Things to Do

Loon’s Nest Resort and the Park Rapids Area Offer Guests a Wide Variety of Activities

Location…location…location. Of course there’s good fishing on Fish Hook Lake, but that’s not all the area has to offer. In fact, the Park Rapids area is one of the premier vacation spots in Minnesota.  Loon’s Nest Resort is ideally located on the western shore of the lake with quick access to; the mouth of the Fish Hook River for kayaking, bike trails, great golf courses, shopping and dining, and many other things to do.  You can have a great vacation without ever leaving the resort, but you’ll probably want to checkout some of the area attractions.  Below are just a few of the “things to do.”
