Minnesota Ice Fishing Sleeper Houses -
Camping on Ice While Fishing!


          Dan Gibbins has more than 40 years of guiding under his belt and he takes the business of finding fish very seriously! He and his experienced guides are all avid fisherman, so with their combined efforts, you can be assured of being in the right spot. 

          The service starts when you arrive at our landing. We will help you transport your gear into the Bombardier track vehicles and bring you out to a heated, clean and ready house. The holes are ready, the bait is provided and as soon as you get settled in - you are fishin'. Part of the fun is being left out on the ice on your own, but there is also security in knowing that a marine band radio connects you to mainland in the event of an emergency - like running out of bait or something!


          The bunks are comfy and the kitchen is equipped with the essentials. Our houses are 12 feet by 18 feet or 12 feet by 14 feet with vaulted ceilings for a spacious feeling. They are furnished with a table, chairs, bunks to sleep up to 6 people comfortably, an attached restroom to the outside of the house and 2 ice holes per person for fishing. 

          New in December 2018! Many houses now have LED lights and some houses have electrical availability. Other houses have propane lights.  Keep cozy in all of our houses with propane heat.  Cooking facilities include a propane stove with oven, coffee pot, pans, cooking utensils, flatware, dishes, and dish soap. We provide water for cooking and drinking.  The houses do not have generators, but you are welcome to bring a small one with you. Each house is hard-wired with one receptacle. You will need a cord to plug in the generator into the house on the outside and a power strip/extension cord for the inside of the house.


Bait is provided and jig sticks are available if you need them.

          You will need to bring - sleeping bags, coolers for groceries and beverages, a filet knife, fishing gear and your personal items.

          A Minnesota fishing license is required. To purchase a license click here or call 888-MN-LICEN (665-4236). For information about current fish limits, click here.

          Vexilars are available to rent for $20 per day. Call ahead to reserve yours, 218-634-1589.

Just wanted to let you know what a great time we all had in your sleeper house. We were very impressed with how well stocked and clean they are and the gentlemen that you have working for you are awesome. They were all very helpful, polite, and informative. It is very nice to know that someone will be checking on you a couple times during the day if there were any concerns. I am guessing we must have caught close to 100 fish! ~ Timothy and Denise Lillis
 My 8 1/2 year old grandson caught his first walleye in one of your houses. He is one happy guy! Thanks for the great service! ~ Ken
