Who is Boundary Waters Outfitters? We are a full-service canoe trip outfitter in Ely, Minnesota who prides ourselves on high quality gear, food and above all customer service.
Boundary Waters Outfitters (formerly Timber Trail Outfitters) has been sending people into the wilderness area now known as the Boundary Waters since 1939. Our lakeside resort is located right on the edge of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area and is an ideal place to begin your wilderness adventure.
Having canoed, camped and fished the vast majority of Minnesota's Boundary Waters and Canada's Quetico Park we are well equipped to guide you through planning your wilderness canoe trip. Ely and the Boundary Waters is where we make our home; we are passionate about what we do and hope to be able to share our experiences and knowledge with you when visiting this magnificent place. The Boundary Waters Canoe Area...see it for yourself...the wilderness is waiting.
We also have a full-service lakeside resort - Timber Trail Lodge. Boundary Waters Outfitters and Timber Trail Lodge are located seven miles outside of Ely, Minnesota on a chain of four interconnected lakes. The resort offers lakeside cabins ranging from one to six bedrooms in size. Across from the main lodge is our canoe outfitting headquarters where we plan, pack and assist customers heading into the wilderness.
Our resort and outfitting facility is one of the best in the area and has been featured in multiple newspapers, magazines and television shows. The most recent is happening this year on PBS who is filming a documentary series on Adventure Lodges of North America.
For a true wilderness experience you will remember for years to come plan your next vacation with Boundary Waters Outfitters and Timber Trail Lodge. We are here to help you make the most of your Northwoods experience.
