ITEMS TO PACK

  • Beach towels
    We provide basic linens and towels for in-cabin use. Large groups may also want to bring their own bath towels.
  • Personal toiletries
    We provide soap, shampoo, and conditioner dispensers in the cabins. 
  • Paper products
    We provide one roll of paper towels for your stay. Any additional napkins or kleenex needs during your stay should be self-supplied. We, of course, provide toilet paper.
  • Seasonings (and food)
    We provide some kitchen basics, like salt, pepper, and oil. If you are planning to cook during your stay, please prepare accordingly. Forget something? Not to worry! We have grocery stores in the area to buy your full week's worth of food or the spare item or two that you forgot at home.
  • Food storage
    Our cabins' kitchens are fully stocked with all your cooking and eating needs — from cookware and bakeware to dishes, utensils, and even a few Pyrex/Ziplock storage containers. However, we do recommend guests bring their own storage containers to pack out any leftover food. Saran wrap, wax paper, and aluminum foil should also be brought if your cooking plans require them.
  • Charcoal and starter
    Each cabin is equipped with its own charcoal grill, but charcoal and starter are not provided.
  • Insect repellent and sunscreen
    This one is self-explanatory. Minnesota during the summer is prolific in sunshine and mosquitos. Pack accordingly!
  • First-aid supplies
    Live by the Boy Scout's motto: Always be prepared! Don't forget your medication and throw in that first-aid kit for good measure. You never know when you'll need a bandaid or pain reliever.

DON'T FORGET THOSE EXTRAS

 A list of some "nice to have's" that may make your stay more enjoyable.

  • Flashlights or lanterns
  • Portable fan
  • Bluetooth speaker (be a nice neighbor!)
  • Bikes, rollerblades
  • Golf clubs, tennis rackets
  • Yoga mat
  • Fishing gear, filet knife, bait containers (and license!)
  • Swimwear and lifejackets
    We do provide some lifejackets on property, but we cannot guarantee your size will be readily available.
  • Sunglasses
  • Books, magazines, puzzles, and games
    We do have a Little Reading Library at Woodson Cabins if you forget (or finish) your book!
  • Raingear and evening layers
    Packing layers and preparing for all weather is a Minnesota philosophy!
  • Practical footwear
    This goes with the above, but your feet need more than sandals. We recommend bringing at least one pair of athletic or full-coverage shoes for walking around the property in the evenings and partaking in any activities.
