While staying at Woodland Trails Resort you can experience nature at it's finest. Watch the eagles fly overhead and listen to the call of the loons. If you like to walk early in the morning don't be surprised if you see deer grazing in our open playing field.

Woodland Trails Resort is the only resort on Strawberry Lake. The fishing is great and the waters are clear in our spring-fed 1600+ acre lake. Woodland Trails also surrounds the lower third of Raspberry Lake, a small lake that is perfect for canoe and paddleboat rides.

Woodland Trails has five cabins available for rental. Three are located directly on Strawberry Lake. The other two cabins are located above the lodge, with a large wrap-around deck overlooking Strawberry Lake. (The best sunset views on the Lake!) These duplex units are our newest cabins, have a spacious backyard area and are great for large family groups.

Seasonal RV camping with generous sized lots is also available. Most sites have a view of the lake, and thirty of the sites are alongside Strawberry Lake.


The Lodge


There's lots to do at Woodland Trails. Shoot some baskets, serve the volleyball, throw a couple of horseshoes, or take a leisurely ride along the shore in a paddleboat or canoe. Miles of beautiful hiking trails entice you to exercise and relax as you view nature at its best. Bring your camera to capture that unexpected glimpse of wildlife as you hike the winding trails. When the sun isn't shining, you can find plenty to do in our lodge. Play some pool or board games, or just read a book. We have a small lending library of books and magazines available for your use while you vacation here.

History of the Resort

In the late 1880's the resort was a sawmill and logging camp. Over the next 30 years, the entire area (and most of Northern Minnesota) was completely logged off.

In the 1910s, the resort was a farm operated by the Koskis, a Finnish family. The farm house was built, along with the soakhouse (this was the original Finnish bathhouse). The farm was primarily a dairy farm. The barn and silo were built in 1949. The resort's main play field was a pasture, along with the open area on the hill behind the lodge. The front 80 acres of the resort along the highway was crop land. It has since been replanted with evergreens. Originally Loon Drive, the township road that leads to the resort, was simply a winding trail that followed the tops of beaver dams.

All that remains from the farming days are the barn and silo visible in the background.

Woodland Trails Resort was founded in 1959 as Cummings Campsites by Willis and Perle Cummings. The resort was sold in 1970 to the Jerry and Pat Walter and renamed Woodland Trails Resort. The lodge was built in 1980. The resort was sold to Dwayne and Darlene Stigsell in 1986. In 2001 Dan and Dawn Sullivan purchased Woodland Trails.


The resort purchases many hard-to-find items through eBay. I highly recommend this free sniping service eBay Sniper for all your bids placed on eBay.
