About Us


Woodland Beach Resort nestled along Bay Lake is the perfect place to hold a retreat with friends.


Located on beautiful Bay Lake, a 2,392 acre lake of bays, points and islands, that is one of the top bass fishing lakes in Minnesota. A short 2 hour drive from the Twin Cities, brings you to the heart of the lakes area. We are located 10 minutes from Mille Lacs Lake, Minnesota's premier walleye factory. 20 minutes from Grand Casino and 20 minutes from Brainerd. A variety of golf courses, tennis courts, restaurants, movies, amusement parks,museums and shopping are all a short drive away. We have 20, 1-4 bedroom clean, modern, knotty pine cabins; all with AIR CONDITIONING, fully equipped kitchens, including microwaves and cable TV. Wireless internet. All our cabins have decks with picnic tables and Weber cookers. We have a POOL & HUGE HOT TUB (new summer of 2015), children's playground equipment, ping pong, horseshoes, tetherball and basketball, as well as a newly landscaped beach and shoreline. We have added two firepits with seating to enjoy bonfires on the lakeshore; perfect for hotdogs and s'mores. The safe sand beach, enclosed by a U-shaped dock, with its gradual slope and no drop-off is a constant source of fun on this spring-fed lake. We offer boats, canoe, paddleboats, kayaks, paddle boards and pontoons; or bring your own boat and tie it safely to one of our many docks. Bay Lake has wonderful bass, walleye, crappie, sunfish, and northern pike fishing. With its many bays, Bay Lake is safe on the windiest of days. We have a store on the premises with milk, bread, snacks, sundries and ice cream. We also have a grill featuring pizza.

We feel so blessed to be entering into our 14th season at Woodland Beach Resort. After many years of searching and viewing various resorts we fell in love with Woodland Beach. We were told once during the search that you can change anything about the resort, but you can’t change the lake. Beautiful Bay lake has it all. Bay lake has great fishing, recreational opportunities, and with its many bays and points is very scenic – a true gem of the north. The range of cabins from modern to classic gave the resort unique character. This has been an amazing place to raise our family.

Emily, Evan and Briana are happy to help make your stay more enjoyable. They are 20 years old and will be junior’s in college this fall. Emily is enjoying a pre-vet program at UW-Madison, Evan is in business at Minnesota and Briana is in real estate at UW-Madison.  During the summer (work schedule permitting) your will see them out and about with friends, likely in the water.
