At this premier Minnesota resort deep within the tranquil wooded beauty and clean, fresh waters of the Superior National Forest, lies one of the finest Ely Minnesota resorts with cabin rentals and great fishing located where the Kawishiwi River joins Birch Lake at the doorstep of the famous Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness.

River Point Resort & Outfitting Co. – Minnesota Resorts – Ely

One of the finest Minnesota Resorts…Hugging the shoreline of beautiful Birch Lake, just 4 hours from Minneapolis/St. Paul, MN, 1 hour inland from the North Shore of Lake Superior and the city of Two Harbors, and 10 minutes from the quaint town of Ely, 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, a direct paddle to the amazing million acre Boundary Waters, and a magic all its own.

DARK SKY MOVEMENT

Marvel at the  incredible beauty of our Northern Minnesota night sky at River Point. With an effort to share the amazing star lit sky above by reducing the effects of too many lights, guests enjoy staring upward at the “wilderness above us” and discovering constellations, the moon, planets, and stars….sky sights almost every night for the unaided eye.  A recent study said that “humanity has enveloped our planet in a luminous fog that prevents most of Earth’s population from having the opportunity to observe our galaxy…” Here at River Point Resort’s, unique wilderness peninsula, you’ll have the chance to successfully gaze upward, observe, and cherish the night sky.
