Activities at Norway Beach Resort are endless with our National Forest setting. Most guests take advantage of the free Forest Service lectures at the Norway Beach Visitor Center – a rare opportunity to hear about the forest and its inhabitants from the professionals who manage the Chippewa National Forest. Do you know the difference between an eagle and an osprey? A National Forest and a National Park? Well here’s the chance to find out!
The area is dotted with 250-year-old virgin Norway pines and we have excellent hiking for young and old alike. The Forest Service maintains interpretive hiking trails that start just steps from the resort. Don’t miss this opportunity to explore the sights and sounds of the deep woods.
But if you would rather ride than walk, bring your bike for a crisp evening or early morning ride. The Norway Beach road system is blacktop and entry to the Migizi Trail is right at our back door!
Canoeing is great at Norway Beach Resort. And why wouldn’t it be? With the headwaters of the Mississippi flowing both into and out of Cass Lake we have easy access to some of the best canoeing for both the experienced and the amateur adventurer. You provide the ambition, we provide the canoes, paddles, and life vests at no cost.
A variety of outdoor activities are provided, including basketball, volleyball, horseshoes and shuffleboard. Canoes, hydro-bikes and a variety of other watersport equipment is also available to guests at no charge.
Other activities include golf at three area courses. The Cass Lake Logging Museum and Information Center is well worth a visit. Our area is rich in American heritage from lumberjacks to fur trappers, and more. A stop at the Chippewa National Forest Headquarters Building in Cass Lake is a must. It is one of the most unique log buildings anywhere and is even listed on the National Register of Historic Sites.
The Cass Lake Palace Casino is literally minutes from the resort and offers Las Vegas style casino with a friendly northwoods atmosphere.
Itasca State Park, the headwaters of the Mississippi, is less than an hour away.
We are less than a half-hour from both Walker and Bemidji with their many fine shops and restaurants.
