Overview:

"Providing BWCA Wilderness Vacations to Adventurous People."

We are a small, family owned Ely, MN resort and BWCA wilderness outfitter on Fenske Lake located just off the scenic Echo Trail north of Ely, MN. We are the closest outfitter to the Mudro entry point.

Our equipment is lightweight, comfortable and efficient. We specialize in partial outfitting for those who just need a canoe or that piece of equipment they don't have or forgot.

We are located on the western side of the Boundary Waters. This side lends itself to smaller sized lakes and rivers
lined with scenic overlooks, waterfalls, abundance of wildlife and spectacular fishing. Whether you are a seasoned fisherman or a first time explorer who just wants to lay back, we are certain you will enjoy what this side of the BWCA wilderness has to offer.
