Hello,
We have stayed at Northern Lights resort 3 yrs ago and enjoyed it. Now we are planning our summer vacation this yr. I have checked all the resorts on Kab and know about the ones towards the visitor center from Northern lights but not going towards Echo Bay trail. Hoping you could suggest one or more. We're looking for private-not many cabins-nice beach for kids, would prefer no campgound or rv sites. I did e-mail kab website and they only suggested sandy point for the beach.
We're trying for something a little more
private. Any suggestions greatly appreciated. Thanks.

The best source of info is the Kab website, the best beach I know of at a resort on the West end is Tomahawk Resort, they do not have a bar or restaraunt so I believe its fairly quiet there. LOL guts, <{{{{><

Thanks for your quick reply...Tomahawk does have best beach, but a little to open area for us. We're trying for other end of Kab...Wondering if you know anything about voy park lodge? I think we've narrowed it down to that,park point,rocky point and Moosehorn(although not keen on rv sites).
Once again, thanks...

Might I suggest a resort on Crane. Pine Point Lodge. It's about a mile ride by boat from the town of Crane (from right where Voyagaire Houseboats is). Secluded (no roads), clean & friendly. They have a lodge where you can get provisions, bait & boat/motor rentals. From Crane you can fish Sand Point, Little Vermillion, Namakan & Kabtogama (Crane is pretty good on its own).

I have been going to Moosehorn for 12-15 years. They have probably the nicest docks on the lake, except for the Park Service.<P>They also have a very nice sloping beach. They do have two RV sights that are not seasonal. The RV hilltop is very quite. They are fussy about who they let stay.<P>They do not have a bar or restaurant, so if you want to go out to eat you will have to travel. That is a plus or minus depending on your needs.<P>Good luck with whatever you decide as this is a VERY nice area!

Don't go to Rocky Pt!!!! I stayed there once, said it had a beach, but it was actually part of the boat ramp, with gasoline and dead minnows floating in it ,the place is not for families.The cabin we had was on a big rock and about everytime you went to the bathroom the septic tank backed up, they said try not to go to the bathroom to much! very first time i went to wash my hands i heard water dripping, i looked underneath , the drain pipe fell off, had to fix it myself, the furnace worked sometimes. For the money i paid i wound not stay here again, this was a few years back though unless things changed i would go somewhere else.

Thanks for the info on Rocky point. I think we've narrowed it down to 3...Park point-voyageur park lodge and moosehorn. If anyone knows about park point or voyageur park,drop a line otherwise we'll just try one and see how it goes...thanks again for all the replys--

Meeko,
I've stayed at several resorts on Kab and at Wooden Frog Campground, all are nice but my favorite was Deer Horn Resort. Great people, friendly willing to go out of their way to make sure you're having a good time and catching fish. Another thing I really liked about their resort was, when the weather was poor and the wind was really blowing we fished right off the dock and we caught lots of Sauger, Walleye and Northern. And to top it off the prices were easy to live with.

Meeko, How do I say this and remain politically correct? .... Voyager Park basically has no beach. They hauled in several loads of sand and had it placed next to the shore. They do have space for aprox 4-5 chairs if you want sit in the sand next to the water.

They also have marginal docks/breakwater. This would not be high on my list of places to stay.

I know the owner or Park Point through the owner of Moosehorn. They are friends. He seems like a nice guy. I do not know anything about his resort. Sorry that I can't give you any additional info on that resort

This June will be my 17th year staying at Park Point. I am 23 and have been going to Kabe since I was six on a family vaction and just love it. Park Point is usually a very nice quiet resort. The cabins have been remodeled over the years and offer a pleasant place to stay and nice view of the lake.

It offers a sand beach that can be nice depending on the water height(high water means most of the beach is covered). There is a paddle boat and a canoe available at no extra charge.

I've only stayed here and once at Kec's Kove in the fall on a all guys fishing trip. The only reason we chose Kec's Kove is because of the Resteraunt and Bar.

The owner's of Park Point are very friendly and I would recommend this resort to anyone. My family and I will be up the first week in June. Goodluck selecting a resort.

Rudy,
we like park point and it does offer bigger
cabins than moosehorn. It's hard to tell by
their web page the cabins layout is sketched, could you tell me is cabin 1 & 2 (3 bdrm cabins) about the same or which you would suggest. I think we'll be happy regardless but its nice get another viewpoint. We're heading up in mid Aug. Thanks again to all the replys....

OK, Good Luck!

I stayed at Northern Lights about 30 years ago. It has changed hands at least 3 times that I know of.

I did not want to say too much, because everyone has different needs. Moosehorn has a really nice beach and a number of water toys.

They also have a fair amount of space between cabins compared to most in the area. Of course it all depends on which cabin you end up in.

Let me know if/when you are going to be up there, maybe we can swap some fishing info?

When I was younger we stayed in cabin #1 for a few years and then later stayed in cabin #2. Personally I liked the layout of cabin #1 much better. It seems to offer more open space. Cabin #2 used to have bunk beds in one of the rooms(2 single beds as mentioned in the brochure). This is just what I remember, it has probably been almost 10 years since we stayed in one of those cabins--we have since moved down by the lake in cabins #5 and #6.

I will warn you that both of these cabins are up on a hill away from the boat docks(bait, gas and such) and require a slight hike to get back up to your cabin after fishing. But all in all not too bad. I hope you enjoy your stay at Park Point.

We've been staying at Snyder's Idlewild (and before that Whipple's Idlewild) most years since 1976. It is a very nice resort. One thing it has that I don't think anyone else on the lake has is a swimming pool. That works out real well when the water in the lake is too cold for swimming (early June can be cold). I would definitely recommend it.
Its located on the southwest corner of the lake.
