 Campfire Bay Resort is a great place to get-away, relax, and reconnect with family, friends, or even yourself!  But don't take our word for it....

 

For the past 25 years, we have vacationed in a variety of resorts but for the past 6 years we have returned to Campfire Bay Resort and we have found our summer home.  Brian & Heather welcome you and it seems like you’re at your resort.  What a peaceful feeling, hearing the waves lap on the shore, hearing the loons call and seeing other wildlife even including eagles flying overhead.  Of course, there’s the great fishing.  Big crappies abound throughout the summer but especially in May & June.  We’ve caught good size walleyes, bass & sunfish too.  Fish Trap Lake has many bays and so offers opportunities to fish no matter what the weather.  The cabins are close to the water for swimming or relaxing on a float.  You can do absolutely nothing but read all day long or participate in a variety of activities.  Water sports; hydro-bikes, paddleboat, canoes, kayaks, dock fishing or creative projects, jewelry making or wood projects are all available.  These are the reasons we continue to return year after year.

Dear Heather, Brian & Family,

Our family would like to thank you once again for making  our week at the cabin a very fun and memorable one. 
 
This was our 8th year at your resort and every year we enjoy the great host and hostess, the many friends we have made over the years and the many activities provided during the week as well as a clean and comfortable cabin. 
 
The ice cream social is great as well as the pontoon ride for the ladies and the fishing contest for the young children.  Our grandchildren especially enjoyed the rocket building, the tie-dye t-shirts, the jewelry making, woodworking and the yummy campfire donuts Brian makes each year!
 
Thank you again for a wonderful week and we are already looking forward to next year!!
 
Larry & Kathy Zika & Family

 

I grew up going to a resort when I was young and I want the same for my girls and we hit the jackpot when we found your resort. I couldn't ask for much more of an experience for them than you offer, so thank you for that.

As for memories being made....we will never forget our time spent at Campfire Bay Resort! The past three years have always been eventful for us (both good and bad), but for sure we will never forget it and we can't wait to come back. It's all the girls talk about for a year is going back to the cabin. I have decided to keep a journal of our times there along with pictures so the girls will have memory books when they are older. I could almost write a book :).

Please don't EVER discontinue campfire doughnut night - the best ever!!!!

We loved the remodel on our cabin (11), great job!! See you next year

Dear Brian and Heather:  On behalf of the Fitzgerald Family, thank you for making our stay so very enjoyable, even in the face of some unexpected business challenges I had to take care of.  You two are such gracious hosts. 

We appreciated the clean and modern cabins.  The kitchen was spacious, had plenty of refrigerator space, and the utensils and pots where such we could make just about anything. 

Some of the activities we enjoyed were the fresh doughnuts made over the campfire, rocket making, and jewelry making.  It was great bonding time with our children.  Some of the activities allowed Sandy and I some alone time as well. 

I think a vacation is about enjoying your loved ones, resting, taking in God's wonderful creation, indulging in good food, and having fun.  Thanks for helping us fulfill this.

Sincerely, Scott Fitzgerald

 

Brian and Heather,

Thank you for checking on our stay. We had a great time. Fishtrap is such a pretty lake and it was great for me to spend some time on the lake after being away for many years.

The kids had a great time playing in the water and we all appreciated the separation of the floating toys for the older swimmers from the shallow beach area for the little kids.

We all appreciated the great things you have done with the Resort:                          

  • Everything (pretty much) in good repair
  • Plenty of vehicle and trailer parking
  • Well stocked lodge store with interesting novelty items
  • ICE CREAM
  • Available boats 
  • Friendly owners and staff
  • Decent grills for each cabin. Even though ours needed cleaning when we arrived, we noticed that it was being cleaned, both ash and grate on the day we were leaving.
