Ruttger's offers a host of summer activities including fishing, swimming, sailing, water-skiing, canoeing, kayaking, and much more. In the summer months the resort also offers a complimentary supervised children's recreation program. Children love the supervised hiking, bonfires, treasure hunts, and other planned events, most provided at no additional charge. Resort guests are also welcome to use the resort's basketball court, canoes, and kayaks FREE of charge. So ENJOY!
In the Fall and Winter seasons, some of the resort facilities close. The resort dining room and lounge are closed. Ruttger's does keep several motel rooms, some town-home style units, and cabins or Villas open during the colder months. The indoor pool, exercise rooms, sauna, and whirlpool are open all year long offering you and the kids a great Northern Minnesota winter family vacation spot. In the fall, guests enjoy the beautiful Autumn colors in the woods surrounding the resort and Bemidji area. Hunters enjoy the abundant game population that our north-woods location provides. The deer, duck, and grouse hunting in the Bemidji area is hard to beat.
