About River Point Resort & Outfitting Co.

Premier Minnesota Resort
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 & Outfitting Co., a premier Minnesota 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.

Finest Ely Minnesota Resort

On the northern and most private half of beautiful Birch Lake, this premier Ely, Minnesota resort and cabin rentals destination is a haven far from usual with a fine array of amenities and recreational opportunities for families and where lakefront accommodations with screen porches, double whirlpools, and fireplaces are sprinkled along a spectacular mile-long shoreline. Perfect for a family getaway and also perfect for a special romantic honeymoon or anniversary celebration for two.

Minnesota Fishing Resorts

One of the top walleye lakes, Birch Lake boasts equally fine numbers of trophy northern pike, feisty small mouth bass, and slab crappies. Discover the smell of fresh fish at private fish fry in a secluded bay, or “catch and release.” Also offered are fishing seminars, guide service, a marina, with a Bait & Tackle Shop, pro fishing boats with 50-75 hp motors, and pontoon boats.
