Fishing, Family, Friends & Fun!


Thank You for stopping by Lakewood Lodge Where It’s Better Up North! We invite you to look around our site and see what our Minnesota resort has to offer for a memorable Minnesota family vacation and a great Minnesota fishing experience on Sand Lake in Deer River, MN.

Lakewood Lodge specializes in providing year-round fun-filled Minnesota family resorts vacations and awesome fishing on a quiet bay of Sand Lake, part of the Bowstring Chain of Lakes. We are located 38 miles northwest of Grand Rapids, MN and 50 miles northeast of Bemidji, MN in the Chippewa National Forest of northern Minnesota.

Lakewood Lodge offers 14 exceptionally clean lake cabins to provide you with a MN family vacation and a MN fishing experience you will never forget, a fantastic swimming beach with water toys, kids activities for all ages, great fall and winter get-a-ways and awesome sportsman’s opportunities. In 2007 we added 11 additional acres of land, built a new lodge, built eight new cabins, two new fish cleaning houses that are open year round, a new dock system with electricity, a new playground, and added new pontoons and Lund fishing boats.
