My wife and I recently spent a wonderful week at River Point in mid-Sept, 2016, and it was pretty much perfect (it usually is). The weather was great, fishing was quite good, and the accommodations were really spectacular. We tried a "cabin" we had never tried before....soaring ceilings, nearly all glass walls facing the lake / river, everything new or... More

This was the 7th trip we have taken to Riverpoint and we have never been disappointed. The cabin we stay in, has this gorgeous view of the lake and is very convenient for our boat. This time we brought along our whole family. The town of Ely has many things to keep little ones busy when we're not fishing. We... More

Wow. This place is wonderful. Very nice accommodations, very friendly and helpful staff, and the location is simply gorgeous. We did have some noisy neighbors one night, but overall it was quiet and peaceful, and except for some rainy days, it was just about perfect. I will definitely try to come again!

River Point is a very special place. I have been going there since the mid 1980's and the only bad thing I can say is I hate to leave. Every time I go back, Steve and Jane have built a new "masterpiece". Its like artwork! I have had my own business for 35 years and I can see how much... More

Excellent facilities, clean, well kept. Owner/managers very accommodating. The cabins with three bedrooms are large but one of the bedrooms is smallish. Renting towels is unexpected if you are coming from afar; it's not like a hotel. You bring your own provisions (and towels). Luckily, we started are trip at a friend's home in Mpls and brought towels. The kitchen... More

I have used River Point Resort to outfit 3 different paddle trips into the BWCA. Each year, Jane and Steve (owners), remember me by name and the details of my previous trips. They take all the stress out of planning your paddle trip and the equipment they outfit you with is top notch and of high quality. The staff are... More

We wanted to experience the BWCA. River Point offered a three day stay at the resort and then would outfit us for a two day one night camping-canoe trip in the BWCA. Upon arrival we found the grounds to be beautiful. The resort was right on the river with views of both the sunrise and sunset. There were three bonfire... More

My wife and I wanted to spend a week at a cabin in northern Minnesota, but didn’t have any place in mind. So I took to the internet and started my search…know I wanted something in the Ely area, near the Boundary Waters. I visited many websites for resorts in the area. While their website wasn’t the easiest to use,... More
