Flag Island does it right! Awesome owners & staff. It’s the Island version of “Cheers”—everybody knows your name. Food is great & very reasonable room rates for cabins.
If you want to relax, have a guided fishing trip or bring your own boat, you need to check out Flag Island Resort!

We just returned home, having had a wonderful time fishing and Kayaking at the resort. The team went out of their way to make our stay memorable! The shore lunches are a must after a morning of fishing with the great guides.
We are looking forward to Muskie fishing next August!
We arrived as strangers and left as friends.

My wife and I couldn’t have been more pleased with our time at Flag Island Resort. The accommodations were great, but the people were what set them apart. The staff made you feel right at home and were there for anything you might need. It will definitely be an annual stop for us. Thanks again to everyone at Flag Island!

* Best resort experience I’ve ever had in one of the most beautiful settings I’ve ever seen *
We went to fish for crappies and walleyes and we had an absolute blast. However, the reason I can say I’ll be back is due to the staff and ownership that care for you and the resort. Fine details like packaging fish for transport, excellent food, knowledgeable and personable guides; all which made the experience more memorable.
Thank you for an excellent experience. I can’t wait to come back.

Showed up in a snowstorm with a truck that would not shift. Chuck had his guys open up the heated garage and took care of it while we went out fishing.
With the high-pressure system the fish were pretty finicky, but we were still able to close the deal on enough fish to keep us busy. The size of the fish was fantastic.
Randy and Marco and Vern took care of us all week on the ice and set us up to have success. Some personal bests were caught, and fun times were had by all.
The cabin was exactly how I would want my lake home built and every detail was paid attention to. Charging stations for your electronics was a nice added touch.
We had the guides clean our fish while we changed and had a beer and met down at the Lodge. We ordered all the sides and had half our fish deep fried and half baked – I would highly recommend going this route because they were both excellent.
I would very highly recommend Flag Island Resort. It may be the best Resort I’ve ever been to. Thank you for the memories! Look forward to getting back up there.
PS – Ask Randy to put you on big gills. You won’t be disappointed.

The staff and the resort are absolutely wonderful. We stayed in Longbow and we were so impressed with our stay. The dock staff catered to all our needs, and the waitstaff made every accommodation with a smile on their face. I Recommend this resort to anyone that wants 5-star service and fell like you’re at home.

Our extended family has made an annual trip to Flag Island for over 10 years. Cabin upgrades and change in management has made our experience even better. Cabins are clean and well maintained. Spacious for big groups. Staff are consistently friendly and helpful. The restaurant has decent service and is perfect for a nice hot meal. The tackle shop within is a really nice addition. Fishing itself is fantastic and it’s hard to be disappointed even on a slow year. I would highly recommend for your next fishing adventure!

Amazing! The staff there is so friendly and helpful. My father left some medication in a town 3 hours away and upon arrival I was about to head back for a total of a 6-hour trip. But after talking briefly with the owner within 5 minutes he had someone picking it up and bringing it to us! Saved me 6 hours of quality ice fishing time! They do everything in their power to make your trip more enjoyable and really care about their customers. Don’t go anywhere else but to Flag Island if you’re planning a fishing trip to Lake of Woods, I know I won’t!!!

Had a great Labor Day weekend! Caught over 300 walleyes in 3.5 days between my wife and myself plus a nice Muskie and Pike. Hats off to the dock guys. They are always there to help with anything you need! We are already planning next year’s Labor Day weekend at Flag Island. I highly recommend taking a trip there.

Huge High Fives to the Flag Island Resort crew! First day of a 5-day trip, headed out with Matt “Vern” (our guide) and he couldn’t have been any greater! (A strong suggestion if you’re looking for a guide that is great with all types of groups, flat out wonderful).

Put us on a fat 26” right away the first morning and equipped us with the knowledge for us to be confident the rest of the trip.

Since pulling up the service had been first class- from dock to lodge to cabin- and great food specials at the bar- not only great prices, but great food.

A++ to Matt “Vern” (Our Guide) – & the entire Flag Island Resort.

Spent 3 very relaxing days at Flag Isand Resort on Lake of the Woods.
Fishing was great and the hospitality shown by all the staff was amazing! The cabins were very clean and comfortable. They were equipped with everything we needed. The lodge was friendly and inviting. The food was out of this world. Excellent cook. She even made us a special request dinner that was not in the menu for that night. We will be planning a return visit in the future.

We just left Flag Island, which if we could we would have stayed longer……with that being said I wanna add the staff and owners are the greatest. We will be returning as soon as time will allow, not to mention the fishing was the best we’ve seen and would recommend anyone looking for a stay of any kind…. short or long, Flag Island would be your best choice……..thank you Chuck and Andrea and the entire staff for the phenomenal hospitality. See you soon!

“Flag Island Resort is an incredible place to stay and I would recommend it to anyone! I personally know the owners and got the chance to meet the rest of the staff. I can truly say that they are not only phenomenal at their jobs, but they are kind, genuine people that love what they do. From the dock, to the restaurant, and to your cabin, you will not be disappointed. The bar/restaurant is filled with great food and even better service. From house keeping to fishing guides, Flag Island Resort exceeded my expectations. If I could have stayed longer, I would have. I will definitely be visiting again very soon!!”
