October Ridge Resort

Family, Fishing & Hunting Retreat.


Take your family to October Ridge Resort, located just south of Northome, Minnesota, in the heart of the Chippewa National Forest. Here on Island Lake there's excellent fishing for walleye, northern pike, jumbo perch, smallmouth bass, largemouth bass, crappies and bluegills. We offer something for everyone, assuring no family member is left out. We now offer free WiFi, satellite TV, and for a small fee air conditioning, which can allow you to get some work done while on vacation too!  


Location Is Key

    we are located all alone on 40 acres of the south shores of beautiful 3088 acre Island lake. We are bordered on both sides by miles of Chippewa National Forest which includes Minnesota's own Lost 40 acres of virgin timber just a few miles away. It is our goal to ensure you have a relaxing and quiet family vacation (sorry, please no jet skis.) Besides fishing, hunting, hiking, boating, and many other nature related activities being right out your door, here are a few other things nearby:

  • Shopping

  • connected to ATV and Snowmobile trail systems

  • 10 mins from Minnesota's own Lost 40 state park

  • 20 mins from Golf 

  • 1 min from Avenue of Pines Scenic Byway

  • Onsite walking trails and walking trails throughout the area  (non-motorized wilderness)
