Explore Bear Island Lake on a cookout or overnight!

Bring a staff member with you or venture out on your own. All equipment, with the exception of sleeping bags and personal gear (i.e., rain gear, toiletries, etc.), is available in the COVE. Our staff will help in planning your cookout or overnight, and assist you in packing out your equipment and food for your special family get-away. Groups are limited to nine members, including one staff if you choose to have one accompany your family. Participants are charged $5 per person for a cookout and $8 per person for an overnight.

The Activity Sign-up Form must be filled out and received by mail, email or fax: 612-223-6322 to our Customer Service Center at least one week prior to your arrival.
