Evergreen Lodge Family Resort

About Evergreen Lodge Family Resort

Evergreen Lodge is a family housekeeping resort located on the west end of Big Sand Lake. We are 2 miles east of the Hwy. 71 and Hwy. 34 stoplight in Park Rapids, then 5 miles north on County Road 4 (the Lake George Road).

Evergreen offers 18 cottages on 1,000 feet of sand beach. While our exceptional beach and clear, clean lake are our main attractions, many activities are included in the cottage rates. Some of our activities are: tennis, shuffleboad, volleyball, softball, ping pong, football and hockey games.

14' Lund boats are available for use; motors can be rented by the day or week. There is no charge for use of the boats, canoes or kayaks or paddleboards. Pontoon Rental also available.

A cement boat ramp is available for guest use only and includes tractor service, if needed, at no charge. Each cottage has dock space for one boat, yours or ours. We recommend beaching larger boats at night.

Several play sets are located along the lake front. Our activity field includes the pirate ship, castle and hobbit house, plus soccer, volleyball and baseball areas.


Supervised Playtime for children ages 3-10 is offered from 10:00 a.m. - 11:30 a.m. from Monday through Thursday. It is available mid-June to mid-August.

Our rustic lodge, a "No Smoking area", houses our office, store, Rec Room, Book Nook, and visiting areas, plus Wi-Fi connection. It does not offer pool tables, video games or TV. (Our TV reception is 1 channel, CBS, should you wish to bring TV with antenna.)

The store handles pop, candy, ice cream treats, postcards, sweatshirts, and gas sales. We do not sell bread, milk, ice, cigarettes, beer, bait or fishing licenses, and have no food service.

Evergreen is not for everyone. It is very much a "family vacation" resort and not a "party place". While there is much to do and enjoy in our peaceful pine setting, nothing is "organized" or "scheduled" except our morning playtime. You set the schedule and the pace!

In order to insure a peaceful and relaxing stay, we allow NO PETS, NO ATVs, and NO JET-SKIS, please. In consideration of others, we also request quiet between 10:30 p.m. and 9 a.m.

Evergreen offers NO CAMPING FACILITIES, NO TRAILER SITES and NO PUBLIC BOAT RENTAL OR LAUNCHING. All facilities are for guests use only.

If Evergreen will fit your needs, we hope you will contact us soon to finalize your vacation plans. please note, we do not accept credit cards.

2019 marks our 62nd year at Evergreen. We'd be pleased to share our lodge with you!
