“An Amazing Week at a Wonderful Resort”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2012

My wife and I were delighted to get out of the metro D.C. area to come back to Minnesota to again enjoy "Minnesota Nice" from the Dickerson's and the people at the resort. This is a not only a great place in terms of the clean lake and wonderful sunsets, the "Dickerson's" (Bob and Connie) were wonderful hosts and extremely helpful. They are great with the kids. They helped build a community and enabled guests to interact with appropriate respect. My wife and I have traveled around the world. It is nice coming back to Minnesota, and what a delight to find Dickerson's Resort:-)

I was surprised at how clean the lake and beach were. There were plenty of water toys available for the kids to play with. This place has the most amazing sunsets you will ever see, make sure to have your camera out. The pizza party was great (all you can eat). The owners take pride in this place and it shows. Another great thing about this resort is its location. We did not have to fight traffic on the way home, like you do when you go to the lakes in northern Minnesota.

My family just returned from a week in spicer mn. The week got off to a rocky start as the original resort we had booked turned out to be less than perfect.
We were about to call it quits and just go home. In a last ditch effort I placed a call to the dickersons resort. I'm so happy I did.
The resort is a throw back to days gone by. The lake and the beach are beautiful.
The dickersons offer special activities such as pizza night and hayride night.
By the first night my kids had already made friends and were having a blast.
What started out as a bad week turned out to be a one we'll always remember.
We've already booked our week for next year :)

My family recently stayed at Dickerson's Resort for the first time. The grounds were well maintained and the lake was clean with a clean sandy beach and a clean cottage. There was enough to keep our kids entertained and the atmosphere was quiet and relaxing. Owner-Bob was more than accomodating and Connies donuts were delicious! We have been to many resorts throughout MN searching for the one resort that we can return to each summer and we will be returning to Dickerson's.

We spent the week before Memorial Day at Dickersons and once again it was a great experience. The fishing was great, in 2 and 1/2 days we caught and released 24 Northern Pike and numerous Bass and Crappies. Since Dickersons is the only resort on the lake, we have found Lake Floriday to be a fun fishing lake. Bob and Connie work very hard to maintain their pristine resort as a family friendly place. We have always found the Dickersons to be friendly, caring while giving us our own space. During one visit, a storm came up while we were away from the resort. Bob made sure our boat was secure and above the waves. We very much appreciate Bob and Connie's diligence and hard work that provides with us a great place to relive the lake experience.

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!
