Spectacular Birch Lake

There are plenty of bays, coves, islands and rocky points on Birch Lake and the South Kawishiwi River to provide you with a lifetime of angling memories. Birch Lake is the largest Ely-area lake outside of the protected Boundary Waters lakes. Birch is 20 miles long, with 90% of its wilderness shoreline being undeveloped federal land. This kind of wilderness seclusion and lack of shoreline development does not exist on any other lake in the Ely area.

Long and narrow, Birch Lake is like a serpentine river-lake, and at all times you can see from one shoreline to the other-easy to navigate with confidence. When the winds kick up a bit, no need to head for shore like you might have to do when fishing on a “round-type” lake-just slide into a cove or inlet and keep on fishing.

Boater’s Paradise

If you are not a fisher- person, know that this amazing waterway is a boater’s paradise. So much undeveloped shoreline to explore, to build a bonfire for roasting marshmallows and hot dogs on a stick, to swim, to berry pick, and so much more. The peacefulness, the lack dozens of other boaters, and simply that feeling of freedom “from all things constraining” is exhilarating!
