Boat Rentals

Gunflint Lake is a perfect lake to rent a boat and motor and go exploring. There are waterfalls that you can visit, islands to stop at for a lunch break, sandy beaches to play at, and of course there are many fishing holes waiting to be discovered. If you bring your own boat and motor you have a complimentary slip at the dock with a stay at the resort.

Free Fishing Fun For Kids

As a complementary activity for overnight lodge guests, our guides will take your children (5 to 12 years old) out for a two-hour fishing excursion on Gunflint Lake. We’ll gear them up with bait and tackle and take them to some of our favorite spots for a first-time fishing experience they won’t forget. If your child catches a keeper, we can even bring it back, teach your child how to clean and fillet it, and bring it back to you to have for dinner! This activity is complimentary for all our youngest Gunflint Guests, based on availability. Sign up in advance with Guest Services
