such a wide variety of family-friendly activities and a great sandy swimming beach. Our kids loved the water trampoline and slides.

Minnesota Smallmouth Bass Fishing

Big Turtle Lake
Minnesota's called the Land of 10,000 Lakes for a reason and Big Turtle Lake is the epitome of MN Lakes. No Minnesota family vacation would be complete without time spent on the sky blue waters of Big Turtle Lake. Big Turtle Lake is just over 2,000 acres in size and provides tremendous on the water opportunities. A glacial dug spring feed lake, Big Turtle offers exceptional water clarity and truly unique structure. With over 8 major islands, several bays and numerous coves this home of the Sky Blue Waters is perfect for boaters, fishermen, and wildlife viewers. With the many bays and coves this minnesota lake offers plenty of room for both fishing and watersports. Spend the early mornings hunting the lilly pads for that monster Bass or slip on the skis and skim the Sky Blue Waters. Arcadia is located on the northwest shore of Big Turtle providing stunning views of the lake from your cabin. Check out the Arcadia Lodge waterfront for a selection of canoes and kayaks(free to use) and watercraft rentals. Spend your days with the family on the water with a pontoon or head out fishing with one of our boats.
