Playground fun at River Point Outfitting Co. and Resort

Consider a family fishing and camping trip right on Birch Lake in Ely, Minnesota! 100 miles of wilderness shoreline on this Ely, Minnesota lake with 90% of it being undeveloped federal land. So private and no portages to make -- a bonus for the family with young children who "can't carry their own pack"

No permit/user fees required to camp overnight on Birch Lake. Remember, when planning family canoe trips...

River Point Resort amenities and outdoor activities are available for your family to enjoy FREE of charge before and after your canoe trip.

River Point has two natural sand beaches with complimentary one and two-person kayaks and paddle boats to have a blast with at the beaches. There is also a swim-to raft and an Aqua Jump Swim Raft. So much for the family to do before the Boundary Waters canoe trip adventure.

Great playground for the kids, private mile long hiking trail, Wolf Den Gift Shop, and friendly, caring staff to help you out with everything from instructional canoeing classes for your family to teaching you how to fish.
