There are TONS of things to do in the Crosslake area, you won’t be bored!



  • Cuyuna Lakes Mountain Bike trails: ~30 minute drive. 30 miles of singletrack trails, considered to be the best in the state. Absolutely amazing riding.
  • Paul Bunyan Paved Trail. This is a 120 mile paved rail-trail that connects Brainerd to Bemidji. Best place to access from the cabin is at the city park in Jenkins, 15 minute drive.
  • Road/Gravel riding: Miles of both paved and gravel roads near the cabin – just explore! If you are looking for a route, contact me.


  • GREAT fishing in Star Lake/Ossie Chain, otherwise there are 100’s of lakes nearby. Pleasant and Strawberry lakes which are both within 10 minutes are also stocked with trout and accessible by Canoe/Kayak.

Uppgaard Wildlife Management Area:

Boating on the Whitefish chain:

  • The Whitefish chain is considered to be one of the premier lake chains in Minnesota – not quite as quiet/pristine as Star lake though. There are 2 public accesses less than 10 minutes away on either Cross Lake or Clamshell Lake that will get you onto the chain.
