It's about doing...
It's about reconnecting with nature...
"There's a real need in our crazy, busy world to find harmony in nature."
Instead of skyscraping steel, you will find towering white pine trees, hundreds of years old, bearing strong limbs and rustling branches of fragrant pine needles offering a high, commanding perch for grandest of birds...the bald eagle. The sweeping majesty of the eagle, with its wingspan of many feet, leaving its perch is a sight to behold.
Instead of bumper to bumper traffic, you'll find the inquisitive black bear, the elusive and reclusive wolf, the mighty moose, and the fleet-footed white tail deer.
Awesome to Hear…Incredible to See
The sound of song birds and the mournful call of the loon replace the blaring car horns, and the worries of everyday life disappers through the widening ripples of water as a you catch a glimpse of a fish jumping up, and out of the clean northern lake waters, for the briefest of moments.

Want To Go Fishing?
Look at northern Minnesota MN, and you'll find Birch Lake. It's not small-5,628 acres-but it has a bunch of 1- to 2-pounders, roughly three times the state average, according to DNR testing. Maximum depth is about 25 feet, so Birch might produce an opening day bite. . ." "a lesser-known honey hole that is brimming with walleyes just waiting to be caught someday."

Birch Lake and River Point Resort are the location! Minnesota Fishing Resorts at their finest.
