The Deep Portage Difference...
You sense it the moment you start down our 2-1/2 mile driveway. You have arrived at the region's finest full service environmental education/outdoor recreation center. Here before you lies Minnesota's largest outdoor classroom. Nearly ten square miles of rolling hills, pristine lakes and dense forests await your exploration. It's a quiet land of sandy glacial hills, where the majestic red pine grows and Orion shines with unparalleled clarity. At the end of the drive, nestled between a glacial ridge and Big Deep lake, is your home away from home -- the 54,000 square foot cedar and fieldstone Resource Heritage Center Lodge. Our friendly staff and home cooked meals make your stay an extraordinary experience.
In honor of our 40th anniversary, we are calling for submissions to The Spirit of Deep Portage, a short anthology of creative nonfiction, nature facts and personal illustrations about our conservation reserve.
