Fishing has been a Minnesota pastime for years and is still one of the top activities bringing guests to Lake Villard. Lake Villard is 536 areas, with a maximum depth of 17 feet. It has 3.6 miles of shoreline and anglers hook walleye, northern pike, bluegills, black crappie, yellow perch and largemouth bass.

Lake Villard is the second in a series of three lakes. Lake Leven in to the north with 283 acres, 2.68 miles of shoreline and a depth of 13 feet. Lake Amelia is to the south with 932 acres, 7.33 miles of shoreline and a maximum depth of 71 feet.

Fishing on Lake Villard has remained a secret, since we are the only resort on the lake. There are many fishing hot spots and some of the best fishing can be done right on our docks! You will have plenty of excitement with your children as you teach them new skills.

Though fishing is great throughout the year, spring and fall are the prime times to fish in our area. With this in mind, we have special cabin rates during this time of year.

A new Fish Surgery (cleaning) House is located by our pond. All fish remains are composted.
