    Decent Budget Motel

    by

    I liked the look of this hotel from the outside, partly because I am a sucker for wooden buildings. The inside was okay, a few things showed signs of wear, but not bad in general. There were a few nice touches in the room like a small refrigerator and a microwave. The staff was nice and the price was okay. I would stay here again.

Lodge of Whispering Pines

by linwoods

I would love to hear from anyone who has spent time at this Lodge, particularly in the summer months. A small group of us will be going North for vacation instead of coastal. At the risk of sounding like a tourist...will we feel like we are truly in the deep wilderness? We have been to Canada and it was great! How does Ely compare?

It's interesting that this was the latest post in the North American forums (when I checked), considering I live just about an hour and a half or two south of Ely.

I've never been to the lodge (and only to Ely once just to see what the town was like, a few months ago), but the general Ely area is very forested / scenic / in the boon docks. If it's in the area, you'll almost surely feel like you're in "nature", simply because that's about all that's up there in that corner of the state.

Travel Tips for Ely

While in the BWCA/Quetico, break camp early

by DSwede

Take an experienced man's advice and weigh anchor "early". You will be able to get the majority of your day's itinerary done while the lakes are still calm without the afternoon winds, and the heat of the day will not bake you.

That way you can make camp leisurely after lunch, before all the other campers have taken everything. And it will give you some afternoon hours to swim/hike/fish without the pressure to make camp in the dark.

Check out the Wintergreen...

by sverige

Check out the Wintergreen coats & Steiger Mukluks....made right here in Ely!! If you need to stay warm, buy these!! The air is SO clean smelling, you can really tell a differece. The lakes are so clear...it is the last frontier.

Finnish Sauna

by sketchyhand

The transition between a 180 F sauna and a hole cut into a frozen lake is an undescribable experience. This is a picture of the sauna building at camp Menogyn. Shortly after this was taken we ran out of those doors and into the 32 degree water.

Bug Spray!!!!!

by NateWill22

When I was there in early June, the only bad insects were ticks and flies. But that was bad enough! And I can't imagine what it would be like in July and August with all of those mosquitos!!! So be sure to have bug repellent!

Ely - Stepping stone for BWCA and Quetico

by DSwede

What a pristine piece of land!! Both the Boundary Waters Park of northern Minnesota and Quetico Park of Ontario (Quetico & BWCA)

Simply wonderful!! You can go by foot in someplaces, but if you do, you'll have to carry your canoe/kyak on your shoulders, since this park (probably larger than Switzerland) is full of thousands of lakes, streams and waterways.

When I went here originally, the US/Canadian immigration was done in a shed on an island in the middle of the lake. In more recent times, you can pre-clear and get all your permits by mail prior to rowing out. Its on your own honor for permits and fees, but if you are found by a patrolling ranger without proper papers, it is quite a hassle.

You should take the wise advise of bringing enough food for your trip, regardless if you plan to fish or not, because sometimes the fish are not biting.

Also, I've been stuck up there in freak hail storms and thunder, so even in the middle of the summer, bring some cool weather clothes.

The mosquitos dont like the heat of the day, nor the cool of the night. The love the sunset and dusk. Bring proper measures for them as well, but if you take a short nap to refresh from a long day, by the time you awake for dinner, they mosquitoes will have dissipated some.
