To The North!
37508 Bluewater Road
Grand Rapids, MN 55744
Surrounded by the tall pines of the Chippewa National Forest, Bluewater visitors experience the serene beauty of the Northwoods. Our seven-acre camp is located on Bluewater Lake, just 20 minutes north of Grand Rapids, MN. The lake is largely undeveloped with an amazing 20-foot water clarity and a sandy rock bottom. Wildlife sightings of loons, deer, bald eagles and great blue heron are plentiful, and be sure to keep an eye out on hikes for wild strawberries, raspberries and blueberries. Make Bluewater your next outdoor getaway!
Groups enjoy exclusive use, including recreational equipment: board games, basketball hoop, volleyball net, sports equipment, canoes with life jackets and paddles, and access to hiking, cross-country ski, and snowmobile trails. There are also two docks for fishing. Motorized boats may be launched at the public area.
Bluewater Lake is part of the Wabana Chain of Lakes, perfect for a day of exploration, which takes you to the historic Joyce Estate. The Wabana Chain also provides excellent fishing, including lake trout, walleye, largemouth and smallmouth bass, northern pike, crappie, perch, bluegill and sunfish.
