Thank you for your interest in our cabins.   Our cabins are enjoyed by many people year around and we hope to have you as a guest as well so you can experience the rustic solitude that keeps our guests returning year after year.

Our cabins are not located on a lake, but rather deep in the forest. They are a close proximity to many variety of Lakes and are especially sought after for their quiet and solitude and the great trails you'll find right out the door, as well as a flock of chickadees waiting to eat out of your hand.

Our cabins at Bally Creek Camp are only six miles from downtown Grand Marais and are therefore very convenient to dining out and shopping. Also, there is a public indoor swimming pool with whirlpool and showers right in town. (YMCA) We have a wonderful sauna for you to enjoy at Bally Creek.

Ski Trail System, and a spur trail to The Superior Hiking Trail, which can be used for snowshoeing in the winter. The Ski Trail lends itself to mountain biking in the summer as well as excellent hiking and hunting in season.


When staying at Bally Creek Camp, you must bring your own linens (most people bring sleeping bags to throw on the beds), towels, & cooking & eating utensils. We supply the wood for the woodstove, a one-burner butane cook stove, water in 5 gallon containers, lanterns & fuel. There is a teapot in the cabin and a wash basin.  You may bring your pets (horses also), we just ask that you walk them under control so as not to bother other guests.

 Seagull  Outpost Update

 Please Note –Map to Bally Creek Cabins (not to scale)

The Sauna “Barely Behind”

Our Seagull Outpost 54 miles up the Gunflint Trail was totally destroyed in the Ham Lake Forest Fire in May of 2007.  All 46 acres of our property was burned.  We have begun the process of reclaiming the land,.  The trees are starting to grow back and will soon be over 6 ft. tall. We have decided to sell four 10 acre parcels., on land contract   If you are interested , please give us a call…It’s only one block to the public landing on Seagull Lake.

We have planted one million white pine seeds by helicopter, and hand-planted another 2500 red pine.  The wild flowers have come in with a vengeance, and we are discovering the beauty in the large house-sized rock that remains.  We still mourn the loss of the timber, but know that time heals all wounds.   The blueberries were the first to return…
