National Forest Lodge has been a cross country skiing and snowshoeing destination resort in Northern Minnesota since the 1970s when the Flathorn/Gegoka ski trails were developed next to us.  It's a spectacular wilderness setting only half an hour from Lake Superior's North Shore.  We're closer than ski resorts up the Gunflint Trail, so you can save both time and money by spending an adventure weekend with us.

30km of single tracked classic cross country ski trails meander through 2,000 thickly forested acres of the Superior National Forest. We're located at the top of the continental divide, which means snow comes early in the season and stays late. Year after year, these trails get consistently reliable snow cover.

Our simple cozy cabins are nestled under towering red and white pines.  A perfect place to settle in after a day on the ski trails. National Forest Lodge offers a unique winter getaway of great cross country skiing, snowshoeing, hearty food, friendly hospitality, live music and much more.

The experience of skiing and snowshoeing through the "Big Pines" at National Forest Lodge resort can be found in few other places. Picture a brilliant blue sky amidst towering red and white pines blanketed in heavy snow...

No meaningful snowfall or grooming since Jan 2nd. Warmer temps and light freezing mist on Thursday Jan 14th means less than ideal conditions, but all trails have good coverage. Public trails like Flathorn/Gegoka depend on Great Minnesota Ski Pass funding to defray the cost of maintaining them. Buy yours today online and keep a variety of public trails available to all.

Weekend Vacation Rentals are filling up rapidly so make your plan to visit us soon.
