A northwoods style General Store accessible by lake or by road, Moosebirds also provides a Lake House Rental, a seasonal campground and boat rentals. Ask anyone, the Moosebirds General Store is famous for awesome ice cream cones! And that’s not all – shop Moosebirds for the best selection of fun t-shirts and sweatshirts on Lake Vermilion for the whole family! If you are looking for a special gift, Moosebirds has a lot of different northwoods style lake souvenirs plus a grocery department where you’ll find milk, eggs, bread, crackers, soups, freezer bags and many more items you just might need.

Then, for stop by Moosebirds before fishing Lake Vermilion to pick up live bait – minnows, crawlers or the tackle that seems to be working on the lake – you’ll find fishing maps, bug spray, rods and reels, life jackets, ropes and just about anything you may need for enjoying your time at the lake. How about a place like this?

You’ll meet some of the nicest people at Moosebirds – it is the kind of place where neighbors and old friends meet. But Moosebirds is more than the lakeside general store that has become a Lake Vermilion destination. So stop by Moosebirds – Where everybirdie is welcome!

Wings and Things Fundraiser

To help celebrate Cook’s Friends of the Parks annual fundraiser, Wings and Things, Moosebirds will be open April 29th from 9am until 6pm JUST for this special event! Moosebirds will also donate back $1.00 for each ice cream cone sold that day.

What is a Moosebird anyway?

Lumberjacks of the past would call the grey Canadian Jay a “Moosebird” as these lovable birds would be seen riding on the antlers of moose in the woods causing the lumberjacks to take notice of them. A Moosebird is a friendly northern bird which welcomes and enjoys the company of others. Sometimes called a camp robber, the Canadian Jay will actually eat out of your hand. So stop by Moosebirds where everybirdie is welcome, and keep an eye out for one of our namesakes… real or imaginary.
