Resort Activities



Throughout our Summer Season, Train Bell has planned activities for the entire family, no matter what age you are~

minnow_racesYou can grab a minnow to race at our International Minnow Dragway, enjoy a train ride on the “Train Bell Express”, search for special coins hidden on the beach at our Penny Hunt, toss a chicken with our famous Charlie the Chicken, watch a movie with fresh popcorn Under the Stars, demonstrate your talent and creativity in our Coloring Contests, fish your heart out for our weekly Fishing Contests, join ELVIS for a night of surprises, and dance to our own DJ at our guests favorite, the weekly finale, The Big Dance with prizes and giveaways for all.gallery4

Your entire family will enjoy the long, gradual sandy beach. You can wade in the crystal water or just place a lawn chair by the waters edge and feel the sand between your toes. If you feel like working up a sweat, try a game of sand volleyball or a game of horseshoes. Or get wet and play a game of water volleyball or basketball.

Explore the lake on our relaxing pontoon, or take out a paddleboat or kayak with your best friend. On land, try out our Snakes & Ladders, Texas Horseshoes, Bean Bag Toss or a game of Volleyball on our sand court.

Our Recreation Center is available for all ages of our Train Bell guests to enjoy.  The Recreation Center is filled with fun and entertainment for everyone and is a great place to meet new friends.  You will find electronic games, pool table, child’s activity area, board games, puzzles, and a library full of books.

We are located right on the Paul Bunyan Paved Recreational Trail.  You and your family can hike, bike, roller blade, ski or snowmobile. The Paul Bunyan Trail is a 100-mile gateway to twelve communities stretching from Brainerd to Bemidji, Minnesota.

Here at Train Bell Resort, we help your family make memories that will last a lifetime.  Enjoy the quiet relaxation of Train Bell Resort, for you have earned it.d

Train-Bell-Kid-holding-fishA Minnesota fishing adventure awaits you right outside your door. A variety of fish species make their home in North Long Lake. The 6,000 acres of water allows both fisherman and skiers a different view each time they go out.  Bring your own boat or rent one from us.  The lake is known for its walleye and northern fishing. It also has an abundant amount of small and large mouth bass, crappies, sunfish and perch. There is a great concrete boat launching ramp just a block north of the resort. We have convenient boat trailer parking on the resort.  Local Guide Service is also available.  Whether you like early Spring, Summer or Fall or Winter fishing, North Long Lake is sure to fill your stringer year-round! All you need is a line and some bait!
