We love our pets, but they are confined to our home.  Upper Cullen Resort has always been a "Pet-Free" resort.  You don't have to worry about disease or other nasty stuff left behind by someone else's pet.  We simply don't allow any guest pets in our resort, period.

Great Lakes!Click here for more Lake Pictures  The three-lake Cullen chain boasts some of the most consistent fishing here in the Brainerd Lakes Area.  Abundant northern, bass, sunfish, bluegill, crappie and some walleye gives Upper Cullen it's reputation for consistency while maintaining just enough of a challenge to entice even the best anglers to try their luck. Kids can catch pan fish right off our service dock.  Download a Lake Map Here.  Come explore the Cullen Chain of Lakes, Nisswa's Best Kept Secret!  All Fishing Licenses are available by telephone in our store.  Call well before your arrival date (right from home) to apply for your Minnesota fishing license:  888-665-4236.  You can also use our store courtesy phone after you arrive and obtain a fishing license number immediately.
Our  Lake.Click here for more Lake Pictures  Upper Cullen Lake, the most serene and undeveloped of the three lakes in the Cullen Chain has no public launch access (other than our private resort boat launch) which preserves the quality of life here for the lake's residents and guests. This 435 acre lake is yours to enjoy without the crowding and amount of boating traffic found on some other lakes.  At one and one quarter miles across and 40 feet deep, Upper Cullen Lake is perfect for swimming, fishing and most water sports and is navigable during most all weather conditions. (FACTOID: Our resort was one of the finalist locations considered for the filming of the movie "Grumpier Old Men").  Fascinating Underwater Photos
