Located in the Brainerd Lakes Area Near The Cuyuna Country Recreation Area

Welcome to Red Rider Resort located next to the Cuyuna Country Recreation Area in Crosby, Minnesota. We bought this property and  fell in love with it. And we thought it would be a great idea to share the property with anyone who loves Cuyuna. With its clean water, woods, and nature. At our Brained Lakes Area Resort we wanted to preserve as much of the wooded area as possible. So most cabins will accommodate one vehicle parking. 

We have some of the greatest views of the water you will ever see. However with a 35′ bluff to the water it can be too steep. So to enjoy the waters edge we have provided steps down to a dock onto the pit. Or take a short walk or bike ride to the water on the other side of the pit. To the DNR Public Access. The Public Access offers a gradual area good for kids to swim. We recommend you keep in mind water safety as the pit depth can be up to 161′ or more with drop offs so we recommend life jackets to be worn at all times when on the water.   Manual mine pit is a non motorized, carry on access pit lake.  Great for Paddle Boards, and Kayaking.

We are located on Manual mine pit on the far east side of the Cuyuna Recreational area. It is a short ride down our access trail to connect to the Cuyuna Recreational trails. With future expansion of the trails you will be able to ride 3 days without riding the same trail. In the winter the trails are groomed for Fat Tire bikes and also are great for snowshoeing.

Manual Mine Pit is stocked yearly with Rainbow trout and we offer winter guided trips or in the summer rent a kayak or fish off our 25′ dock. (You do need a trout stamp to fish this pit.)  

We look forward to seeing you!
