What’s New This Summer at Ruttger’s (2024)

We’ve got a lot going on this summer, from reimagined cabins to exciting new activities. We can’t wait to share it with you.

Outdoor Pool

During the summer 2024 season, our outdoor pool area will remain closed for maintenance and improvements.

It was not Ruttger’s decision to close our outdoor pool. We requested a variance with the State of Minnesota to operate the pool for one more season. The variance was denied late in the afternoon of June 7.

We understand that this may cause inconvenience, and we sincerely apologize.

However, the enhancements we are making will greatly enhance your overall enjoyment during your stay. Our team is working diligently to ensure the upgrades are completed swiftly. We appreciate your patience and understanding during this time.

More to Do Than Ever Before

Experience our new, expanded, and classic amenities and activities including:


NEW Alec’s 9
: Take a swing at our freshly renovated 9-hole executive course and be one of the first to try for a hole in one.


NEW Games on the Green
: The latest in family fun at Ruttger’s. Experience classic lawn games and our backyard carnival on a beautiful bent-grass green.


Beach Areas
: Soak up the sun and enjoy the natural beauty at one of our two lakeside beach areas. Our designated swimming area ensures a worry-free experience whether you're a seasoned swimmer or just want to wade in. The soft sand beach offers the perfect area to sunbathe, build sandcastles or read a book.

The West Beach, located just west of the swimming area, offers a quieter place to sit and relax while enjoying a beautiful view of Bay Lake.


Inflatables on the Lake
: For those seeking adventure, check out the floating playground on the lake. Kid's love it, and adults can't resist it either. Get ready to bounce, slide and splash - it’s like a water-themed adventure park right here at Ruttger’s!


Marina Rentals
: Discover Bay Lake from a whole new perspective. Whether you’re into paddleboarding, kayaking, fishing, or cruising there'll be something for everyone. Your lake adventure awaits! See Marina Rates.


Indoor Pool, Hot Tub, & Sauna
: Make a splash or just relax, no matter the weather, in our indoor pool and hot tub. Or take time to unwind in the sauna.

Our staff will be happy to assist you in making the most of your stay.

Thank you for choosing our resort. We look forward to welcoming you back to an even better experience once the enhancements are complete!

Warm regards,
Michael Cameron
General Manager
