Rent a Fish House

Staying on the ice isn’t the simple experience it used to be.  All of The Red Door Resort’s fish house rentals come with warm heaters, RV stoves with ovens, basic cooking utensils, rattle reels, catch covers and either on-board bathrooms or access to conveniently located porta-potties.  Generators – along with extra premium fuel – are supplied for each wheelhouse and each skid house at least 10’x20′ in size.

We are also in the process of adding flat screen TVs, DVD players and retro game consoles to the fish house rentals.   Our larger rentals are also equipped with access to WiFi.

Mille Lacs Ice Report


Access Mille Lacs Ice Roads
The Red Ice Team works tirelessly to plow and maintain miles of wide ice highways on the north side of Mille Lacs Lake.  The road system covers both the sand breaks and a number of mud flats (see map examples below). 
The Ice Roads are accessible to Red Door members (i.e., those with seasonal sites at the resort), and season pass holders.  A limited number of weekend wheelhouse passes are also available; please call the office (218-678-3686) to reserve.  Single day vehicle-only (i.e., no wheelhouse) drive outs are not limited and no reservation is required.

Ice Roads Map
The Red Door Resort ice highways generally cover the sand breaks close to the north shore as well as the mud flats (e.g., Weimer, Bomback, Pantry, Resort, Matton, Purity, Phil’s, Fishhouse, Eileen’s, Fletcher, Bitcher, Backer and 8 Mile) that are located starting 3/4 miles out from shore.  Established roads usually start with access to the first and second breaks and the close in flats and gradually expand further out as the hard water season continues.
Maps of the 2021-2022 and 2020-2021 road systems are pictured below.  Please note that these maps are indicative of and do not necessarily represent the current established roads.  For the most accurate information, please visit our blog and click on Mille Lacs Ice Report for the latest map and ice conditions.
