    If you are planning on arriving late in the evening to our resort, please remember most stores, for example, our local Blackduck grocery store may be closed to purchase groceries for a late bite to eat. Countryside Family Restaurant in Blackduck usually close at 9pm. 

    The only type of food you can buy for late night supper, can be found at the Timberline Sports "N" Convenient store/Shell Gas station at 218-835-4636. Examples of prepared food at Timberline; take out pizza's, sub sandwiches and convenient groceries. Please pay close attention to their hours of business.

    See Area Activities page for store information. We do have a few basic groceries for sale in our office, but nothing perishable to make for meals.
