The summer season is the bright spot at the end of a long Minnesota winter. This past summer season, Gull Lake was full of locals and travelers alike enjoying everything the beautiful lake has to offer. With the warm weather of summer just a few months away, optimistic vacationers look past wintertime and look forward to the next opportunity to take to the lake, explore Brainerd and Nisswa, and enjoy the great outdoors.

It’s the time of year where the best meals are served right off the grill and desserts always include chocolate, marshmallows, and graham crackers. It’s when people travel from everywhere to see what a Minnesota summer is all about. It’s when the day lasts long enough to enjoy the sunset after dinner, and there’s still enough time to get one last dip in at Gull Lake. Best of all, it’s the time that families can get away from life long enough to enjoy everything the beautiful outdoors has to offer.

As you daydream of warmer days, keep these special dates in mind. Here at Gull Lake Beach Resorts, we are already booking for these 2022 vacation dates!


Memorial Day weekend is the official kickoff to the summer season in Minnesota. Gull Lake Beach Resorts’ guests are firing up the grills, starting up the pontoons, and enjoying the first of many trips that will be spent on the lake. We offer pontoon and fishing boat rentals, which are perfect for anyone looking for a little time off-grid. We invite all our guests to bring along their own boat as we offer boat lifts, great for breaking your boat out after a long winter!


Is there a better way to celebrate the conclusion of another school year than with a trip to Gull Lake? As a kid, there are few things better than knowing you are on your way to the lake and starting summer off right! Gull Lake Beach Resorts is a family resort, where we have playgrounds onsite and board games provided in each unit, ready for kids to get their play on. Not to mention the lily pad and water tubes ready to reserve on a first-come, first-served basis!


The best way to celebrate America’s favorite holiday in Minnesota is on the lake, with a week of family fun and memories that are sure to last a lifetime. In the Nisswa area, you can choose from dozens of summer activities including golfing, fishing, or boating. Then, end the fun-filled day by heading back to Gull Lake Beach Resorts and putting some food on the grill or grabbing a bite to eat at Ernie’s On Gull.

As you may have guessed, this time is extremely popular at Gull Lake Beach Resorts and availability is limited. There is still plenty of sun and fun to go around on the dates surrounding the Fourth of July but be sure to make these plans sooner rather than later!


Labor Day weekend is the perfect chance to head to Gull Lake for a late-season family vacation to soak up the last warm days of the season. Whether you gather the girls for a girls’ trip on Gull Lake or round up the family to enjoy one last lakeside getaway, there’s no better way to spend a weekend of no work and all play.

Here at Gull Lake Beach Resorts, we’re excited about what the 2022 Summer season has to offer!
