“BEST OF THE MIDWEST”, Midwest Living Magazine.
Ely Minnesota Resorts: Hugging the shoreline of Birch Lake, in the Superior National Forest, just 4 hours from Mpls, 2 hours from Duluth, and only 10 minutes from Ely, the “Naturally Superior” setting of River Point Resort offers what no other “Up North” destination can-a secluded wilderness peninsula, the unspoiled shoreline of 20-mile long Birch Lake and the Kawishiwi River, the amazing million acre Boundary Waters Canoe Area at its doorstep, and a magic all its own.

On the northern and most private half of beautiful Birch, this premier northern Minnesota resorts is a haven far from usual with a fine array of amenities and recreational opportunities, and where lakefront accommodations with screen porches, double whirlpools, and fireplaces are sprinkled along a spectacular mile-long shoreline.

OUTDOOR NEWS, 2017 says: “Birch Lake provides ‘fabulous’ fishing just outside BWCAW”, and River Point Resort is one of the premier Minnesota fishing resorts. Birch Lake boasts top walleye fishing and equally fine numbers of trophy northern pike, feisty smallmouth bass, and slab crappies. Discover the smell of fresh fish at private fish fry in a secluded bay, or “catch and release.” Fishing seminars, guide service, marina, Bait & Tackle Shop, profishing/touring boats, and pontoons are options. Think Ely resorts-Ely, Minnesota resorts-River Point!
