|Campfire Bay Resort is a great place to
get-away, relax, and reconnect with family, friends, or even
yourself! But don't take our word for it....
Brian & Family,
Our family would
like to thank you once again for making our
week at the cabin a very fun and memorable one.
This was our 8th year at your
resort and every year we enjoy the great host
and hostess, the many friends we have made over
the years and the many activities provided
during the week as well as a clean and
The ice cream social is great as
well as the pontoon ride for the ladies and the
fishing contest for the young children.
Our grandchildren especially enjoyed the rocket
building, the tie-dye t-shirts, the jewelry
making, woodworking and the yummy campfire
donuts Brian makes each year!
Thank you again for a wonderful
week and we are already looking forward to next

Heather & Brian--
Thank you for a
wonderful vacation at Campfire Bay Resort.
The kids (Hannah and Preston) had another
excellent vacation at your resort. They talk
about it almost every day and already want to
start to count down until we go again. They
really wanted to color you a picture and say
"thanks" for the fun time they had again.
So thanks again,
and Preston Lewis
We had a great
weekend! The cabin is really nice & we
love the interior decorating. The
scrapbooking tools were wonderful and we learned
how to make all kinds of shapes to embellish our
pages. We'll spread the word and we'll be

Dear Brian and Heather: On behalf of the
Fitzgerald Family, thank you for making our stay
so very enjoyable, even in the face of some
unexpected business challenges I had to take care
of. You two are such gracious hosts.
We appreciated the clean and modern cabins.
The kitchen was spacious, had plenty of
refrigerator space, and the utensils and pots
where such we could make just about anything.
Some of the activities we enjoyed were the
fresh doughnuts made over the campfire, rocket
making, and jewelry making. It was great
bonding time with our children. Some of the
activities allowed Sandy and I some alone time as
I think a vacation is about enjoying your loved
ones, resting, taking in God's wonderful creation,
indulging in good food, and having fun.
Thanks for helping us fulfill this.
We had a perfect
trip. Nina loved playing with Iain. When we come
again we will have to make sure he is in town!
Nina really enjoyed all of the activities and
being able to freely come and go in the resort
with her bike. My sister and I liked the quiet
time and the views from the swing. She
said yesterday she wished she was still at the
resort on the swing looking out over the water.
Your family does a brilliant job with the resort
and we will look forward to seeing whatever is
new or different next time we visit.
Oh and Jan and I really enjoyed the pontoon
ride. It was very special to see the lake with
you. The cookies, the campfire donuts, and ice
cream social around the camp fire was very nice,
and helped us to get to know our neighbors so
the kids could play.
A perfect vacation. Thank you so much. Hope you
have a great fall season. Tell Iain Nina says
Your resort was GREAT!! We had
an awesome, relaxing time and you were such
wonderful hosts the donuts, the pontoon ride
everything just made our stay
more memorable and we look forward to coming
back next fall.

for me to spend some time on the lake after
being away for many years.

We had a great
time, thought it was one of our best vacations
ever and would like to return next year, Lord
willing. We all liked the crafts everyday, the
rockets were a highlight. The accomodations were
very good. I (Kirby) really liked the golf
course as well. We're not sure what could be
changed, just keep doing what you do. We really
liked being with your family in the evenings
around the fire. Maybe an "ice-breaker" at the
fire would help the "newer" people to become
acquainted with the rest of the guests. I hope
you all have a great rest of the summer. -Kirby

all loved it. My wife and I like to boat and
play around Brainerd. The kids like the
activities and playing on the lake. We all stay
as busy as we WANT to be. I'm not sure I'd want
anything changed. :)

Hi Heather & Brian,
Thank you for your hospitality while we were
there - you were both kind and
helpful. We had a wonderful time playing at the
resort and seeing all our
family ... yes definitely some great memories.
We especially liked the
water toys and the games room. We had never seen
the game 'carpet ball'
before but it soon became one of our favorites
because it was suitable for
all ages, abilities and fitness levels.
We enjoyed the cabins they were clean, the beds
were comfortable, and the
showers had good water pressure.
We wish your family and the resort, all the best
for the future!
We had a lot of
fun; my favorite was watching Izabela try out
the water equipment for the first time. Fishing
was great too; we had fish for dinner every
night. And we really enjoyed working together on
all kinds of fun projects that Heather organized
for us. Having a latte every day was definitely
a bonus! And the fire, and the doughnuts, etc,
Thank you for your hospitality and all the
We are looking forward to our next vacation
at Campfire Bay Resort.

I grew up
going to a resort when I was young and I want the
same for my girls and we hit the jackpot when we
found your resort. I couldn't ask for much more of
an experience for them than you offer, so thank you
memories being made....we will never forget our time
spent at Campfire Bay Resort! The past three years
have always been eventful for us (both good and
bad), but for sure we will never forget it and we
can't wait to come back. It's all the girls talk
about for a year is going back to the cabin. I have
decided to keep a journal of our times there along
with pictures so the girls will have memory books
when they are older. I could almost write a book :).
EVER discontinue campfire doughnut night - the best
We loved the
remodel on our cabin (11), great job!! See you next

For the past 25 years, we have vacationed in a
variety of resorts but for the past 6 years we have
returned to Campfire Bay Resort and we have found
our summer home. Brian & Heather welcome you
and it seems like you’re at your resort. What
a peaceful feeling, hearing the waves lap on the
shore, hearing the loons call and seeing other
wildlife even including eagles flying overhead.
Of course, there’s the great fishing. Big
crappies abound throughout the summer but especially
in May & June. We’ve caught good size
walleyes, bass & sunfish too. Fish Trap Lake
has many bays and so offers opportunities to fish no
matter what the weather. The cabins are close
to the water for swimming or relaxing on a float.
You can do absolutely nothing but read all day long
or participate in a variety of activities.
Water sports; hydro-bikes, paddleboat, canoes,
kayaks, dock fishing or creative projects, jewelry
making or wood projects are all available.
These are the reasons we continue to return year
Linda & Dennis Johnson, Waconia MN
Thank you for our fabulous (too
short!) stay at your adorable resort. We all
wished that we had booked a few more nights and
yours will be the resort that we will return to in
the future. I believe we stayed in cabin 6
(?) with another family and thought the cabin was
very well appointed and had everything we needed.
We loved the family
atmosphere as we both have young children and your
personal family involvement was refreshing.
Its apparent that you love what you are doing!
Thanks for a great long
weekend! Next time it will be longer.
and card making just make those chilly fall, winter,
and spring days pass quicker!
To the Sams,
The Luebke Clan
would like to express our sincere thanks and
appreciation for all your courteous and friendly
acts of kindness you showed to us during our 3 day
The cabin was
great, the beach wonderful, the pontoon fun, and the
fishing great (and delicious)!

Brian, Heather & boys-
We all enjoyed ourselves
very much. Joey liked the rockets, Jasmine had
so much fun. It was the first time we were in
a kayak-also a canoe. We loved the campfires
and all of your hospitality.
Bruce and Diane Reed
We had a blast, and of course you
will see us probably sooner then later! I got over
30 pages done! I am really excited about that!!!
Thanks for making a great place for people to come
and enjoy some relaxation.
We took some walks, peeked in the
cabin up on the hill that Brian was telling us about
... That is just darling! I suppose that is not
I hope business continues to be
good for you guys so we can keep coming there until
we are old and feeble! LOL...
The Sams Gang
thank you for letting us be your guests at your
great resort. The Pine Beach "cabin" is great! All
kinds of room to spread out and we really enjoyed
the art work, especially the Campfire Bay "posters".
I don't think we have ever been in a resort kitchen
that was so well equipped, almost had trouble
finding space for groceries. You have obviously gone
to the trouble of adding so many little extras that
we felt comfortable right away. If Brian could only
drop a couple of trees in the lake; I usually fish
crappies in wood and didn't find much wood other
than docks. We were catching more fish each day as
we learned from the lake and I'll bring some
different tackle next time to better match the type
of fishing. The bass are really chunks and we caught
some nice ones; I like to look them over, give them
a kiss, and then release them. . . . ok, maybe not
the kiss part.
For sure my friends will be hear what a neat
resort Campfire Bay is; it will come highly
John and Karen Eastland
change anything! You have a wonderful family resort
and we loved it!
The Schiffers hope to be back in a couple of years!!
Cheers, Gail Schiffer
so much!! We had the BEST time ever at the resort!!!
It was a wonderful place to stay w/so much to
enjoy!! Thank you all for you generosity!!!
Jack had an AWESOME time, but I know he would've
loved having some toys/tools to play with in the
water. Maybe people bring these items w/them, but we
were pretty limited on space since we flew.
We will definitely be coming back at some point
in the future - we LOVED it!!!!!!!!!!! My parents
and my brother's family also really enjoyed it and
I'm sure will be back w/o us in the future!! It was
a pleasure to stay there and get to know you both a
Again, thanks so much for your hospitality!! It
was GREATLY appreciated!!
WE MISS IT ALREADY THANKS FOR A
GREAT TIME MARTY AND CAROL
WE HAD SUCH A GREAT
TIME. WE COULDN'T HAVE BETTER HOSTS AND SO
APPRECIATE WHAT A BEAUTIFUL RESORT YOU HAVE. I WILL
BE COMING BACK NEXT YEAR AND WILL NOTIFY YOU SOON,
BUT AM TRYING TO FIND OUT HOW MANY MORE PEOPLE WILL
BE COMING. WILL TALK TO YOU SOON.
We had an excellent week once again!
We love coming to Campfire Bay- it is a highlight of
our year! You seem to have everything we could
possibly need! We loved the paddleboards!!!
again for being such wonderful hosts- you guys are
the best. My grandma (85 yrs old) was just in awe
about how nice your place was! We will be back next
year. Have a great year!

Heather and boys,
We had a great time at your resort even if we
didn't have all sunny days! Thank you for all you do
and all you did to make our stay the best ever! We
are already planning for next year! I love the
morning classes and plan to take part during our
next visit. Having a room in our cabin to set up for
scrapbooking only was great! Thanks again for making
us feel like family!
