Christmas Cove to light up campground

By Jordan Parker
With the ghouls and ghosts hidden away until next October, Gull Lake is getting into the Christmas spirit.

They began their third annual Christmas Cove on Nov. 1, and registration for spots has begun.

Gull Lake’s Recreation Director Sara Kuntz says the town “chatted about doing the event in the park” three years ago, but someone in the tourism department said the campground might be perfect.

Gull Lake Campground has been the site for the past two years, which brought in 15 and 19 participants, respectively. Kuntz is hoping to see more growth for the current iteration.

“There are 33 sites, and people have the chance to scout things out and find their perfect spot,” she said.

It’s a chance for people in town to get involved and really spread Christmas cheer throughout the close-knit little community.

“People can find spots and decorate how they want. You can register as an individual, with friends, or as a business or service group.  You can just do whatever you want at your spot,” said Kuntz.

“You can just drive in, cruise around, and check out the lights. It’s really cool.”  During the doldrums of the cold winter season in Gull Lake, Christmas Cove provides a much-needed boost of enthusiasm.

“It’s an activity for winter. Winters are cold and gross here. Christmas Cove is a way to enjoy the weather, and enjoy what the
weather brings.”

Sites are $20 each and registration is open. There is a limit of two sites per entry.  Each team is responsible for the planning,
funding and setting up of the displays, as well as the takedown after.
Contact Sara Kuntz at the Rec Office at 306-672-4449 with questions or to book a spot. You can also email
