Take a look at "North Star Lake Resort", should be able to find their website no problem if you type the name into a search engine. They are located on...you guessed it...North Star Lake near Marcell. Kid/family friendly is what they are all about. Great people and lots of activities for the little ones.

I'll second North Star Resort. We stayed there 6 years in a row when my kid's were young, 3 to 10 years old. Now they are 11 and 14 and they want to go back. The lake has good crappie and decent sunfish at least what I caught. Both kinds of bass are there plus northerns and muskie. The walleye stocking has made it a better walleye fishery than when we were there.

Moose Lake Resort is another great option, excellent walleye and muskie lake, great beach and nice people. They have a website if you google them.

Try Gus' Place on Ball Club too. Reasonable prices, good fishing for pike, walleye and panfish. Gus and Susan will take good care of you and help you out with the fishing.

While all of the resorts listed are great resorts I am a little partial to Lakewood Lodge as well. We are a kid friendly resort on a quiet bay of a great lake. We have a nice sand beach that we do treat for swimmers itch. As a matter of fact we just put an 8" sand blanket on top of the ice that will eventually fall to the bottom to help improve our beach area. We have lots of water toys and a new, big playground. We do offer kids activities throughout the week (prime summer season only) All our cabins also have cable tv in case there are periods where playing outdoors isn't possible. Ok, enough of the sales pitch. All of the resorts listed ARE good family resorts. You should visit all their websites including lakewoodlodge.com and find the resort that best offers what you are looking for, and has availability. If we do not have what you need but would like some assistance in finding a resort that does meet your needs feel free to call us and we will try to help.

      After superbowl sounds good to me that will give it time for this slush and slop to freeze as well

      I bet that cedar lake was borderline to drive on before the warm up in the first place.
