Ely Canoe Rentals, Kayaking, and More

Boat, Fish, and Explore Shagawa Lake

When you stay at our resort, you will enjoy easy access to Shagawa Lake from our Ely marina with two 60 ft. docks. Spend a couple of hours exploring the south side of the lake with family-friendly Ely canoe rentals, kayaks and paddle boats or rent one of our deluxe watercraft for an all-day experience on the lake. Bring your rod and reel along or use one of ours for a free two-hour rental to drop a line into one of Minnesota’s best fishing lakes. If you are looking for a guided Minnesota fishing experience, contact Jim the fish guy, our local fishing expert for details.
