What’s in a Name?
Sissebagamah, pronounced ‘sis-ah-bah-gaa-mah’ (Say it quickly and it will roll off your tongue.) is the Ojibwe name for Bay Lake. Bay Lake’s many bays, islands, and channels provided the area’s first residents with an obvious name for this beautiful lake. Sissebagamah, roughly translated, means “lake with arms going in many directions” or “lake with many bays.”
Though the name may be hard to pronounce, we like the “north-woods” quality that the old name gives the resort. And in the tradition of the Native Americans, we want Sissebagamah RV Resort on Bay Lake to be a place to get closer to nature, to slow down, relax and enjoy the pleasures of Minnesota’s lake country.

What About Swimming at Sissebagamah?
Our shoreline is primarily scenic wetland, which doesn’t accommodate a swimming beach. However, we have a sunning and wading area at the waters edge. And we do furnish free paddleboats with swimming decks and ladders. This is a fun way for our guests to enjoy the cool, clear waters of Bay Lake.
