Jolietvilletraveler Says: International Wolf Center has 6 adult wolves. There are large windows to view them through. Information available on "who they are" & their stories. Film in the theatre & programs in the ampitheatre at different times. They have an area under construction during 2009, so...
Jolietvilletraveler Says: Probably the most popular local restaurant. Has pool tables (somewhere, we didn't see) and specials different nights. Locals speak highly of it. Staff was a little disjointed when we arrived & we had to wait several minutes for anyone to notice we were there other than the...
Sometimes when I travel I will stop at the Veterans of Foreign Wars clubs. They will usually greet fellow veterans with open arms. The one in Ely is the least friendly one I have ever been too. I was very disappointed.
Dress Code: Casual. Lots of VFW hats.

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.

There are new owners at Silver Rapids. They are a local family and have really updated it. The restaurant is fantastic. There is an all you can eat fish fry on Fridays that is awesome. These owners have turned around the business. It is a wonderful place to stay and play.
Unique Suggestions: No real fishermen will bring you to their "spots." Especially local people. Expect that as a response from most people. Even if they say they will take you somewhere great, it will most undoubtedly be a spot they bring everyone. Paddle further away from traffic and you will catch more. Shagawa boast walleyes. Miner's is good for trout and pan fish.
Fun Alternatives: I have camped at Miner's Lake RV Park and Campground. It was located a short jaunt from town (just past Grand Ely Lodge on Pioneer Rd). I found it close to town but away from the hoopla. Very convenient. It was right next to the Trezona Trail. So I could just hike a mile to town and do all of my shopping. Then my hubby drove, and we had supper at Northern Grounds and went back for marshmallows around the campfire. Great Site for camping and affordable rates.
