Jack The Horse Resort Road & Peaceful Point Road are private roads and may not be used to access public land. Out of courtesy to resort guests and neighbors on the lake, we do not allow resort guests to hunt or shoot on or around Jack The Horse Lake (including public land) at any time.

No Pets: Pets are not allowed on resort property or inside the cabins at any time.

Fish Cleaning: There is a fish cleaning house and instructions for disposal of fish remains in the fish house.

Daily Boat/Pontoon Rental: Daily rentals are from 10 AM-9 PM. Boats may not be out after dark. Please contact management 1 day prior to rental for daily rentals.

Boating: Guests bringing their own boat, must have it inspected by management before putting it in Jack The Horse Lake. If your boat is going to other lakes, it must be inspected each time it’s put into JTHL. Please be courteous on the lake. Also, please keep in mind that according to MN boating regulations – it is against the law to operate watercraft so that its wash or wake endangers, harasses or interferes with any person or property. It is within your rights to notify someone if they are interfering with you or your property. Jack-The-Horse Resort does not allow resort guests to jet ski, water ski, tube, etc. on Jack The Horse Lake.

Campfire: There is 1 campfire pit for resort guests located at the beach. Complimentary wood can be used from the shed near the One Way sign. Campfires should be attended at all times and extinguished with water after each use. Please extinguish campfire by 12 AM.

Grilling: Each cabin has a grill. Please only use charcoal in it – no campfires or wood fires. Caution: Decks are slippery when wet.

Life Jackets: Life jackets are located in the office. Minnesota law states that a readily accessible and wearable life jacket (boat cushions do not count) is required for each person on board – this includes paddle boards, kayaks, canoes, paddle boats, etc. Children under 10 years old are required to wear a life jacket. We recommend wearing a life jacket at all times when on or near the water. Please refer to the current MN State Boating Guide for all up to date rules. Please return life jackets to the office before check-out.

Motor Mix: Please contact us for additional motor mix – using your own will damage motors.

Please use items for up to 2 hours at a time and return to the beach for other guests to use. You may take out these items multiple times per day. Life jackets are required for these items.
