So many things to do at Oak Haven!  During the summer, Oak Haven Resort offers free family activities, two heated swimming pools (indoor and outdoor) and free use of canoes and pedal boats to our registered guests. Note – Cabin # 11 is open year round and cabins # 1 thru # 10 are all open from May 12 until September 29, 2018.




Sunday mornings at 9 AM during the summer (2018 – June 9 to August 18), we offer free fresh baked donuts to our registered guests, served at the lodge while supplies last.  Meet the owners Debbie and Mike Trachta and some other guests.


During the summer (2018 – June 9 to August 18) we’ll be entertaining kids at the lodge with free pizza and beverages from 6:00 PM until 7:00 PM. This fun event is offered to weekly (Saturday to Saturday) cabin guests during the summer period.


Oak Haven is famous for Kids Turtle Races! Kids are invited to enter the Free turtle races! Every kid who enters wins free gift coupons good for something at the lodge. We ask everyone to meet at the waterside pavilion by 7 PM on Tuesday’s during the ten week summer period. (2018 – June 9 to August 18)  Great family fun….lots of laughs and excitement!


Every Wednesday morning during the ten week summer period, (2018 – June 9 to August 18) Debbie and Mike lock up the lodge and take kids on our 25′ pontoon boat for a couple of hours of fishing!  Kids learn the basics of fishing and the importance of “catch and release.”  We meet at the waterside pavilion at 9:45 AM. We talk about safety and then we board the pontoon at 10 AM. Kids staying here at Oak Haven are invited to join Debbie and Mike for a couple hours. Kids are asked to bring their own fishing rod and reel. Be sure they have good fishing line on their reel. It’s best that they have their own life jackets too. Bring your kids to Oak Haven and let us take them fishing! We take lots of pictures. Kids leave here better informed about fishing. Want to see your kids smile? Bring them to Oak Haven. Thank You.


Spring, summer and fall we have fishing boats available to rent. (We try to rent our boats weekly with our cabins. We sometimes rent boats daily if they are available when you arrive.) Each of our fishing boats is equipped with Mercury outboard motor with electric start, a depth/fish finder (graph), live well, bilge pump, anchor and more. Remember, you have nine lakes to choose from when you stay at Oak Haven. This nine lake chain offers so much. Enjoy planning your fishing adventures!  Each day, the wind and the weather may determine whether you want to go after Walleye….or Largemouth Bass….if it’s windy, maybe go casting or trolling for Muskie and Northern Pike. Enjoy bobber fishing for Crappies, Bluegills and Perch. And when you toss out your bobber, you can sit back and say…”OK world….don’t bobber me!”   🙂

During the summer months we have two nice heated swimming pools.
2018 – Outdoor pool closes for the season at 8 PM on Sunday, August 26.
2018 – Indoor pool closes for the season at 7 PM on Momday, Sept. 3 (Labor Day)
Be sure to check our Welcome Book when you arrive (in every cabin) to view the daily pool hours.

Free use of pedal boats, sit on top kayaks and canoes (available thru Labor Day), a beach that is great for making sand castles, basketball, ping pong (table tennis) volleyball, badminton, tether ball, horseshoes, Bocce Ball, Foosball, board games, puzzles, books and much more…all free for our registered guests to enjoy. We have two sandboxes and a fun Rainbow Clubhouse Playground.

Many guests enjoy catching Bass, Pike, Bluegills and Perch off our docks. We offer quality Weber charcoal grills at every cabin to complete your camping experience. We have a fire pit by the water, plus there are fire pits at Cabins # 4, # 9, # 10 and # 11.

Get involved with our Annual Fishing Contest! No cost to enter, bragging rights to win. See several years of our fishing contest results in our Welcome Book, which is in every cabin and in the lodge. We suggest you “keep your bait or lure in the water.”  There are some really, really big fish here!  (Over 50 inches long! A 52 inch Muskie was landed by an Oak Haven guest in 2018!) When boating the Cass Lake chain of nine lakes, we encourage you to troll in the connecting river channels, where law requires boats to travel at “no wake” speed to protect the many nesting birds (loons, ducks, more) in this wonderful area.

Please visit our gift shop where you’ll find stuffed animals, toys, a light assortment of fishing tackle, plus a variety of jackets, sweatshirts, t-shirts and hats. We try to offer new styles of Oak Haven embroidered hats every year. In the lodge you’ll find our heated indoor swimming pool, arcade games, great hand scooped ice cream and more. The lodge is the place to order our excellent Heggie’s pizza’s!
