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.

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, paddle boards (free to use), & fish cleaning facility. Rent pontoons, fishing boats or jet ski's for a fun day or week on the water.


With modern, cozy, & comfortable cabins

Experience a Minnesota family resort in style!

We have 28 cabins to choose from! The cabins range in size from 1 - 11 bedrooms with all the amenities you could ask for. There's even a cozy single bedroom cabins for two.

Vacationing Made Simple! 

We prefer to make your vacation at our MN Family Resort as simple has possible. Built into your cabins rate are the Activities and Amenities mentioned above along with more! Our goal is to never "nickle and & Dime" our guests. Each cabin rate covers the number of guests it can sleep in beds. For example the Beachside cabin has 2 queen, 2 full & 2 twin beds. The weekly rate covers the 10 guests sleeping in beds and if you choose to add an extra or 2 on the futon then an extra person charge would be added. The amenities of the resort are included for ALL guests regardless of the cabin they rent. Docking, Firewood, Wi-Fi, Non-Motorized Watercraft, Games, On-Site Boat Launch, the Large Sandy Beach & Swimming Area, and of course the Largest Floating Waterpark/Playground in Northern Minnesota!! For kids we run an extensive activities program each week of the summer and adults have the option (for a small fee) to participate in many of them. The Activities which are welcome to adults at no extra charge are Tubing, Yoga, Bingo & Trivia.
