“FABULOUS resort!!! You must stay here if you are visiting Leech Lake!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 December 2009

My family - that has 35 plus people (all ages newborns to grandparents and everything in between - even dogs!) have been staying here for 20 years. We started going when I was 7 years old and I am now a married adult and still make the trip every summer with the family. It is a must visit resort!

They have it all… lovely cottage like cabins right on the lake, a lodge with a bar and small convenient store and game room, TV and wall unit AC in some cabins. Full bathrooms, large family room areas and full kicthens in each cabin. A great family owns the resort and another great family runs it. There is a smaller beech with beautiful views, bonfire pits, pool and hot tub, boat rental and docks available to store your own boat. Large bay and dock walking about to the lake. It is every peaceful and safe there. Very friendly and helpful dock staff. The resort is not far from downtown Walker and the Northern Lights casino. There is also a great bar down the road called the Boathouse/Charlies. The resort is one of the few remaining on this part of the lake. Its great for families with small children and grown children, couples, retirees, fisherman etc. Our family goes for a week every July and we spend all year looking forward to the fabulous time at Big Rock Resort. It is definitely Leech Lakes Finest resort! 

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 January 2009

Our weekend at Big Rock Resort was the ideal way for our family to go on a mid-winter de-pressurizing good time. Two new winterized cabins offer lots of space, plenty of privacy, flat screen HDTV, all the amenities of home, outdoor hot tubs, ice fishing and winter rec all within an unbelievably affordable winter price. The kids want to do this again. Good call dad!

  • Liked — big, new, hot tub, multiple bathrooms, big shower, HDTV, ice fishing

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2005

We spent a week at Big Rock Resort on Leech Lake in Walker. It was a true Up North experience. The cabin we had was nothing fancy but it was very clean and had a fully equipped kitchen. Of course the only dishwasher was me. There is no TV in the cabin we had but who needed it. The view is so fabulous from our cabin that I just wanted to stay outside. The resort has plenty for kids to do as they have a pool, tennis and basketball courts, playground and water toys to use. They have boats to rent and lots of hints or guides to help you fish if you want. If you catch them that is just plain luck. The owners are some of the nicest people you will ever meet and they do everything they can to see that you have a great vacation. It is definitely a place that you will want to return to again and again.
