Benson is rural, but boasts one of the county's largest resorts, Lapland Lake. Lapland Lake attracts snow-loving visitors from all around the northeast because of it's consistent snow fall and the meticulously groomed trails are great for cross-country skiiing or snowshoeing. Olavi Hirvonen, a former Olympic competitor, and his wife Ann provide a matchless Nordic experience! Even if you're not into braving the cold, their cottages, trails, and waterfront are appealing in the summer and fall as well.
