Hillcrest Resort

Big Sandy Lake, McGregor Minnesota

Welcome!

Hillcrest Resort is located just two hours north of the Twin Cities on the shores of Big Sandy Lake. Hillcrest resort offers a wonderful place for families to come and enjoy. With 7 cabins to stay in we offer a much smaller feel then many of the remaining resorts in our area. We offer gas on the lake so you can refuel without pulling your boat in and out to go to the gas station and interrupt the fun times you are having on the lake. When it comes time to refuel your body we also offer food and drinks in our restaurant and bar. We hope the next vacation you plan you consider us for your great Minnesota getaway!

Hillcrest offers something for everyone looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. You can come stay for a night, a week or just stop in for a bite to eat. Our beautiful beach offers a place to lounge in the sun and relax or build your favorite sandcastle! Fire rings around the premises offer a great way to enjoy the evening and catch a terrific view of our summer sunsets. Big Sandy Lake offers a large area for water based recreation. 


Wildlife is abundant and you can be sure to see many ducks, loons, and other water loving creatures during your stay. Taking a relaxing stroll down the road you will be sure to come across many woodland creatures as well.

Local hot spots for hunting and fishing are easily accessible from Hillcrest and our staff will be more then happy to try and guide you to those places. All we ask in return is for some great fish stories!

During all this excitement you may get hungry and thirsty as well. We have you covered with a full restaurant and bar. We offer a menu catered to the entire family yet kept simple.

Last but not least is somewhere to lay your head down at night and get some rest. Our cabins at Hillcrest can best be described as rustic. We have 7 cabins available for lodging year round. The cabins vary in range from one bedroom to three bedroom, with every one having its own furnished kitchen. There is no tv in the cabins but Wi-Fi is accessible to all of our guests.
