Please join us for excellent fishing, fun in the sun, water skiing, our Wednesday pot luck dinner and bonfires. The fall brings an aboundance of grouse, duck, bear and deer hunters to the Squaw Lake area. Round lake has a good resident population of ducks and geese and gets good shooting when the northern ducks start coming down. We are available for lodging thru deer season.

Every fall people travel to the Squaw Lake area for the hunting that it offers. You can walk the many trails and logging roads or use your GPS to take off thru the woods to bring back some grouse. If ducks are your pleasure, Round lake and the surrounding area provide good duck hunting up until freeze-up. For many hunters, September signals the beginning of Bear hunting of bow hunting for deer. Emery can point you to some of the best spots to make your hunt successful. We are open to hunters thru Deer Season in November.
For the golfers you can go to Blackduck Golf Course in Black Duck or Blueberry Hills Golf Course in Deer River and four golf courses in Bemidji.

If you are interested in a little sightseeing while at Wausota Resort we invite you to explore the Chippewa National Forest. The Cutfoot Sioux ranger station and visitor center is located on State Highway 46 just 10 minutes from Wausota Resort, near Cutfoot Sioux Lake and Lake Winnibigoshish north of Deer River, Minnesota.

Experience the forest of old at the Chippewa National Forest's "Lost Forty." The original Government Land Survey in 1882 described the land of the Lost Forty as part of Coddington Lake. This mapping error caused the virgin pine of the area to be left behind by loggers at the turn of the century. The Lost Forty is actually 144 acres. A one-mile self-guided trail winds its way through the majestic pines of the Lost Forty. Click here for a .pdf document with more information about the Lost Forty
