Overview:

We are a "small by choice" BWCA canoe trip outfitter and
resort specializing in wilderness high adventure into the
Minnesota Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. Our
Boundary Waters canoe trips include fishing, camping,
hiking, birding and wildlife photography.
Fishing for smallmouth bass, walleye, northern pike, and
lake trout in the BWCA is a special experience. We
personally plan unique trips for couples, families, friends,
fishermen, youth and Scout groups.

Clearwater
Canoe Outfitters and Lodge is located mid-point the Gunflint
Trail, just a mile south of the historic Voyageur Canoe
Route, which created the boundary between the U.S. and
Canada. BWCA boundaries include most of 7 mile long
Clearwater Lake, whose majestic palisades are visible from
our dock. This more remote eastern section of the wilderness
is a particularly scenic one, filled with spectacular
bluffs, falls, and crystal-clear waters. Clearwater Lake is
a designated entry point into the BWCA.
