Sunset Bay Resort, nestled among 15 wooded acres, offers 550' of clean sandy shore, buoyed swimming area with raft & water sports, beachside playground, horseshoe pits, volleyball & badminton, basketball & a game room with air hockey, foosball, books, magazines, toys, & table games.

Located on the east shore of Dead Lake's north bay, Sunset Bay is only 3 miles south of Dent and 4 miles west of Richville on Otter Tail County Highway 44. Just minutes from Perham, Ottertail City, Fergus Falls & Detroit Lakes. We’re about 200 miles northwest of the Minneapolis/St. Paul airport, or 70 miles southeast of Fargo, using US Hwy 10 or I-94.

Our 8 cedar-sided cabins all face the lake, are only 80-90 feet from the lake, and are at least 30 feet apart for privacy. All had new carpet, mattresses/box springs, and exterior stain completed in 2013! We are also in the process of installing new metal roofs! They have fully equipped kitchens and private bathrooms with showers (bring your own towels). They are comfortably furnished; each bedroom has a double bed (one bedroom has a set of bunkbeds), and each living area has a futon (we furnish nice, clean bedding for all). Picnic tables, charcoal grills, Adirondack chairs and lakeside fire pits are provided.

We have 4 camping sites suitable for tents, campers, or RVs, each with 30 Amp electric & water hookups. In 2015 we added a new travel trailer to rent! Restroom and shower facilities are provided, as well as access to all resort amenities. Camping rates include boat launch and beach space for one boat per site.

The office contains a small store with a few non-perishable grocery items, snacks, frozen treats, & souvenir items. We also sell ice and boat gas/oil.

One 14-foot boat, or launch and dock space for your boat, is provided with each cabin. Paddleboats, a canoe, and fish cleaning facilities are all available at no charge to guests. Dock space, boats, motors, boat launch, a pontoon & window AC units may be rented as available
