Overview:

Bearskin Wilderness Outfitters is a small outfitter located on East Bearskin Lake, entry point 64. We are happy to accommodate trips leaving from any Gunflint Trail area entry points, but are especially convenient for groups using the East Bearskin, Crocodile River, Clearwater Lake, and Poplar Lake area entry points.

As a small outfitter we take pride in being able to deal with each group’s personal needs. When we are not working, we are paddling, and we hope that is reflected in the routing and general advice that we give each trip. We strive to keep our equipment top notch, and base most of our gear choices on what we have personally used in the past.

Whether you are interested in full outfitting, gear rental, or just have a question about a lake you might be paddling through, feel free to give us a call at (218) - 388-2292.
We are always willing to talk about canoe trips. Browse our web site at www.bearskinoutfitters.com and take a look at some of the lodging options we have available at www.bearskin.com.
