There are quite a few recreational activities for families, businessmen, and women on and around Roy Lake.

Including fishing, hunting, going to the beach, frisbee golf, snowmobiling, and much more!

If the weather does not cooperate then there are cards and other inside games to play. There is also a TV provided in our cabins and condo cabins.


The glacial lakes, including Roy Lake, remain a favorite with fisherman who enjoy fishing or for families wanting to experience fishing. Roy Lake contains all types of fish including walleyes, crappie, bluegill, perch, small mouth bass, large mouth bass, and northern pike. Sit off one of our docks or rent a boat or go with our guide for a great individual or family fishing experience on any of the glacial lakes in the area that happen to have fish biting!
