The Little Red Bar…
Where the people are friendly, the beer is cold,
and the fish tales are many!!!


There are many good times in the Little Red Bar!

The historic 'Little Red Bar' welcomes visitors and guests as Indian Trail Resort celebrates another season on the World Record waters of the Chippewa Flowage. Each year an impressive count of Musky are caught out of Indian Trail Resort, with 98% of those Musky being released.

Its secluded location is only minutes away from prime Musky water and is in the vicinity where Louie Spray's World Record Musky was caught.


During the day, the family can enjoy swimming or sun bathing at our private beach.

The shelter of the trees makes the beach a great location for an afternoon fish fry.

In the evening, the fire pit on the beach is an excellent option for getting the family together and roasting marshmallows, hot dogs or making smores.


Indian Trail Resort has a full liquor bar and pizzas as well as a fine selection of quality Musky lures and, of course,  live bait and ice and dockside gas.

Indian Trail Resort gets you off to a good start !
All new guests are treated to a lake orientation conducted by
fishing guide John Dettloff.

On your complimentary trip with John, he will point out some of the lake's breathtaking scenery, the bountiful wildlife and, most importantly, he will show you some of the lake's nearby hottest fishing spots.

John, Brenda and Pat Dettloff would love to have you spend
your next vacation at Indian Trail Resort.
