Minnesota lodges with runways


Recommended Posts

I would appreciate any information regarding minnesota lodges that have runways or runways close by. My friend would like to fly us up to fish for a few days and we are going around the 4th of july for walleyes or northerns. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance!

I believe that Maddens on Gull lake (NW of Brainerd) has a landing strip right next to the golf courses, but I dont think that they rent boats etc. I'm sure there are other places in the area to arrange that tho.

FOOTDOC, there is a runway next to maddens driving range(i work there part time), so maddens is a 2 min shutle away. there is also craguns witch is a 2 min shutle away as well. threre are 7 golf cources to choose from if you want to golf as well. if you would need a guide for your fishing i could hook you up with a couple. maddens dose not rent boats that i know of but craguns dose. gull lake has some awsome fishing.

maddens 218-829-2811
craguns 218-825-2700
e-mail me if you would like a guide. i know of a couple in the area.

I like the Gull Lake suggestion (grass strip) or you could even fly into Brainerd (hard surface) and arrange transportation to Gull. Another option would be the Orr airport for Pelican Lake (hard surface). I was looking at flying up there a while back. There is a local resort that was going to pick us up, but I can't remember the name.

Now that I think of it, most resort areas would have an airport nearby (Ely, Alexandria, Brainerd, Fergus Falls, etc.).

foot , there are quite a few places that you can check on if they may have docking for planes . a few i know of are on crane lake near orr, on Shagwa ( spelling) in ely has 1 place for sure , dont know the name thou , and Lake vermillion ( tower / cook )also has some places. these wouls be for float planes ,, all 3 areas have great fishing on them or real close . i would check with the chamber of commerce for those towns i mentioned above . they should have information for you . ther is many other places you can look int o also , pick the lake and see what is cose to that lake . example of that would be a small airport that is very close to Bowstring lake . Most of the big lakes will have a small airport near by . hope any of that helps . My tip for you would be to try crane lake area , great fishing and very senic and is connected to many large border lakes .

    • yea that place is awesome!!!   been years since I was there...  maybe a road trip and stop at Bongards too!!!  
    • We actually hardly buy any of the candy, but they have so much other good stuff like the Pies, apple bread, canned and jar pickled stuff, hot sauces etc. 😋
    • I drive by that candy barn all the time its crazy how busy it always is. Ive lived not 5 miles from it for 49 years. Been there once.
    • I'm game to try anything but yeah, I'm not into a lot of fruit or sweety meats.  Plus we made our one trip a year down to the Big yellow candy store already this year. 😋
    • 🙄yea you lost me when you mentioned honey!!!!!! and honestly i'm not a fan of all those "extra"ingredients in my meats.....especially that high temp cheese......yucky!!!!   plantenbergs has all kinds of that type of stuff.......i pass, only get plain sausage and brats.   iffin i was still on the union payroll i would take ya up on that as i travelled through belle plaine on my way back from siouxfalls now and then!!!!! now that i'm on a srick budget......thats a long way to go fer a weinie!!!!!🤣
    • Take a trip down to Belle Plaine. I'll show you some good hot dogs.   Just made Minnesota style summer sausage (blueberries wild rice and honey) for thew first time today.     
    • i've lived in Richmond and now cold spring all my life. my brother ordered a half of beef from this place called Homegrown meats , had never heard of it. know why now, when i picked it up it was established in 2020.  its just south of browns lake at the intersection of 22 and cty rd 43.  nice little place.   he called both Plantenbergs and breagelmans in Richmond........they are 6 months out. Breagelmans actually referred my brother to this place.  he said it was cheaper also!!!!!   i'll be taking some venny trimmings to Mcdonalds in 2 weeks for summer sausage and sticks!!!!!   plantenbergs will get the rest for bologna and hot dogs!!!!! you cant eat other bologna or weiners once you've had theirs!  mcdonalds SS and sticks are also topof the line as far as i'm concerned!
    • Which one?  I've been trying them all around the cloud.  Just had Elk burgers from McDonald's Clear lake last week and Bison tonight.  
    • Burgers from a new butcher shop.👍 good flavor 
    • The big pogo stick front shocks took a little getting used too.
