Sometimes you can’t escape for longer than an overnight. Sometimes you want to go canoe camping but you have to be at work the next day. But… you haven’t been in the woods overnight forever. And… Summer is escaping. You feel the need to cook over an open flame, to sit next to some coals and do some thinking that can only be done when woodsmoke is involved.
Sometimes you have to hang your hammock from trees that aren’t in the back yard or the park and spend (even if it is only a few hours) some quality time with friends.
There’s more in the cooking pot than just a freeze dried or dehydrated meal. There’s friendship, rejuvenation, and yes, stress relief. For us it can’t be beat, even if it’s just overnight, even if we find ourselves camping outside the wilderness for just one night. We want you to have a taste of what we do here all Summer in Ely, Minnesota.

Getting on the water is the first step. This is also true for people who find themselves in Ely, Minnesota and want to get a feel for canoe camping but may not have time for an extended Boundary Waters trip or, if it is during peak season, cannot find the right permit. There are some forest service campgrounds outside the BWCAW on local lakes and rivers that are beautiful places to get away.
This film is a compilation of some footage that Simon shot to use for future outfitting films and catalog product videos that we are currently working on. If you’ve been thinking of exploring the beautiful wilderness country around Ely, Minnesota, we hope this gives you a taste of canoe camping that will wet your appetite for more.
We like to give our outfitting clients options, however, what we like more than anything is for you to love our big backyard as much as we do. To discover a passion for Wilderness and the need to protect it.
Feel free to call our Outfitting Managers Drew Brockett and Adam Macht for all of your canoe camping needs including canoe rentals, gear rentals, full canoe trip outfitting and guided group trips at 1-800-223-6565 or online here.
The canoe in this video is a 3-person Seneca by Wenonah. We took it on this overnight because it makes a stable platform for filming and fishing and fun. You can see the details here.
