Welcome to Whispering Pines Resort!

Started in 1947, Whispering Pines Resort is known to some of the best fishing on Big Pine Lake four miles north of Perham, MN in Otter Tail County.


Mostly known for the Walleye fishing, Big Pine Lake is over 4700 acres and is also home to Northern Pike, Bass, Crappie, and Panfish.  You can fish from our 185 foot fishing dock, enjoy a day of fishing with your group on our pontoon, use one of our fish boat rentals or bring your own boat.  A variety of bait, ice, and gas is available for purchase at our our store.


Whispering Pines Resort has 325 feet of gorgeous sandy beach with a swimming area stocked with Hydro-bikes, paddle boards, kayaks and a playground for your family's enjoyment.  A canoe, with paddles, is also available to check out other wildlife on Big Pine Lake.


Our cozy and comfortable, modern housekeeping cabins are stocked with all you need for your "home away from home"  at Whispering Pines Resort.  Each cabin has a set of dishes, coffee maker, heat, air conditioning, WI-FI, a charcoal grill and picnic tables.  Simply bring your food, swimming suit, and fishing gear to be ready for a week of relaxing in the Northland.


Also for your vacation enjoyment are some of the area's premiere championship golf courses, horseback riding, theaters, churches, fishing guide services and a wonderful variety of shopping opportunites and restaurants in the Perham area.
