Things to do at Nature Link

Paul Bunyan Trail (+ Nature Link Walking Trails Coming Soon)

Explore the Paul Bunyan trail system which crosses our driveway and has an extensive 115 mile trail system running all the way from Baxter to Bemidji! We are currently routing where we will add our own private walking trails within the Nature Link forest so you can explore more of our property in the coming years and immerse yourself in nature.

Bikes for the Paul Bunyan Trail

Bikes are free to use 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 also 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 + Paddle Boards + Canoe

Kayaks, paddle boards, and a canoe are available to use for free here at our property. You can 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!

Beach Fire Pits

We have 2 fire pits on the beach available for guest use. There's wood provided to start a fire and we will also provide free s'mores kits at check in!

Winter Activities

We have snowshoes that are free to use, you can ice fish on Clark Lake, and the Paul Bunyan trail is open for snowmobiles to use in the winter!


Nisswa is a wonderful tourist destination for people of all ages! Go shopping downtown, or enjoy one of the many RESTAURANTS, golf courses, trails, and more!
