Island View Resort Activities
Obviously the first thing you’ll do after dropping your bags in your cabin is head down to the water. Pelican Lake offers fantastic fishing for smallmouth and largemouth bass to northern pike, walleye, bluegills and more. You can dock your own boat, rent one of ours or fish off the dock with the kids!
We also have paddleboards, canoes and paddle boats for you to take out and enjoy the water – a great way to clear your head! Be sure to check out our swimming beach as well; while you take a dip, the kids will love building sandcastles on our shallow, sandy swimming beach and racing out to the swim raft.
Afterward, stop by the fire pit for a weenie roast!
Don’t miss our amazing playground, Fort Wilderness! Let your kids’ imaginations run wild as they explore the clubhouse, hit up the slides, check out lookouts and have an all out blast! Located conveniently near the docks and beach.
Spend part of the day dry on land! We have lots of different activities for you, from traditional sports like basketball and sand volleyball to horseshoes, cornhole, tetherball, bocce ball and croquet. There are also all the classic activities you remember from growing up, like kick-the-can, scavenger hunts, bug hunting, crawfish catching, hide-n-seek, rock painting and even water balloons!
Don’t forget to head out for a hike on one of the nearby trails, or if you’re really adventurous, we’re within the Kabetogama State Forest and on the edge of the Superior National Forest, both of which offer a number of great hikes!
The Main Lodge
And at our main lodge, be sure to stop by for game night! We occasionally host family game nights for you and our other guests to join in and compete, like our very popular Minute To Win It night where we create a number of challenges for your family members to complete!
We also offer a ping pong table, mini-arcade and billiard table for the pool sharks among your family, and there are always board games, cards, puzzles and a collection of books available to borrow. There is also cable TV and a movie collection, along with a small gift shop and pizza, candy and ice cream available for those with the munchies.
Stop by the Pelican Lake Coffee Shop in the main lodge for a fresh cup of coffee.
If you’re looking to get out and explore the area during your stay at Island View Resort, we have a number of attractions close to Orr, from national parks and underground mine tours to black bear sanctuaries and the hockey hall of fame, along with more than a few local eateries to please everyone in the family!
