Paradise Shores Resort is a place where there is something for everyone.  Children can catch their first Bass, Sunfish, Walleye, or Northern Pike while out on the lake soaking up the sun. Young adults love the proximity to Char’s Bar where they can dance the night away to live music every Saturday night. You can cook all of your meals in your cabin or  on your private campfire outside of your cabin.  For the occasional rainy day or simply the day when you don’t want to prepare your own food you can walk up to Char’s Bar and Grill where the food is delicious with daily lunch and dinner specials. For those that need to be constantly active Paradise is truly a great retreat. The resort has a section of the grounds devoted to horseshoes with three different pits, a beautiful sand volleyball court overlooking the lake, 180 feet of sandy shoreline that holds our docks, canoes, kayaks, and swimming space. If for some reason you don’t want to enjoy the beautiful grounds and lake you can spend your spare time up at Char’s Bar throwing darts, shooting pool, dancing, eating, drinking, and meeting new people!
