Do Rent

Don’t own a sled? Rent one! If you’re looking for a weekend adventure, McQuoid’s Inn offers weekend rentals and guided sled tours of Lake Mille Lacs for both beginners and experienced riders. For day trippers, or those looking for a quick way to explore far-off ice fishing spots, Randy’s Rentals offers full and half-day snowmobile rentals.

Do Fish

Ice fishing is one of the most popular winter activities on the big lake. Rent a deluxe fish house or spear house with all the comforts of home—heaters, beds, even TVs. Don’t want to be tethered to one spot? There are portable options, too.

Do Catch

It’s a big lake. If you’re not sure where to start, start with a winter guide service suitable for ice fishing newbies or experienced anglers. Your guide provides the equipment and finds the fish, all you have to do is catch ’em.

Do Stay

When you’re ready to warm up and call it a day, the area’s hotels, motels, and resorts provide an opportunity to kick back next to a roaring fire, soak in a steaming hot tub, or rest up for the next day’s adventures. Lake Mille Lacs lodging options can fit your budget and your preference.

 Do Eat

Feast on traditional Minnesota fare, favorite regional dishes, or standard cuisine at a multitude of dining establishments. From small town cafes and local taverns, to all-you-can-eat buffets and family restaurants, you’re guaranteed to find an eatery serving up the foods you enjoy.
