About Us

Flag Island Resort is a premier full service family owned and operated hunting and fishing resort on Lake of the Woods open year round; one of the largest freshwater lakes in the world. Walleye, Northern, Crappie and Bass await in abundance. From our location you have easy access to both Minnesota and Canadian waters, all 65,000 miles of shoreline. From June through October Musky is a popular trophy; the variety is sure to test your angling skills.

One of the many highlights of your vacation stay with us will be your noon shore lunch. Prepared expertly by your fishing guide, the shore lunch features fish from the morning’s catch as well as fried potatoes and beans all prepared over an open fire. After your fishing excursion, don’t worry about all of the fish you caught. Your guide will clean and package your fish for you while you rest and relax. In fact, it will be delivered right to your cabin. In the wintertime we offer permanent heated ice house rentals with heated transportation on both the MN and the Ontario side, where you will surely catch your limit of monster crappies.

Flag Island Resort offers seventeen comfortable cabins, two of which are duplexes with the option of being conjoined along with many other amenities. We offer standard lodging plans as well as the American Plan, which includes all of your meals.

In our historic lodge you will find a full service restaurant and bar. The restaurant is open from 7 am until 9 pm and 9:30 pm on weekends to guests and the public. In the bar you can order appetizers and fresh homemade pizzas until bar close, last call is at midnight although; if we are not busy we may close sooner. You will also find a Tackle shop where you can purchase hot jigs, tackle, tools, toiletries you may have forgotten, apparel and etc..

You will come as a guest and leave as a friend and we would love to have you visit soon!

Flag Island Resort changed ownership January 2016 to Chuck and Andrea Haggenmiller; below is a quick note from them!

We would like to introduce ourselves, Chuck and Andrea Haggenmiller, owners and management of Flag Island Resort. The resort business has always been a dream of ours and as of January 2016 our dream became a reality!

Before the resort life we co-owned a lumber yard in Arlington, MN with Chuck’s brother. When we decided to make the career change our oldest son, Spencer took over shares in the family business.

Our goal is to put fish in your boat (or bucket) and a smile on your face and we would love to have you in camp! Feel free to call or email us anytime!

Best Wishes,

Chuck and Andrea

Mick and Sherry Messelt became co-owners in August of 2018. Here is a little note from them.

“Mick and I have enjoyed spending weekends at the lake for 25+ years and have talked jokingly about owning a resort someday. We started coming up to ‘The Angle’ a few years prior and fell in love with the area and the people. It became harder and harder to leave on Sunday nights. This dream became a reality when Chuck and Andrea asked us to become partners. After a lot of soul-searching conversations, we decided to go for it. We both had successful jobs (I am a nurse and Mick is an electrician) that we left (and some wonderful people); but it has been a great adventure so far. We would like to thank our families and friends for their support in our new venture, especially our two daughters, Mackenzie and Leah.”

Our goal is to meet as strangers but leave as family!
