White Pine on Elbow Lake

Elbow Lake in Cook, Minnesota

I manage properties on Elbow Lake, in Cook, Minnesota. I get asked the question all the time: “What is the lake like?” I decided to take some pictures for you so you could see it for yourself.

These were from a trip I took in late June of 2015. I’ll walk you through what a typical day by the lake is like for my family. By the way, if you are interested in visiting us, check out Creekside Cabin and End of the Road Cabin.

My kids like to camp out by the lake. It is a cool treat for them. We usually fish with a bobber and a leach off the dock while we cook over an open fire and hand out together. Here’s our grill. It is a natural rock fire pit with a rock crush grate on top. IMG_5373web

Here’s where the boys like to set up the tent.


I’ll get to the lake on the next page.
