Northern Minnesota resorts are a great place to do nothing, which can be very appealing. It’s your vacation and your schedule. No responsibilities.
At Two Inlets Resort you will enjoy quiet mornings and peaceful evenings. Bring a good book and enjoy being unproductive. It’s easy to relax since our lake cabins are spaced for privacy and arranged to take advantage of cool lake breezes.
Itasca State Park
Two Inlets Resort offers lodging near Itasca State Park. Just north of Park Rapids, Minnesota, it’s the most visited state park in Minnesota and is right in our back yard! Most people who stay at Two Inlets Resort spend at least a day or two at the park while they are on vacation.
Itasca State Park is home to the headwaters of the Mississippi River, Aiton Heights Fire Tower (one of the few towers open to the public), Minnesota’s Record Red Pine, a variety of naturalist programs and historical buildings. Hiking, biking, fishing and boating are very popular recreational activities within Itasca State Park. For your convenience, Itasca Sports rents bikes for you to use on the many paved bike trails that the park has to offer. If you’d rather go hiking, there are over 30 miles of trails within Itasca State Park’s unique old growth pine ecosystem. Coborn’s Lake Itasca Tours offers naturalist narrated boat tours to the Mississippi River Headwaters.
