Wonderful place. The owners are the best. Look forward to coming back each year. Great place to kick back and relax.
Megan, thank you so much for helping my wife! She got a great deer while bow hunting and was grateful to get some hand warmers from you for her hunt and ice afterwards so she could make the 5 hour trip back home.
Really enjoyed our stay at Bowstring Shores! The cabin we stayed in was wonderful. The kitchen was the most well equipped kitchen of any resort I have ever stayed at. It was even equipped with beautifully seasoned cast iron fry pans. The boat lift worked great for my boat and even in strong winds docking was no problem. It was a fantastic week and I look forward to returning to Bowstring Shores Resort.
At Bowstring Shores Resort we think of ourselves as the perfect Minnesota vacation getaway. Anglers can enjoy world-famous fishing on Bowstring Lake and the non-fishermen in the family can enjoy the multitude of great activities available!
