Tuscarora Lodge & Canoe Outfitters

Lodge or Resort
Complete or Partial Outfitting for BWCA and Quetico canoe trips.

Greetings from the edge of the BWCA! Tuscarora Lodge & Canoe Outfitters is a full service outfitter that has been offering the best in complete and partial canoe country packages since 1935. We offer a wide range of canoes and quality gear as well as private bunkhouses, hot breakfast, and clean showers. Located on the quiet east end of the Boundary Waters, we service many entry points along the Gunflint Trail. We also service the south eastern entry points into Quetico Provincial Park from our private tow dock on Saganaga Lake. Tuscarora Lodge, Round Lake’s only private property, provides a peaceful setting for guests in our six lakeside housekeeping cabins. Access northern Minnesota’s pristine canoeing, hiking and skiing trails from our resort. Tuscarora is the perfect place to launch your next North Woods vacation whether you prefer deck chairs or canoe seats!

Why choose Tuscarora? Our friendly staff, knowledge of the woods, route planning advice and attention to details all add up to a first class experience. We take the time to orient new explorers to the woods and the gear necessary for an enjoyable first experience. We love to swap stories with seasoned paddlers who share our passion for this unique and beautiful area. Whatever your experience level, Tuscarora can help you plan, prepare and paddle away for your next backcountry canoe trip.

Driving Directions

Tuscarora is located 47 miles up the Gunflint Trail, a two lane paved road that travels through the Superior National Forest. Plan about one hour of travel time after you leave Grand Marais. Have your camera ready and drive carefully since you'll probably come across moose, deer, bear or other critters. We are located on the west/left side of the Gunflint Trail. Turn onto County Road 47/Round Lake Road and travel one more mile. Tuscarora Lodge is the only lodge on Round Lake.
