Sleep on the edge of the Boundary Waters in one of Tuscarora Lodge's six modern housekeeping cabins. Located 47 miles up the historic Gunflint Trail, Tuscarora's cabins all overlooked Round Lake, a 72-acre lake noted for its walleye, pike, and bass fishing. Tuscarora's location provides easy access to some of the most remote areas in Minnesota-Canadian Wilderness, whether you want to paddle, hike, or simply sit on your deck and soak up the view.
Each cabin features complete bathroom facilities and fully equipped kitchens. Our cabins range from cozy two bedroom rentals to large rentals with enough living space to accommodate family reunions or company retreats. With a plethora of hiking trails and canoe routes nearby, our cabins are perfect for independent adventurers who want to explore the Northwoods at their own pace or families and friends wanting to reconnect in the peace and beauty of northeastern Minnesota. Please see our website for complete cabin information and rates – www.tuscaroracanoe.com
In addition to offering cabin rentals, Tuscarora Lodge and Canoe Outfitters is a full service canoe outfitter for Boundary Waters and Quetico canoe trips. Nine private bunkhouses, with access to the shower house, are available for paddlers looking for accommodations on the night before or after their canoe trips. An all-you-can-eat French toast breakfast (by reservation only) is served every morning in our dining hall from May 1 - September 30th. Our location provides easy access to some of the most remote areas in Minnesota-Canadian Wilderness. Begin your wilderness canoe adventure from our docks on Round or Saganaga Lakes, or any of several entry points nearby.
Our canoe country knowledge comes from a lifetime working, living, and recreating along the Gunflint Trail and we love working with you to create your perfect canoe trip. We can walk you through the countless BWCAW/Quetico route options and provide firsthand insight. We take pride in listening carefully to your needs and helping shape a Boundary Waters trip that's just right for you. When you call, we’ll discuss how many miles you hope to paddle each day, if you prefer large or small waters, if you’ll be fishing, if you’ll be traveling with kids, if you’re hoping to spot any specific wildlife or wildflowers, and any other special requirements you have for your trip.
We know you want the latest in ultra light gear. We stay on top of industry trends and outfit you with the cleanest and best maintained gear in the BWCAW. Whether you’re a canoe country newbie without any camping equipment of your own or you’re a Boundary Waters veteran who just needs a canoe, we’ve got you covered.
Get an early start to your trip by staying overnight in one of our private bunkhouses the night before your trip. These simple accommodations provide you with a clean, quiet place to make your final packing decisions and prepare to embark.
We serve our famous French toast breakfast (by reservation only) in our dining hall every morning from May 1 – September 30. You won’t want to skip this Tuscarora tradition before you start your trip.
Our motorized tow service gives you a head start and saves you approximately six hours of paddling across Saganaga Lake. If you’re headed into Quetico Provincal Park, our tow service can get you to the Canadian Ranger Station first thing in the morning.
You will find excellent fishing in this region. We have lake trout, walleyes, northern pike and bass. We carry a full line of fishing tackle. We’ll advise you on recommended fishing areas as well as the types of lures needed.
