As part of Kawishiwi Lodge, Lake One Outfitters offers convenient and affordable access to some of the best canoe routes the Boundary Waters has to offer. Lake One Outfitters is located right on 876 acre, Lake One. There is nothing more convenient than parking your car, picking up your permit, staying in a cabin or bunkhouse, and launching your canoe at the crack of dawn without the hassle of loading or unloading gear and canoes.

At Lake One Outfitters, we offers complete and partial outfitting. We are conveniently located on Lake One but offer shuttles to a number of popular entry points. Being connected to a lodge, we also provide those who wish to stay in a cabin the opportunity to take day trips into the boundary waters to experience the fishing and wildlife this unique environment has to offer.

We are located 18 miles East of Ely on Fernberg Road.
