GROWING. TOGETHER.

Northern Pines is a year-round camp and retreat destination situated on a 48-acre site on the southeast shore of Fish Hook Lake in north central Minnesota. 

We are nestled in and among towering pine trees just north of Park Rapids, in the area known as the Heartland of northern Minnesota. The headwaters of the mighty Mississippi River and Itasca State Park are just a short drive from this ideal Northwoods setting.

Experience a summer camp, retreat, family reunion or holiday, wedding, church picnic, or business meeting. Our setting and facilities can accommodate groups of 200+ or multiple groups sharing the various amenities. Whether you are looking for a great kids camp, sleepaway camp, youth camp, adult retreat, outdoor adventure or a cabin to rent for a getaway we look forward to serving you.

Whatever the season or whatever the reason, Northern Pines is a beautiful place to be.

Northern Pines–building  connections with Christ, Community and Creation.
