About Us

Aitkin Lake Resort and Campground, located on the south-west shore of Aitkin Lake, was established in 1926. Our undeveloped wooded area is rare to find in such close proximity to a metropolitan area.

This is a spot where you can still enjoy complete peace and tranquility. Many kinds of wild flowers can be seen along our wooded trails, including the Minnesota State Flower, the Showy Lady Slipper. It is a photographer’s and nature lover’s delight.

Aitkin Lake is a wilderness-type lake noted for the many species of waterfowl and wildlife. Some of them include the bald eagle, deer, black bear, otter, beaver and a wide variety of ducks and water birds. The many bays and inlets are enjoyed by the fisherman and canoeist alike.

Fishing at its Best

Aitkin Lake is connected via Aitkin Lake Flowage to Big Sandy Lake with a total of more than 160 miles of shoreline. A variety of fish including walleye, northern, crappie, sunfish, bass, perch, and bullhead can be found in the lakes. Aitkin-Big Sandy Lake is ranked consistently in the top ten fishing lakes in Minnesota. Aitkin Lake has produced two state record fish in past years, a bass at 8 lb. 12 oz. and a bluegill at 2 lb. 2 oz. Fishermen of every age can have fun fishing off one of our docks next to the campground.


Aitkin Lake Resort offers clean, comfortable, modern housekeeping log cabins. They have a unique rustic charm and are ideally situated under large shade trees with a nice view of the lake.

Other Recreation

We have a large playground area and equipment for basketball and horseshoes. Guests can also enjoy an evening out at one of the nearby dining clubs which provide excellent food and live entertainment for your dancing or listening pleasure. There are also historical points of interest, tennis courts, golf clubs, gift and antique shops within 10 miles of our resort.


Our campground is located along the shores of Aitkin Lake. The campsites include water and electric hook-ups and picnic tables. There are fire rings with firewood available. Sitting around a fire next to a moonlit lake is still one of the main enjoyments of the avid camper.

For tenters that still like to enjoy the quiet beauty of a natural setting, we have a beautiful shaded point at the end of the campground. A shower house and toilet facility are available and, along with our premises, are kept clean and sanitary.
