What you can expect
SUNRISE ON CEDAR LAKE
We highly recommend that you spend the night before your canoe trip at our Cedar Lake Base, which is located just seven miles outside of Ely. The experience is a breathtaking, beautiful introduction to the wilderness that awaits all adventurers who take the boat to our road-less wilderness home.
*You will need to call us upon your arrival to Ely so that we can direct you to our Cedar Lake parking area and arrange a pick up time to "boat you across the lake".
