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.
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
