Spent a week at North star lake resort with my daughter and her family and could not have been happier with our stay there. The place is immaculate and well taken care of and Carol and Ken were great.

The cabins are really nice and the grounds clean. The kids had a blast in the lake, pool and arcade. The water trampoline was a huge hit!! Carol was super nice and Woody was awesome! Can't wait to go back!

My extended family and I have been coming here for 16 years straight. We usually have around 40 or more of us, so there are about 3 or 4 cabins left ever. We love coming back here, even if it is a little expensive for the amenities. Eric and Nancy, the two main people who run it are amazing. They...

This is our first time to visit North Star Lake Resort. The cabin that we stayed in was very clean and comfortable. Carol, Eric and the rest of the staff were very friendly and helpful. The Lodge has a nice menu of snacks and pizza which are reasonably priced.We enjoyed our time by the pool. The sandy beach was a...

We had a fantastic trip to the North Star Lake Resort this past 4th of July. Carol and Eric were extremely friendly, helpful and hospitable. Our cabins were so clean when we arrived that you could eat off of the floors. The kids spent most of the weekend on the water trampoline (what a workout!). We loved the deck near...

A couple of things to note...we booked this resort based on a couple of reasons. #1 it was a family resort with things for our 2 year old to do. We were the only cabin rented 4 out of 7 days that we were there. It was a ghost town. #2 they had posted a "fall weekly rate" that was...

We have been going to this resort since I was 3 years old....now 32 and taking my own family! The owners are fantastic and the hospitality is great. The fishing is wonderful for walleyes! I read the other review about the horse flies....yes, some years there have been many, but you can't control it and it doesn't happen often. There...

We spent a terrific week at North Star Lake Resort! Our sons (ages 5 & 6 at the time) absolutely loved the kindernook program - Nancy is just fantastic with the kids. We loved that there were 3-4 fun things planned throughout the day that either the kids could do on their own with the other kids at the resort...

Booked this about a week before the busy 4th of July week. Upon arrival we were greeted by Carol, who gave us some instructions and pointers, then took our 3 year old for a walk while we unpacked for our 4 day stay. Eric is the fishing guide and activities director it seems. I hear he is a good guide....

“The cabins near the beach are the most 'social' - the ones on the lodge side are more secluded/private.”
