Things to do in Lake of the Woods
Here at River Bend Resort, we have an array of activities that coincide with the extraordinary landscapes that surround our property. Though every season has its highlights, one of our personal favorites for winter is, hands-down, the ice fishing opportunities that Lake of the Woods offers right outside our doors. Whether you are planning a trip for the family, a special someone, or some of your best fishing companions, an ice fishing adventure is one of the most authentically Minnesotan things to do in Lake of the Woods.
A day on the ice with us sounds like snow lightly crunching under your boots, augers firing up to find that honey hole, food sizzling on the cooktop, and laughter as you and your crew enjoy an immersive fishing experience. Head out early and watch the sunrise reflect off the frozen lake for the perfect view to get you ready for the day and fish to your heart’s content. When the sun begins to set, you can cozy up in our pre-heated Lake of the Woods sleeper houses. Although, before you head off to bed, be sure to step outside and take a gander at the star-filled night sky for the chance of catching a glimpse of the ever-so-captivating aurora borealis. After all, there’s no better place to experience the magic of the great north than out on one of the best fishing lakes in Minnesota.
