Explore Ely, Minnesota

Ely has always been a distinctly north woods town: first as a mining and logging hub, and today as the gateway to the western BWCAW. Ely is bustling in the summertime with some 160,000 visitors a year! The 25 BWCAW entry points lining the Echo Trail and Fernberg Road access all kinds of routes, from the long portage into Angleworm to the long paddle across Lac la Croix. Whether you’re after a fishing license, a cold milkshake or a visit with a wolf, Ely has abundant resources for before and after your canoe trip.

Canoe Country Outfitters
Paddle and portage from lake-to-lake and explore the same routes that the Chippewa Indians and French-Canadian Voyageurs traveled years ago. Offering camping and fishing trips, we offer the very best in food supplies, canoes, and camping equipment rentals for a safe, exciting and memorable time. Offering quality canoe trips since 1946!
