Things To Do

Here, you'll experience a few of life's most rewarding pleasures - freshly caught fish sizzling in a fry pan over the campfire; Dense pine forests with vistas that have remained unchanged for generations; a heaven full of stars.

Your final destination includes one million acres of wilderness and waterways in the heart of the Superior National Forest - the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (BWCAW) the largest wilderness preserve east of the Rocky Mountains. Hiking trails and 1,500-plus miles of water trails! Within a few miles of the resort, there are exceptional hiking trails to explore: Bass Lake, Angleworm and more.
