Timber Trails Resort was established in 1948 and is located on Boy Lake. The resort/campground is situated on 17 acres in the Chippewa National Forest and offers 10 cabins and 12 campsites. The lake, also referred to as Big Boy Lake, is 3200 acres with 21 miles of scenic shoreline. Tom and Kathy Marnik are the 4th owners and are in their 4th season. Prior to moving to Remer they lived in Bellevue, NE where they raised their two children Michael and Jennifer. Kathy says, "We fell in love with this area while vacationing 'Up-North' at a resort on Leech Lake for many summers, often day-dreaming of owning one ourselves one day. Well, once the kids were done with school and on their own, it was time for us to make a career change and here we are!"
She also mentioned the fishing on Boy Lake is awesome! It is common to catch Walleye, Crappie, Northern, Sunnies and Bass. During the summer, Tom & Kathy offer a canoe trip down the Boy River where you are dropped off and then get to paddle back to the resort, enjoying the scenery along the way. Boat rentals, live bait, gas, groceries, ice cream and more are available to their resort guests as well as others staying on the lake. They keep three cabins open year round and host duck, deer & grouse hunters as well as ice fishermen and snowmobilers. It's also great for those just looking to escape the city life!
