In the Brainerd Lakes, MN area, there is so much to do that you won’t be able to fit it all in in only one week’s time. Here is a list of some of the many activities available in the area. For more in depth listings, visit the Nisswa Chamber of Commerce site for an exhaustive list of ideas.

The lakes in the area are most enjoyed with watercraft of different kinds. We currently have a 14′ rowboat that is available to use and comes with the house rental. If you won’t be bringing your own boat(s), we recommend visiting Dave’s Sportland Rentals which is right off of HWY 371 on CountyRoad 13 less than 5 minutes from our house for all your rental needs. Whether it’s fishing boats, pontoons, jet skis and all the fishing equipment and fishing licenses, check out Dave’s Sportland.
