Couldn’t ask for a better atmosphere of family, friends and fun. You can just sit around and enjoy the history and the memories the resort has created for many people. Everyone has a great story at Dalens and the story gets to continue year after year.

Relax at Dalen’s Resort

Dalen’s Resort is your spot for cabin, boat, and motor rentals. The resort is located on Big Chetac, a 1,920-acre lake surrounded by  attractions such as the famous Tuscobia Trail, excellent restaurants, golf, tennis, horseback riding, and many other nearby lakes. Spend the day fishing for bluegill  walleye, and northern bass. Feel free to take advantage of our free kayaks, and canoe; as well as free pier dockage for personal boats.

After a long day of fishing retire to our fish cleaning houses; which our guests tell us are the best in the area! Make sure to take advantage of our beautiful grounds. Relax in comfort with our lawn chairs, picnic tables, campfire pits, and Weber grills. Don’t forget to catch some shade under one of our many large trees. Children can enjoy our playground which includes swings and a sandbox.


Each cottage rental includes one boat in our covered dock. Additional boats and motors are available for rent. Gas and oil are available directly from the dock. Free pier dockage or covered rental dockage available for personal boats. Electric is located at each dock.
