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. 

All our guests can enjoy FREE use of canoes, kayaks, paddle boats, paddle boards, hydro-bike. Our Marina Attendants will be happy to assist our guests at the marina.
