If you love quiet peaceful nights under the stars then get ready to do some secluded camping next to the river. We provide a small boat for anyone that might want to take a ride on the gentle waters. The campsite is primitive but the experience that comes with it is nothing less than fantastic. Wildlife of all sorts and tons of stuff to experience in the area. From Giants ridge to BWCA, Ely shops and the Fortune bay casino, theres always something to check out no matter what the weather!

Couldn’t stay there.

Unfortunately we didn’t get to stay there. The host kindly mowed the weeds to define a parking spot and we’re communicative. The parking area could fit one car but we didn’t have a car, we have a truck. The campsite could maybe fit a two person tent, although not level. We didn’t have a two person tent, it fits 4. It was also on the across from a wet area so the bugs were bad. We paid for a site we couldn’t use, luckily we found a free dispersed site. I hope the site owner will make a more accurate description of the the site is.

Prime northwood location

This is a really nice, private, no-frills site tucked away in a prime northwoods location: less than 20 minutes from Lake Vermillion, 40 minutes from the Iron Range OHVRA, 40 min from Ely, and about 90 minutes from Lake Superior.

Hosts are very kind, respectful, and accommodating.

Site is about a 3-minute walk from the lovely Pike River (could easily launch a canoe/kayak).

Includes a picnic table, fire-pit (bring your own cooking grate), rough tent pad, and a couple of good hammock spots. Lots of downed wood for small campfires. There is a large, grassy area near the campsite where one could park a trailer or RV and a couple of vehicles.

Very dog-friendly (no adjacent campers, no busy roads).

No Latrine and no potable water onsite (no problem - just plan accordingly).
