A beautiful May 14th sunset on Big Jessie Lake!
Welcome to Rising Eagle Resort, your home away from home! We are located on the north end of Big Jessie Lake in the beautiful Chippewa National Forest in northern Minnesota, near Talmoon.
We are Steve and Patsy Bowers and Terry and Angie (Bowers) Dryden and we are looking forward to meeting you! We know that vacations don't come often enough and thus we are totally committed in helping to make your vacation at Rising Eagle Resort a wonderful experience for you, your family, and friends.
We have 6 modern housekeeping cabins as well as our family house which can sleep up to 10 people. All rental units are designated nonsmoking. We have a small playground as well as a marked sandy swimming area. We also have 2 fire pits that are available for your family bonfire nights, and the firewood is provided at no charge. There is an on-site fish cleaning house for your use. We have plenty of yard games for the young and young-at-heart. On those occasional rainy days, you can relax with a book, a game of cards, board games, or with a large collection of movies and gospel and inspirational CDs.
Our grounds are fairly flat making accessibility a bit easier. There are a few low steps up to some of the cabins, but there are no inclines or hills on the property from the lake to the cabins.
Big Jessie Lake is a 1753-acre lake with 9 miles of shoreline and a maximum depth of 42 feet. It is a very popular lake for walleye fishing and is actively managed by the Minnesota DNR. Big Jessie also has northern pike, crappie, bluegill, largemouth bass, sunfish, rock bass, and perch.

While on the lake, you can see a variety of wildlife including loons, deer, pelicans, woodpeckers, hummingbirds, songbirds, and bald eagles. In the autumn, you are treated with outstanding fall colors and crisp days. Stop by any day for a complimentary hot cup of coffee.
There's nothing like relaxing by a fire, listening to the sounds of nature and the water lapping against the shore, or the sight of a beautiful sunrise and sunset to restore the body, mind, and spirit. So come and "get away from it all" at Rising Eagle Resort!
