Minnesota Ice Fishing Sleeper Houses -
Camping on Ice While Fishing!

sleeper0house.jpgDan Gibbins has more than 40 years of guiding under his belt and he takes the business of finding fish very seriously! He and his experienced guides are all avid fishermen, so with their combined efforts, you can be assured of being in the right spot. 

The service starts when you arrive at our landing. We will help you transport your gear into the Bombardier track vehicles and bring you out to a heated, clean house. The holes are ready, the bait is provided, and as soon as you get settled in you are fishing.

Part of the fun is being left out on the ice on your own, but there is also security in knowing that a marine band radio connects you to the mainland in the event of an emergency - like running out of bait!


Our houses are 12 feet by 18 feet or 12 feet by 14 feet with vaulted ceilings for a spacious feeling. They are furnished with a table, chairs, bunks to sleep up to 6 people comfortably, an attached restroom to the outside of the house, and 2 ice holes per person for fishing. We provide the bait.

Each kitchen is equipped with the essentials: propane stove with oven, percolator coffee, pot, pans, basic cooking utensils, flatware, dishes, and dish soap. We provide clean water for cooking and drinking.

The houses do not have generators, but you are welcome to bring a small one. Keep cozy in all of our houses with propane heat. Each house is hard-wired with one receptacle. If you bring your own generator, you will need a cord to provide a cord to connect the generator to the outside receptacle and a power strip/extension cord to plug inside of the house. We have a couple of generators available to rent for $35 a day, plus gas. Please call ahead if you wish to reserve one.

NEW! A shower house is now available to use at Bur Oak Campground just down the road from the sleeper office. The showers are coin-operated. 

I just wanted to let you know what a great time we all had in your sleeper house. We were very impressed with how well stocked and clean they are and the gentlemen that you have working for you are awesome. They were all very helpful, polite, and informative. It is very nice to know that someone will be checking on you a couple of times during the day if there were any concerns. I am guessing we must have caught close to 100 fish! ~ Timothy and Denise Lillis
My 8 1/2-year-old grandson caught his first walleye in one of your houses. He is one happy guy! Thanks for the great service! ~ Ken
