Bikes for the Paul Bunyan Trail

Bike rentals are free at Nature Link! Enjoy one of our Retrospec bikes and take it for a cruise on the Paul Bunyan Trail which is located right at the entrance of the resort! Cruise on the trail and explore for miles - or take it 2 miles northwest where you will find Downtown Nisswa where there are great restaurants, shopping, and more! We will provide a bike lock with your rental if you want to take it to town and explore on foot from there.

Private Beach with Docks

Here at Nature Link, we have our own beach for you to enjoy! Complete with a nice swimming area, and docks that you can sunbathe on, or fish off of!

Kayaks

Kayaks are available to rent right for free here at our property. You are able to launch these right from our private beach, or one of our several docks available to guests. Explore the beauty of Clark Lake, and our private island!

Fire Pits

Scattered across the property you will find several firepits that are available for guest use. Grab some wood from our front desk manager to start a fire and grab a free s'mores kit!

Walking Trails - Coming Summer of 2022

We are currently routing where our walking trails will go so you can explore more of our property! Coming in summer of 2022, these trails will help you step outside your front door and immerse yourself in nature.
