Minnesota Outdoor Education and Recreation

 

You sense it the moment you start down our 2-1/2 mile driveway. You have arrived at the region’s finest full service environmental education/outdoor recreation center. Here before you lies Minnesota’s largest outdoor classroom. Nearly ten square miles of rolling hills, pristine lakes and dense forests await your exploration. It’s a quiet land of sandy glacial hills, where the majestic red pine grows and Orion shines with unparalleled clarity. At the end of the drive, nestled between a glacial ridge and Big Deep lake, is your home away from home — the 54,000 square foot cedar and fieldstone Resource Heritage Center Lodge. Our friendly staff and home cooked meals make your stay an extraordinary experience.
