Muskie fishing on North Star Lake

Some of our guests at Cedar Point Resort have had some luck muskie fishing. No, not all of our guests are “muskie hunters.” And not all of our guests go out fishing at all. This time of year is an awesome time to come up and look at the colors.

North Star Lake has been just so beautiful this year. This photo was taken by one of our guests. The rainbow both starts and ends on North Star Lake in such a way that it framed our beach area.
