Vacationing in Nisswa
I think over the last 10 years we have stayed at every resort or motel in the Nisswa area. Our favorite by far is Lost Lake Lodge.
It features great activities for Kids and families and the food at Lost Lake is superb.
In fact we originally discovered the lodge when some friends invited us over there for dinner. We liked it so much that we booked a vacation stay.
The town of nisswa has about 100 shops that are great to poke around in. Everything from mocassins to designer clothes can be found. We like the Wobbly Moose store for nik nacks and the Song of The North is neat too. Nisswa boasts lots of places to snack or feast. Our family tradition is to have lunch at the A&W and eat outside on the picnic tables. There is also Pizza at Raffertys and More expensive fare at Nisswa Grille or there are 2 coffee shops on the main street for a quick lunch or breakfast.

I have to say, I preferred hanging out in my cabin with my "girls" talking about traveling than going out with everyone else and drinking. As a matter of fact, we only went out three times all summer, unlike my roommate who went out every single night. Still, we managed to find ways to entertain ourselves. Hopefully, you will enjoy some of the pictures.
For international day Ally (from South Korea) and I made German spaetzle from scratch. Neither one of us cook much and I had never made the dish before. The people seemed to like it though. One counselor said it was the best food there. We were shocked.
Okay, so Gabby wasn't really randomly walking around with a couple of rifles-she was transporting them to the rifle range before the kids got there. But I love this picture.
It wasn't always fun and games and most of us got incredibly homesick and wanted to leave. Everyday it was one of us. But we all stuck it through.
Every week Mom would send us all a package. One week she sent all of us enough arts and craft supplies to make our own covered photo albums so we had a little party in my cabin. We had a ball.
Occasionally, when we couldn't take camp anymore we would walk the two miles (one way) into Nisswa for ice cream. We could've ridden bikes, but Ally didn't know how to ride and after one disastrous attempt to teach her we gave up and walked.
