Picture of a camping vacation campsite.

Our rustic cabins make a great base camp for day trips out into the wilderness.

If you would like to make Gunflint your base, staying in one of our rustic cabins with hot showers nearby, and taking day trips out into the wilderness, this might be just the canoe country package for you. We will plan your day’s adventures with you and transport you to and from the put in point of your daily adventure. In addition, we have a variety of hiking trails that you might also enjoy. You are welcome to cook your own meals in our pavilion, or treat yourself to a meal in our Red Paddle Bistro or Justine’s Fine Dining at Gunflint Lodge. We also have daily guided naturalist activities and you are welcome to join in them as well.

Includes: Rustic canoer cabin accommodations, Royalex canoes, naturalist activities, hot showers, hiking trails, and car parking. You provide your own bedding.

Canoe trip tips...

Canoe with packs on a canoe country vacation

There are more than 1,200 canoe routes in the Boundary Waters area.

  • Be ready to get wet, especially your feet. Be sure to have extra shoes and socks when you return to your campsite. It’s a good idea to dress in layers so you’ll be prepared for changes in temperature.

  • If you take snacks along on your canoe trip, make sure they are in a watertight containers and are fastened to the canoe.

  • Don’t overload the canoe — an overloaded or awkwardly packed canoe can easily capsize.
