mom, I just love it here." I couldn't agree more. We would highly recommend it for any family vacation. The lake is wonderful and the beach is beautiful. Bob and Connie do a tremendous job maintaining the resort and ensuring that everyone has a wonderful vacation experience.

I would like to express thanks on behalf of my entire family for the very enjoyable and relaxing week we spent at Dickerson’s resort. In all, eighteen of us stayed the week and we found the resort and cabins to be spotless and very well appointed. In particular, we very much appreciated the resort’s shaded lawn and beautiful lake shore through what turned out to be one of the hottest weeks on record. The water was perfect and the resort is well-stocked with beach and water toys, and fishing rods and bait, life jackets, charcoal and lighter fluid were all available.

Because we were staying close to our home town, we knew that a number of guests would visit us on different days. Just as we were asked when we arrived, we simply told the Dickersons who our guests would be and they were welcomed. We also played lawn games the entire week and were asked only to shift the game to give the grass a rest.

Again, we really enjoyed our week at Dickerson’s and we look forward to the next time our family can get together ‘at the lake’.
