Complete BWCA outfitting and canoe rentals for 85 years by the Kerfoot family
Here we are, heading in BWCA 2014 with the snows deep and the lakes covered with thick ice.
We are enjoying the crackling fire in our fireplaces as our thoughts turn to the upcoming summer
and the paddling season. At the moment is appears that we will have an abundance of snow this
winter which will lead to good spring water levels on all our lakes and rivers.
The fishing season opens May 10th this year and that gets the spring started. The lake trout will
be hungry in some of our back country lakes like Little Saganaga, Gabimichigami, Tuscarora,
Peter, and French. In addition, a base camp on South Lake is another way to enjoy some suberb
spring trout fishing. Other lakes have good walleye and smallmouth bass so there are many options
for a spring fishing trip.
Canoe trip permits are now available from the USFS, so if you have trip dates on your calendar
already, we can start to work with you in getting a permit reserved for you.
We have an exciting announcement--we are the exclusive outfitter for Camp Chow foods, a new line
of very tasty dehydrated and dried food that is being made locally. We are incorporating many of their
meals in our menu and they have some of the tastiest foods we have ever sampled.
One of our featured canoe trip packages
A 5 day BWCA Canoe Trip Package
A great trip for a group of adult friends, or a father- son canoe trip
Fathers and sons repeatedly say to us that their canoe trips have been the highlights of
their time together. They get to share some undivided time with each other and those
moments seem to be rare at home, between electronics, jobs, friends, activities, school, etc.
Here the big challenge might be who can catch the biggest fish for dinner, or who can see a moose
first. Then after dinner you sit around the campfire and have some quality time together, with
nothing to disturb the thoughts of the moment.
This package includes your first night in a bunkhouse here at Gunflint so you have time to do your route planning with us,
get your travel permit, and do your final repacking. A big tasty dinner is also included that first night in the main lodge.
Then you head out on a 4 night/5 day canoe trip into the BWCA, with a custom planned route that we have mutually worked out.
Upon your returjn you are welcome to a complimentary overnight in a bunkhouse if you want to clean up and get a good nights
sleep before you head home in the morning.
5 day/4 night Package $529.00 per person
Your wilderness permit and the sales tax is additional
