I've stayed at many resorts in the area over the past 20 years and Aspen Resort is without a doubt my favorite destination. The accommodations are great and the staff is truly second to none. If you are looking for a peaceful resort with great fishing look no further.

A beautiful and peaceful family resort with lots to offer! Minnow races, ice cream Sundays, Smores nights to name a few. Great pool and hot tub, boat rentals, kayaking/canoeing and out door basketball/volleyball/badminton courts. Plus the fish are always biting!

Had a wonderful week here. The staff was extremely courteous and friendly. They have great rental boats to take out and fish in and also their own bait shop and store. Plenty of things to do even if it rains! Definitely can't wait to go back. Already planning another trip this year!

We selected Aspen based on the Trip Adviser reviews. Quite frankly, I'm not sure what others have seen in this place to give them a 5. I had two main issues. First, Ray, the owner. He wasn't very accommodating and in my couple of interactions with him, I thought he was kinda rude. For example, we rented a boat for...
