Outdoor activities are abundant near our secluded property at Eagle Ridge Lodge. Found on the outskirts of Mora, Minnesota our locale provides for many recreational activities – both directly on our property and within close proximity.
Camp under the stars; work off your meal with a little cross-country skiing; canoe or kayak down gentle streams; hunt for your choice of game; catch your share of rock bass; or simply go for a nature walk. Do all that and more right on our property.
At Eagle Ridge Lodge we maintain miles and miles of personally-cleared nature trails through our 160 acres of property – most of which is naturally wooded. These wide trails provide for wonderful hiking, snowmobiling, skiing, and 4-wheeling excursions. Our 160 acres includes 55 acres of dedicated tillable farm land, providing for optimal bird and deer hunting in the fall. Walk 50 feet from the front door and find yourself at a gently flowing river, perfect for canoeing and fishing.
If you’re staying with us the second Sunday of February, witness the famous Vasaloppet cross-country ski race in-person without leaving the comforts of Eagle Ridge Lodge. This 52-kilometer trek ends in downtown Mora and has the skiers whisking right through the front of our property toward the finish line.
Attractions Beyond Our Property
Exploring beyond our Eagle Ridge property, you’ll find some of the best fishing lakes that Minnesota has to offer. The surrounding area is home to such notable lakes as Knife Lake, Devils Lake, Fish Lake, Mille Lacs Lake, and many more. Kanabec County itself – where Mora is located – is home to over 70 lakes, so many that some don’t even have names. Whether you enjoy warm-weather fishing in the summer or ice fishing in the winter, Eagle Ridge Lodge is the perfect place to start your next fishing vacation.
Mora also features a great number of trials for biking, walking, skiing, and snowmobiling. Check out trail maps to find the best outing for you.
