Previous owner, Tom Briggs,  is back at the helm of Wigwam Resort! He’ll be running things for the foreseeable future, and he would love to see all of his old guests for our 100th anniversary!! 

Since 1917,  Wigwam Resort has offered fishermen and families easy access to year round hunting and fishing opportunities unlike anywhere else in the country. Whether you are a fisherman pursuing world class Walleye, Sauger, and Sturgeon or a hunter after deer, bear or geese, you can find these and more in abundance in Northern Minnesota. Head out hunting or fishing on your own or go straight to the game with one of our professional guides who know exactly how to get you in the hunt.

This outdoor playground has plenty of activities to keep the entire family entertained such as snowmobile trails, hiking, canoeing and local events happening frequently throughout the year. No matter the season, our family friendly cabins and full-service lodge will make yours a comfortable and exciting vacation packed with thrilling experiences.

Through our website we offer a variety of tools to help you plan your vacation, check fishing reports or if you’d like to send an email or give us a call our friendly staff will go the extra distance to make sure you have everything you need to prepare for your exciting adventure vacation.
