The Brainerd Lakes area of north central Minnesota is one of the top vacation destinations in the upper Midwest. Brainerd and the surrounding area offers a multitude of sports, recreation, and entertainment for everyone. Fishing is popular throughout the year while the winter attracts icefishermen, snowmobilers and skiers with both downhill and cross country.

The warmer months attract those interested in activities such as boating, water skiing, golf, and bicycling.  If the weather is just plain lousy, you can relax here at The Arrowwood Lodge and enjoy the Water Park and arcade, watch a video, or check out the pub.
