Family Vacation Resorts include the large Minnesota resorts that are well known for their extensive facilities and recreational opportunities. Another type of family resort is the small, family owned resort that is a collection of individual cabins. We grew up taking our vacations in these cabin resorts and went back to the same place year after year. You are not as likely to find these family resorts listed online and may want to call the tourism office in the area you want to visit to see what is available.

A couple of times we rented a small cabin at what is now Cragun's Resort. When our own children were young, we camped all over Minnesota.
