We invite you to start your family's own vacation tradition at Arcadia Lodge this year.  Located on the shores of Big Turtle Lake, Arcadia Lodge is a Minnesota family resort located in the north-central part of the state, 40 miles north of Grand Rapids, just off the Edge of the Wilderness National Scenic Byway.  It is completely surrounded by the Chippewa National Forest. Sparkling clear blue waters, the call of the loon, a soaring eagle and the tranquility of a newborn fawn are all part of the true northwoods getaway that guests experience here.

What is Arcadia Lodge?

Arcadia Lodge is a family oriented resort located in the heart of Minnesota's northland. Operated since 1992 by the Jones' clan, Arcadia has grown into one of the largest family resorts in Minnesota. Originating as a home of excellent Smallmouth Bass fishing with 10 small cabins, Arcadia has become a home not only to fishermen but their families as well. Rebuilt in the early 2000's, all of Arcadia's cabins have been built with all the comforts of home. Sporting a huge beach with multiple water toys for those sunny summer days and a Lodge full of games for when you just can't swim anymore, there's always something for the family to do. A full marina offers watercraft rentals, boat launch, powered dock slips, canoes (free to use), & fish cleaning facility. Rent pontoons, 14' fishing boats, 16' fishing rigs or jet ski's for a fun day or week on the water.
