Our Ely, Minnesota resort offers a variety of recreational pursuits, sure to please everyone in the family; there is always something to do at River Point. Creating lasting memories is something that comes naturally when at our beautiful wilderness peninsula in northern MN with so much water to view and enjoy in every direction from our private peninsula.

Everyone loves time spent at the beach. Since River Point has not one, but two natural sand beaches with all the complimentary small watercraft…paddle boards, sit-on-top kayaks, kid-size playaks for the little ones, age 4-10, and paddle boats, there’s plenty of fun to be had. The playground and adjoining huge grassy play area is a superb place for the kids to run and play games. Adults can enjoy a rousing game of horseshoes while the kids play.

Two favorite “in the water” spots are the floating island rafts; one at the north beach, the other at the south beach. The Aqua Jump raft which is a family favorite gathering spot at this family reunion resorts Minnesota special place even has a slide.

Don’t know how to canoe or kayak? Adults and teens can attend a personalized instructional class and be ready to enjoy the freedom of paddling. Even the little ones can take part with the help of one of the adults. Head out for a boating or fishing excursion. Pontoons are a superb way to cruise the extensive 20 miles of Birch Lake and the South Kawishiwi River. Pull up on the shoreline, and host a fish fry of freshly caught walleye or crappie. Griddles, firewood, and more are available without fee to make this happen. Plus, the camp spots have a fire grate to make it easy to cook over the open fire, and even a latrine. Grandpa is always are willing and ready to help the kids learn how to bait the hook and untangle the lines, which is sure to happen! Another bonus…if it’s blueberry picking time, plan on time to pluck some ripe berries for a fantastic blueberry pancake feed the next morning…Grandma is sure to help out!


For the more serious fisher persons in the family, there is readily available guided boat and motor service on a half day or full day basis. Friendly, knowledgeable guides will put you on the most productive spots to fish and offer sound techniques, along with a lot of fun. Full day guided expeditions by canoe into the adjacent Boundary Waters is something else offered at River Point Resort, a family reunion resorts Minnesota. Focus can be for fishing, but often people just love it to experience an even greater depth of solitude and beauty, when paddling quietly by canoe.

Photographers in the family will love this escape, as well as the many “picture perfect” spots back at the resort to capture images of to capture the photos for the family reunion photo album. Designate a budding young photo enthusiast, as some of the best shots are captured by the children, so give them a camera to experiment with, too. Their unique perspective will be refreshing!


With gas grills readily available, throwing a family BBQ is simple. Some good ole’ potato salad, beans, burgers and maybe a chocolate cake or brownies, it doesn’t get much better, unless there’s fish on the grill, too! Three new fire pits make telling family stories and singing songs that much better. All are lakefront with plenty of fire wood handy. Watching the kids roast marshmallows as the stars begin to come out is great family fun at the lake.


What’s better than taking a hot steam and then cooling down with a jump in the lake. Laughter abounds and families bond together over this simple tradition of lake fun. Unforgettable! A new sauna next to the east marina fire pit is perfect to “steam in”, and then jump in the lake for a quick dip. Don’t feel like “jumping in”, then cool down on the lovely sundeck with a panoramic view to the lake; great for watching others take that plunge.


Sometimes a couple wishes to celebrate their anniversary with family in the wilderness setting at River Point Resort & Outfitting Co.  The Villas are a superb lodging choice for the family members. And, the special anniversary couple might consider a different lodging choice, such as a Chalet of if wanting to stay a full week, The Point or Riverview Vacation Home Cabins are excellent, romantic choices. This works out well for all family members and is ever so relaxing and rejuvenating. Please note: River Point does not host weddings.


Make sure to leave time to do absolutely nothing. Sit in a lawn chair, take a snooze, read a chapter or two from your great book, or just sit and contemplate the wonder of nature around you and your family. “Doing nothing” together just might be the best thing ever.
