Pine Ridge Resort Frequently Asked Questions

Pet Policy

We have a “No Pet” policy;  but if you would like to have your pet close by, there is a great “Pet Resort” near by:
Paws & Claws Rescue & Resort  218-363-3343


Boat Launching
 Because of the ridge line that runs through the resort, there is no room for a launching facility here at the resort.  Fortunately, there is an excellent public access just across the lake in Longville.  Once all your gear is unloaded from the boat upon your arrival at the resort, it is a quick trip into Longville to the launch.  Back at the resort, Pine Ridge Resort has five docks in front of the cabins where your boat is moored during your stay.  Trailers are brought back to the resort where we park them for the week. 


Water Hazards

A major concern of all boaters, and especially those of you bringing your own outfits to fish or play in, is the potential hazards in the lake that can damage your boat. The Cass County Sheriff’s Patrol does an excellent job on the entire Woman Lake Chain of marking potential rocks, stumps and other items with large buoys  Hazards should not be a problem if you are paying proper attention. 


Camping Facilities
 Due to the hilly, wooded nature of Pine Ridge Resort, there is really no room for a campground.  Those looking for camping facilities on our chain of lakes should contact The Longville Campground at 218-363-2610.  
 Within one-half hour of the resort, there are several excellent eating establishments. Whether you want a quick and filling sandwich or a great fine dining experience, the local cafes and restaurants will satisfy your tastes.   Longville also has two places to get homemade pizza and a great ice cream shop featuring over 20 varieties of ice cream and some food items too.
Longville is fortunate to have a large, well stocked grocery store. It is open every day but you have to check the hours.  Many of you will be used to being able to run in any time to pick up the items you need.  Besides the grocery store, there is a well stocked Convenience Store that is open longer carrying bait, tackle, light groceries and many other items.


Fishing License

In a hurry to start fishing when you arrive?  Just below is a direct link to the Minnesota DNR’s website where you can buy your Minnesota Fishing license on-line.  There is a list of resident and non-resident licenses and the costs.
