Welcome to Your Boat Club on Pokegama!
We are located at The Pickled Loon Saloon of Grand Rapids, off of Hwy 169.
According to Northland Tackle, “This 6,700-acre lake near Grand Rapids, MN is the largest of a series of lakes on the Upper Mississippi River that includes Jay Gould Lake, Little Jay Gould Lake and others. Though its shoreline is well developed, the lake is deep, clear and has a reputation for producing above-average walleye…”
There are some good eats in addition to The Pickled Loon Saloon, but they’re a little further from the lake. Up Highway 169 is The Boulder Tap House of Grand Rapids, known for its House Made Boulder Cheese Curds, Tap House Potatoes, and family-friendly atmosphere. Up the road a little further is Klockow Brewing Co. and Rapids Brewing Company, a great set of pit-stops for beer lovers while visiting YBC on Pokegama.
If you’re looking to stay on the quieter side of Lake Pokegama, Pokegama Lake Resort is a cozy, family-oriented destination with lodge rooms & cabins, canoe rentals, and a beach front. Also on this side of the lake is Southwood Resort, a set of rustic cabins also on the lakeside. Though they’re not located in the heart of Grand Rapids, the drive to town is still super accessible, (just under 10 minutes!) so don’t feel like you have to miss out on any of the local establishments or activities.
