Clothing

Clothing layers are the key to a comfortable trip to North Haven Resort. The morning boat ride on Utik Lake can be chilly, so dress warm in the morning and remove the layers as needed as the day goes on.  Layer suggestions would be T-shirt, then a quick dry long sleeve fishing shirt, then a sweatshirt (and warm jacket if needed) along with quick dry fishing pants.

Always plan to have your rain gear on hand in the boat since there can be popup rain showers or spray from the boat as you ride around the lake. If you forget anything, don’t worry, all of these items are stocked and sold at our North Haven Resort store.
