Things To Do

Spending a week in the surf and sun at the edge of White Iron Lake is relaxing, rejuvenating and fun for resort guests of any age. It’s especially exciting for anyone who likes to cast a line into clear water and pull out a trophy-worthy walleye. The waters of White Iron are plentiful, routinely offering up walleye, bass, crappie and northern pike. Make the most of the location by taking advantage of onsite rentals for pontoons and motor boats — as well as complimentary canoes.

Guests can explore the large recreation lake — which connects to a long an scenic chain of lakes — in canoes or kayaks, or swim, splash and wade from the sandy beach area at White Iron Beach Resort. Other resort amenities include boat docks, a children’s play area, a sauna, a game room, volleyball and basketball courts, and weekly marshmallow roasts around the fire.

Venture out into the surrounding wilderness areas for hiking and biking along numerous beautiful and well-maintained nature trails. The area surrounding the tourist town of Ely, MN (home to unique local shops, entertainments and dining spots) is also home to the Superior National Forest, the International Wolf Center and the Tower-Soudan Underground Mine.

Beautiful, friendly, clean. — Benita P.
WIBR is absolutely beautiful. We found it this year and have been back a couple of times and have another trip planned for August. We LOVE it here. The cabins are very nice and updated, the beach is the best one we have found, the kids love the playground, and Sandy and Kerry are wonderful people. We can’t wait to make more memories here. — Kurston D.
Beautiful setting. Very well maintained resort. Charming, clean, comfortable cabins with great views. Hosts are always ready to help. All the amenities you could ask for. The Lodge adds a lot. Seems to attract nice people and friendly dogs. We have found our favorite place in Ely. We will be back as often as we can. — Linda L.
The pontoon boat rental was reasonably priced and we were able to catch some nice fish from it. The owners were available throughout our stay and were more than accommodating. I didn't walk the grounds much, but it seemed that most(if not all) the cabins were within 75 yards of the water. I would highly recommended WIBR to anyone looking for a great place to escape near Ely. — Jeremy G.
Always love bringing the family to White Iron Beach Resort! Kerry and Sandy's hospitality is fantastic. This year we brought our dog and she had a blast too! Great place to get away from the hustle and bustle for the city life and just relax. Can't wait to go back next year. — Tori E.
My husband and I absolutely love it here. The people of Ely are so friendly and accommodating. Kerry and Sandy you are absolutely the best people in the world. We have been coming up here for more than 20 years and never had a bad time. Recommend this place to anybody who really wants to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city from the hustle and bustle of the city. Or a romantic getaway. — LaVerne B.
We had the BEST time. First visit to northern Minnesota for my grandkids and son in law, they loved it all. The last night of our visit we went to the beach and looked a sky full of stars. We loved that the kids could borrow games,shoot pool, and listen to music by the campfire. Cabin was great for our large family, the resort owners were very nice, and very helpful. We really enjoyed our stay. — Dawn H.
Just one week ago, we were relaxing at White Iron Beach Resort, and we definitely miss it already! The resort and the surrounding area are simply gorgeous. The cabin was very well kept, with plenty of space. Sandy and Kerry provided everything we needed for a fun and comfortable stay. This is a wonderful choice for families, large or small, and we felt right at home very quickly. Thank you WIBR! — Emily W.
