Midwest Living Review
About 10 minutes north of Hayward, this resort offers a nice swimming beach and cabins with views of Nelson Lake. Best for folks whose emphasis is boating, the resort doesn't offer some of the resort-style extras you might look for at other family getaway spots (like a pool or tennis courts). The nice on-site restaurant is worth a drive from town. The Sunset Grill, a cozy dining spot, features tables with barrel-shape chairs clustered around a two-sided central fireplace. The small outdoor eating area faces the picturesque lake and birch-studded peninsula. Good signage makes the spot easy to find from Hayward.
