Resort Activities at The Pines

Your stay at The Pines Resort is sure to be one of your fondest memories of the northwoods.  Since we are open year-around we offer activities for all ages and all seasons!

In the summer months families enjoy our swimming dock secured in a sandy bottom with a gentle slope. You can lay on the dock soaking up the sun or hit the waves with a pair of water-skis or a tube. Are your kids adventurers? If so, you can explore the shoreline and the creatures that inhabit it from a kayak or a canoe. Use of both are free to our guests. Lake Winnibigoshish is a world-class fishery so even fishing from our docks can be exciting - especially for the kids.

No matter what your idea of the perfect summer day, you'll find it in the clean, clear waters of Lake Winnie.New For 2014 we're adding a Pirate Ship Playground for kids of all ages in addition to the old playground set shown here.The young and the young-at-heart also enjoy our horseshoes and volleyball court.

In all seasons Lake Winnie and the Chippewa National Forest provide some incredible opportunities to see wildlife in their natural habitat. Out on the lake you are likely to see bald eagles, loons, osprey, herons, pelicans and songbirds. Hike or cross-country ski on the nearby trails and you might catch sight of deer, squirrels, chipmunks and a multitude of other small woodland animals. Occasionally you might even have the thrill of seeing black bear, wolves or a moose. With a forest full of hardwood trees and pines - many of which are a hundred years old - you will enjoy nature at its best and most beautiful.

Our Lodge is a great place to find fun things to do for the whole family. We have a snack bar with microwave sandwiches, pizzas, breakfasty things and
