Dickerson's Lake Florida Resort

Reviewed August 17, 2013

Our family had a great time at Dickerson's for a week. Our daughter did not want to leave. This family friendly resort is perfect for family relaxation. We can't wait to go back. Bob and Connie are great resort owners and are respectful and diligent about all of their clients needs. They are very flexible and helpful with any questions or concerns. Hayride and Pizza was great. Its like being at camp with your family.Thanks again for a great summer getaway.

We came from New York City to join more local family for an incredibly fun and relaxing vacation. Everything was extremely clean (and I am very picky), and there were terrific amenities available on site: a small store (if you ran out of essential food stuff), motor boats/pontoon/water bikes available with 30min notice, multiple kayaks available anytime, canoe and paddle boat available anytime, life jackets, a slide set up to go directly into the lake, sand toys, chairs, swings, bikes--you name it. We needed for nothing (except--and this was the only con the entire trip--there is no dishwasher). My kids were safe and happy and there were additional treats built in: donuts Sunday morning (delicious!), pizza night, campfire night & hayride where each kid gets to drive. Both my 6 and 2 year old cried when we had to leave, and I have promised them we will return. Thanks for the most relaxing vacation we have had in years!

Room Tip: Cabin 12 is huge, newly renovated, comfortable beds, balconies, and on the lake. Family has stayed...

You don't stay in business in this day and age very long running a sub standard resort. Dickersons has it down. Very kid friendly and cabins clean as a whistle. This was our first trip but not the last. Our two sons and wives and total of five grandchildren had a wonderful time at Dickersons. Bob and Connie could not of been better hosts. We have tried several resorts and now have found the perfect place. Can't wait until next year. Skip and Margie Jansen

We have just returned from a perfect get away at Dickerson's Resort. Bob and Connie were so friendly and helpful and did a great job of making us feel welcome. The resort grounds and cabins are all kept so clean. The lake and beach is the best we have ever seen. We visit many resorts and Dickerson's has the perfect swim area. We loved all of the free recreational options including the hydro-bikes and kayaks. My five-year old son learned to kayak by himself and was so proud. Fishing off the docks was perfect for our kids. This resort offered us the perfect balance of relaxation and fun. This was our first visit and it won't be our last.

We family traveled from Texas to stay on Lake Florida. We rented a home from a private person and were given directions to Dickerson's as they have items that we available for purchase for people staying on the lake, gas for boats, a pontoo to rent, etc. My family from MN also inquired about renting cabins from Bob during our stay. Our first introduction to Connie was cold and callus. We had asked about renting their pontoon and according to their website it was a certain fee. She rudely replied saying their guests pay a premium price and they get a break. We understood that and proceeded to ask about non-resident prices, after she told us, she rudely spoke to my 9 year old son saying finishing was not allowed on the pontoon, leisure only. A few days later we drove our boat to the resort to purchase gas, knowing the price was $5.00 per gallon, we asked for gas. My 11 year old daughter and 7 year old niece went into the store and asked if anyone was inside. By the time my father got to the store Bob had accused the girls of calling him names and being rude, told my father to teach your grandchildren some respect. Continued to speak to my cousin that "you people" take revenue from me when you rent from others. This irrational behavior from Bob continued for quite awhile. After this happened, my aunt, from MN told us of her introduction to Bob. She drove to the resort in May to discuss staying at they resort during our stay. She also confirmed that he was extremely rude and disrespectful to her.
Our intent was never to take business away from their resort, as we didn't know it existed and the cabins would not have fulfilled the needs of my family, however their attitude concerning our desire to rent a private caused them to be very rude and ugly to patrons. I have been business for many years, along with many family members and have never seen business owners treat customers or people in the manner. We plan to return to Lake Florida again next year and Bob and Connie could have had new customers rent their extremely expensive cabins from our Minnesota family, but that will not happen now.

Another amazing week at Dickerson's on Lake Fl. near Spicer, MN. #13 cabin was our lucky number this year. The balcony provided shade over picnic tables where we ate all our meals. Bob even installed electric outlets because he knew we like to use electric appliances. Griddle for pancakes or taco shells, roaster for larger meals, and frying pan to cook fresh caught Lake Fl fish all were done outside. Connie Dickerson's beautifully unique flower boxes and containers around all cabins made this flower lover especially happy. Our 6 grandchildren (6-25 years) all think Bob and Connie are the greatest hosts ever - just because s'mores, pizza party, water toys for all ages (kayaks to buckets), hay ride for kids, and their ability to remember every kid's name -really does make them the greatest. Central AC for this hottest week so far this summer made sleeping very restful. Yah Dickerson's!

Room Tip: Lake breeze provided a comfy outdoor time no matter the hour. Sunsets on Lake Fl are spectacular.

Our family was in town to watch the Willmar Stingers. Staying at Dickersons made our visit fun, relaxing and convenient. The lakeside resort was very clean and well cared for.We were able to kayak, swim and sit on the beach enjoying the sunset all while we watched kids play with the many toys and activities provided- a good time was had by all!
