Rockwood Outfitters provides complete, partial and day trip
outfitting services for the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness.
Rockwood is located on Poplar Lake with direct entry points to some
of the best moose territory in the entire BWCA. There are great
routes available for beginners and for those looking for a challenge.

At Rockwood, we realize that every party has different wants and
needs on a canoe trip. Whether you are a beginner or have taken
many canoe trips, our goal is to make your trip the best vacation
ever. We'll work with you to plan a route that meets your needs.

Our central location makes it easy for us to provide access into some
of the most remote areas of BWCA and trips from all entry points of
the Gunflint Trail as well as Quetico routes. We specialize in ultra-
lightweight equipment and canoes to save you weight and bulk in
portaging. We offer aluminum, Royalex, and Kevlar canoes. The
superior quality of our gear provides comfort while meeting the
demands of canoe camping.

Many people appreciate the convenience of ending their trip at
Rockwood Lodge where your car and our shower house are ready
and waiting. Of course, we also offer transport to and from all the
entry points off the Gunflint Trail.

When you start planning your next canoeing vacation in the BWCA,
call or e-mail Rockwood Outfitters. We're here to help you plan the
perfect trip.
