There's More to Life Than Just Ice Fishing (No, Really!)
I was sitting here earlier on Superbowl Sunday looking out at a bright, beautiful winter day. It was so pretty out there that it made my heart hurt.

I'm a fair weather fisherman. I like to ice ...

Move over, Summer. There's a new season in town...
I don't know if you've noticed or not but summer is almost over. The back-to-school retailers would have you believe summer is over in mid-July when they start pushing you to buy folders and No. 2 pencils. However, by this time of year it really is true....summer is moving on out and fall in Minnesota is on the horizon!
Minnesota fall color tours are the prime reason most folks head north in ...
Top 5 Reasons to Vacation at a Minnesota Family Resort
VACATION - It might seem obvious but not everyone vacations. Sometimes you truly can't afford the time off. However, for most of us it really is possible to sneak away for even a few days at a time. Jay and I often forego a winter vacation because we can't afford it or the girls are too busy or the resort is too busy, etc. The truth is, however, that we CAN carve time ...
It's Not Too Late to Plan a Minnesota Summer Vacation
Minnesota summer vacation season is well underway at Wildwood Resort! We have kids laughing on the playground and playing in the lake on the SUPs and hydro-bikes.

Traditionally we have few July openings. However, as families get busier the vacation planning ...

Calling All Snowmobilers!
Most people we know aren't very happy about snow and cold temps during the winter. But we are doing our happy dance today over the 5" of fresh snow we got yesterday. Trails last weekend were great according to our friends who got out on their snowmobiles. However, we had no decent access to trails from Wildwood until it snowed again yesterday. So I guess I'm saying if you haven't made plans for a Minnesota winter getaway then check us out! We ...
What A Difference a Week Makes!
Just 10 days ago we were experiencing near perfect snowmobiling conditions. We rode with the kids and we rode with friends. And it was good. Today the entire outdoors is an ice skating rink. Thanks to rain and warm temps over last weekend what snow we have left is rock hard. Sigh. Mother Nature giveth and she taketh away. We haven't given up hope, though! There's lots of winter left so we're hoping and watching the sky for the white ...
