Welcome to Madsen’s Resort!
We’re proud to be a modern, family-oriented resort offering everyday people the opportunity to escape to paradise on Blanche Lake in Otter Tail County, Minnesota. Blanche Lake is a beautiful oval lake with 1,268 acres of crystal clear water and sand bottom. Well-stocked with a variety of fish – walleyes, northerns, crappies, bass and bluegills – it is a favorite for many fishermen. Blanche, half surrounded by Minnesota’s newest state park, Glendalough, is protected in a pristine setting for all to share.
With 15 comfortable housekeeping cabins situated on a beautiful relaxing setting that includes 10 acres of spacious, wooded grounds and nearly 400 feet of safe, sandy beach, our accommodations fill up quickly. Madsen’s Resort is the ideal place to partake in your favorite water sport, fish or relax with family and friends. With something for everyone, Madsen’s is the resort for you!
Madsen’s Resort Store
Our little store is well stocked with groceries, bread, milk, beer, pop and ice, as well as souvenirs including caps, T-shirts and sweatshirts. For anyone who needs to stay connected, we also have Wi-Fi available.
On days when it’s raining or you just need a break from all that sunshine, head over to our rec room, which is adjacent to the store. Entertainment includes a pool table, pinball games, foosball and video games.
Because we’re committed to your comfort, our furnished cabins are complete with a full kitchen, coffee maker, microwave, cable TV, linens and blankets, and hot showers. We do not provide them, so be sure to BRING YOUR OWN TOWELS! All of our units are housekeeping cabins, meaning we provide the cleaning supplies and trust you to maintain the cabin during your stay. This helps us keep our costs down and allows you more privacy during your visit. While you’re here, you’ll also have full use of a 14-foot aluminum fishing boat with life jackets and dock space, a Weber BBQ grill, picnic table, beach and lawn chairs, and unlimited use of kayaks ,canoes and paddleboards.
