Bond Falls Flowage, just above Bond Falls, is an angler's delight for year round fishing. The boat ramp is just a few miles from the resort and the flowage offers with excellent boating and year round fishing.
The Park, just a short distance past the Bond Falls Outpost on Bond Falls Road, offers a nice sandy beach with picnic tables, grills, and a playground for summer fun and swimming. Several picnic and sandy swimming areas are nestled in the woods along the shoreline. A delightful spot to spend the day.
Nearby Bond Falls is one of the Upper Peninsula's most picturesque waterfalls with a nice viewing and picnic area. The new road to the bottom of the falls and the new boardwalks make Bond Falls easily accessible for most visitors.

The town of Watersmeet and Bruce Crossing are nearby for shopping and golfing, and there is a casino in Watersmeet. Don't forget to explore the mysterious Paulding Light, only a short distance from the resort, as it rises out of the forest and hovers for a few minutes almost every evening as darkness falls.

the north woods.
