Where Guests Become

Lifelong Friends

About Us

Rooney Family

Originally from the western suburbs of Chicago, Pat and Rhonda Rooney have been guests of Denny's Resort since they began dating in the 1980s. Even before that, Pat fished Lake Winnie with his family every year throughout his youth. Pat and Rhonda have three daughters, Sarah, Lindsay and Kaylee.


Fishing Camp

Although primarily a fishing camp, our resort also makes comfortable accommodations to hunters and other outdoors enthusiasts. We have ten cabins. We rent fishing boats in the summer and have ice fishing houses for rent in the winter months. Here are several services and amenities we offer:

  • Cabin Rental with satellite television and AC for the summer months

  • Ice fishing house rental, RV hookups

  • Comfortable lodge with full bar, limited groceries and game room

  • Protected harbor with boat slips, boat launch, fishing opportunities for kids

  • Playground and outdoor activities

  • Fishing launches for groups, private guide service

  • Bait, fish cleaning house and fish cleaning/packaging service

  • Fishing advice, tips and tricks

  • Great fishing opportunities for those that love to fish or those that wish to learn


Our cabins are simple and designed to be comfortable. They contain all that you would expect when looking for an authentic fishing or hunting experience. Of course, if your cabin doesn't have something you expected, please let us know and we will do our best to help you.


Our Promise

Our goal is to provide a completely convenient experience and access to some of the best fishing in the state. Our promise is to treat each guest with the level of kindness, courtesy and helpfulness to make your overall fishing or hunting experience memorable. Even more, we're committed to creating an environment "where guests become lifelong friends."
