Hugging the shoreline of Birch Lake, just ten minutes from the quaint town of Ely, Minnesota, the "Naturally Superior" setting of River Point Resort & Outfitting Co. offers what no other Up North destination can...an incredible secluded wilderness peninsula, the unspoiled shoreline of 20 mile-long Birch Lake and the South Kawishwi River, the amazing million acre Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness at its doorstep, and a magic all its own. On the northern and most private half of beautiful Birch Lake, River Point is a haven far from usual with a fine array of amenities and recreational opportunities, and where accommodations and the beautiful Wildwood Lodge are sprinkled along a spectacular shoreline.
