Inside the Resort Lodge...

What originally began in 1951 as a "Fishing Camp" has been transformed throughout the years and  is now a well maintained resort with a rustic unique lodge for our guest to enjoy.

Our lodge offers a full bar, tap & bottled beer, liquor, cable TV, darts, Juke-box, pool table and is air conditioned. Let us serve you a delicious hot pizza while enjoying a cold beer or your favorite beverage in our NEW spacious bar looking out over the lake. We also have other resort necessities like resort clothing, ice, pop, candy, ice cream treats and more.

Enjoy the relaxing atmosphere in a tranquil place which allows you to relax and escape from the stress and strains of everyday life and to "recharge" your batteries while sitting outside on our deck overlooking Beautiful Cass Lake! Located only 220 miles north of the Twin Cities, in the heart of the Chippewa National Forest, Cass Lake is a popular destination for recreational fishing, boating & swimming.

Wishbone Resort is the perfect place where you can vacation & have it all!
Watch the majestic bald eagles soar, and hear the call of our state bird, the Common Loon.

We here at Wishbone Resort are so pleased with the wonderful emails, letters and video letting us know how much you enjoyed your time with us at our Resort! We strive and work very hard to make your stay with us memorable, pleasant and enjoyable! We would like to THANK YOU ALL for choosing to spend your vacation time with us!

I just wanted to take some time to drop you a line and let you know how much we enjoyed our stay with you. I was part of the church group from Iowa that stayed with you the week of the 4th to the 11th in June. I was very impressed with your staff, they were always right there ready to help, full of information and willing to go the extra mile. I was also very impressed with how well kept your property and equipment are. The cabins were very clean and comfortable. Your boats were a joy to use, motors always started with little effort. Fishing was great too (more God’s doing than yours, but I will give you credit)! Thanks again for the wonderful week!

God Bless you and your staff.

Bill, Lois, Ronnie, Tracey, Thanks so much for a great trip this year. Sure was nice that the fish cooperated as well. As always it is the highlight of our summer. Hope to see you all again this summer some time.

Hello, Thank you so much for all your hospitality in making our stay at the resort a wonderful experience! We enjoyed every minute of it – very nice facilities. See you again in years to come!

The Millers, I just wanted to drop an e-mail to let you know how much we enjoyed ourselves at your resort. We got to spend a wonderful week with my grandparents, which I'm not sure if that will happen again(89 and 83 yrs old), my son(17 months) reeled in his first fish and got to just relax and feel at home. Both my wife and I loved the cabin(17) and can't wait to get back. I am looking forward for the years to come and spending more time at Wishbone Resort with my family.

Thanks again,
–Mark P.

Hello everyone at Wishbone! We had a great time with the grandkids! You guys have a wonderful resort for the family or just the guys fishing! Hope to see you all again next year!
