On Beautiful White Earth Lake

Due to Governor Waltz’s new mandate it is required that everyone needs to wear a mask in the Lodge starting July 25th until further notice.

At Cedar Crest Resort on Beautiful White Earth Lake, we’re committed to keeping your traditions alive.  For more than three decades, this secluded, 40-acre slice of heaven has been open to folks who are an awful lot like us, looking to relax, play on the water, and make vacation memories here at Cedar Crest Resort.

Stunning Nature

We invite you to relax and enjoy the breathtaking scenery, clean, clear waters, comfortable atmosphere and the exceptional year-round service you’ll receive at Cedar Crest Resort of Waubun, MN. Here, kids still spend endless hours in their swimming suits on the large, sandy beach of a mostly-undeveloped lake, and hike on peaceful North Woods trails. Discover for yourself why no one leaves our resort in search of better entertainment.

After all these years, nothing better exists.

Pristine Waters

Over 75% of beautiful, pristine White Earth Lake remains undeveloped. The lake covers over 2,000 acres and features 2 islands. It is the 3rd clearest lake in Minnesota, with water clarity to roughly 15 feet. An abundance of walleye, sturgeon, panfish, bass and northern make White Earth Lake a fisherman’s paradise.
