By now, it’s no secret that McGregor, Minnesota, is surrounded by some of the best snowmobile trails in the state. And as much as we love and appreciate other winter sports like snowshoeing, skiing, and ice fishing, there’s something unforgettable about a top-speed rip through waist-high layers of fresh powder as you uncover seemingly unknown areas.
In just a matter of weeks—or days—the Northern Minnesota outside temperature will commence its annual descent. While we certainly adore and appreciate the warm seasons, ice fishing in Minnesota wouldn't be possible without our yearly freeze.
Nestled deep in the Northern Minnesota wilderness along scenic State Highway 65 rests a rustic, picturesque lakefront resort: Big Sandy Lodge & Resort. Not only is our lakeside haven consistently ranked as one of the premier Northern Minnesota resorts, but we’re just minutes away from a wide variety of state parks, wildlife refuges, interconnected ATV trails, and, of course, can’t-miss hidden gems.
