Create your family and fishing memories at Niemeyer’s Rugged River Resort. We are located in the heart of the Brainerd Lakes area. In the space of one mile, you are off the busy highway and into a tranquil environment surrounded by woods and water. Spread over 100 acres, with a mile of undeveloped shoreline, the resort and RV parks offer family enjoyment, solitude and the unspoiled beauty of the Mississippi River. Once you’ve arrived, it’s hard to believe you are only minutes away from the many activities of the Brainerd Lakes Area. Make us your family tradition!


We are closed for the 2020 Season

We hope to see you at the resort in 2021.

A note to our current and future guests – Regarding our Covid 19 response.

All cabin & seasonal RV reservations will be able to take place as currently booked. We can work with you to move your stay later in the summer if that would work better for you. Our location is away from the city, and unlike many businesses, we have little foot traffic and many acres of woodland to separate us from others. Our cabins are not rated for large groups and guests can easily be naturally and socially distanced at our cabins and on the river.


We have best practices in place as outlined by the Dept of Health for cleaning and have purchased an EPA approved sanitizing product we will use in all of our cabins. We have decided to move check in to 4:00 pm and check out to between 8:00-9AM to allow us more time to clean and do laundry. We are also eliminating, board games, puzzles, cards, comforters and extra blankets & pillows in the cabins. Please bring your own. We will provide pillows (In protectors), mattress protector, sheets and a blanket. If you think you want more you can bring your favorite with you. We will launder ALL bedding, kitchen towels & potholders after every guest stay.


We are asking all cabins to social distance from others while moving around the resort and in the office. We are also offering cloth masks for anyone that needs one. We will have hand sanitizing stations around the resort in high traffic areas.


We are in this with you. The safety of everyone involved is a priority to us. We believe if we act responsibly – We can enjoy the outdoors and all the resort has to offer.

Take care and stay healthy.
