Park Rapids Resorts

Mantrap Lodge is truly a slice of heaven, Minnesota style, in Park Rapids, Minnesota! We are located on the northern shore of the 1,770-acre lake that we share our name with. Also known as the Little Lake of the Woods, sparsely developed Big Mantrap Lake offers 35 miles of fishable shoreline spread across scenic bays and pristine islands. It’s the perfect place to angle for muskies, pike, and other great Minnesotan game fish, or simply to explore by boat and foot for an idyllic wooded adventure around our Minnesota family resort. You’ll be joined only by deer, otters and ospreys in the feeling of being truly away from it all!
