“Great Resort and Outfitter!” 5 of 5 Stars
“We recently used River Point Resort as our outfitter for 5 days in the Boundary Waters. We spent the night prior to and immediately after our trip at the resort as well, so this covers both the resort facilities and outfitting service.
As an outfitter, River Point supplied us with high end equipment, great food choices, and their personal knowledge about the best lakes for us to go to given our desires for our Boundary Waters vacation. We appreciated their input and tips on what lakes were best for fishing as well as some of the history and characteristics of different lakes. Thanks to River Point, we enjoyed an amazing five days in the Boundary Waters.
After the 5 days in the woods, it was really nice to come back sto the very clean and comfortable Villa we rented for welcome showers, air conditioning, and lots of clean towels. The resort itself is beautiufl, with nice landscaping, two great swimming beaches with floating docks and nice sand which we enjoyed.
In our many interactions with the staff both before our trip and during our time at the resort, we found everyone to be incredibly friendly, knowledgeable, and accommodating. Every interaction we had was positive and genuine, from the friendly welcome and beer with check in (despite the fact that it was just 5 minutes before they closed for the day), to the outfitters who explained our gear and helped us choose a route. Both of our drivers to/from our entrance point were fantaastic – when we were picked up from our time on the lakes – we were hot, sweaty, and desperate for a stop at Dairy Queen for something cold. Not only did the driver happily oblige, he also stopped for us to get a few cold beers to enjoy back at the resort. Awesome service was VERY much appreciated. A big thanks fo Jane, who welcomed us back to civilization by ensuring our Villa was nice and cold with lots of towels upon our return.
I would happily choose River Point again, for outfitting services or for a stay at the beautiful resort, and can’t thank then enough for their knowledge and hospitality while traveling with my family.”
