Lake Superior water is known for being cold, refreshing, and the perfect place for a swim! If you’re looking for a relaxing day by the waves, Odyssey Resorts is right on the shoreline, making it easy to plan a beach day — whether solo, with kids, or a large group. If you’re looking for an alternative right outside your room, our indoor and outdoor pools and hot tubs offer an easy place to kick back and relax between activities.


Love to fish? Lake Superior is ideal for all levels of fishing, from first timers to those with years of experience. To discover the best spots in the area, Odyssey Resorts’ skilled fishing guides will take you to nearby streams, rivers, and lake regions great for fresh catches in a scenic, peaceful setting.

For novices, groups, or anyone looking to experience the lake’s unique landscape, try Lake Superior Charter Fishing from June-August. Guides provide tackle, gear, bait, life jackets and complimentary fish cleaning, making it simple and convenient to catch fish of all kinds.

Set in smaller streams, Tenkara Fly Fishing uses minimal equipment making it easy to navigate narrow rivers in the North Woods and beyond. This type of fishing has historic roots, originating in Japan’s mountain streams, and is accessible for all levels.

Canoeing and Kayaking

Float along the water in a kayak for smooth paddling and great views from right on the lake. Whether you choose to learn from an expert guide with a guided experience or bring your own equipment for more adventures, there’s no better way to explore your surroundings. For an even more laid-back option, try a canoeing tour among Superior National Forest and learn about local ecology along the way.

Surfing, Sailing, Jet Skiing and Wakeboarding

Lake Superior truly offers something for everyone. With local options for renting more advanced equipment for boating and surfing, you can even take it easy with a relaxing sail or opt for a high-speed adventure among the waves.
