We have rented canoes to go into the BWCA from Sawtooth for the last few years. Great equipment and a good price. We have three young children and they are one of the few outfitters that has a canoe that can carry the whole family. The staff is always helpful and a source of great info on conditions in the...

First BWCA trip with the family! Staff at Sawtooth answered my questions about possible BWCA routes over the phone (4-day, easier route for newbies). Sarah helped me pick out what we'd need (2-seat canoe, 3-seat canoe, oars, seat cushion chairs, large pack, bear-proof barrel with straps) and answered my questions. A week later we were in their shop looking over... More

My wife and I wanted to kayak Lake Superior. We went out of Tofte. The staff was very good. They helped us with the right equipment. They checked the lake to insure it was safe. Our guide took us down the lake and went at our speed. He answered our questions as we went. I would recommend them for kayaking... More

We wanted to Kayak on Lake Superior and Sawtooth outfitters were close by where we were staying. They had modern facilities and very nice equipment. They were reasonable, professional and safety conscious. We kayaked with our guide along the coast to the mouth of where the Temperance River joins Lake Superior, rested and used the facilities and came back. We... More

Beautiful store; everything you could want and more. Friendly and knowledgable staff; good pricing. Enjoyed renting bikes, even if sore bottoms after 20-mile ride. Would definitely stop again; hopefully, bathroom working.

Rented downhill equipment for family of six. Reasonably good equipment. Much quicker and easier to rent than at the hill. Not much more expensive. Easy turn-in. Friendly staff.

We rented out canoes and gear from the Sawtooth Outiffter on Sept 04 2011. Even thought we returned after their closing time and we were able to return the gear only when they opened for the next day, they were still accommodating and didn't charge us for the extra day. The quality of the canoes and gear were good and... More

Called for partial outfitting (canoe, cook supplies, packs, thermarests) on short notice and Sarah was very friendly and accommodating. Arrived at about 8:30 on a Thursday morning and was greeted and helped right away. I immediately noticed that the packs looked brand-new. The staff help put up a temporary rack to handle their canoe and my kayak., then helped tie... More
