Had a great trip and Tuscarora Lodge made it easy. Ada set us up with maps and suggested routes and campsites. Their Kevlar canoes are nice and light- easy to portage. Ada delivered the canoes to the lake of our choice and Andy picked them up at the end of the trip. Super convenient! Great trip!

Rented a bunkhouse for the night before heading into the BWCA with my wife and kids. Nice to not have to set up the tent and repack it in the morning, and the all-you-can-eat french toast breakfast got us off to a good start. The bunkhouse we were in (#2) slept 6, was quiet, and the matteresses were basic but... More

Whenever I plan a trip in Tuscarora's area of the B-dub, I pick up my permit there, take advantage of their bunkhouses the night before, breakfast before hitting the lake, and showers after. They're very friendly and helpful - highly recommended.

We have been going to the boundary waters for the past 24 years, and although we generally only stay in the bunkhouse, have breakfast and rent canoes the experience at Tuscarora was without a negative. Hoping to visit for many more years!

This was our third year in a row and as always, Tuscarora and the stellar beauty of the Boundary Waters did not disappoint. The staff at Tuscarora was incredibly friendly and helpful, the accommodations clean and comfortable. It wasn't until I returned home and spoke to a long-time and faithful Tuscarora patron that I learned that an ownership change had... More

The staff at Tuscarora are incredible! I've used them in the past for outfitting previous Boundary Waters trips. Sadly, it had been about 15 years since my last trip to the Boundary Waters. Two weeks ago, I finally made a trip back. It was amazing. I forgot how much I had missed the beauty and solitude of the Boundary Waters.... More

The staff at Tuscarora made my first boundary waters backpacking/canoeing trip an incredible experience. They did a great job of making sure that we had everything we needed to have a fun and safe trip. And they were more than willing to answer all my questions over email in the time leading up to the trip. I could not have... More

5 of us (adults) staying in Cabin 5 Dec 29 - Jan 2. The cabin in really nice -- new, very clean and fresh, warm 😄and well laid out. Hosts are great -- very friendly and accommodating. Would come back again -- no question. Lots to do here and in the area. Just snowshoed to Magnetic Rock.

It was our first time there and we had a great experience. Reasonable price. The cabins were very clean and well kept. We enjoyed the lake view and had a good time canoeing in the area. The worker also helped us out big time when we encountered an issue on the lake when one of our canoes tipped. Overall, really... More

Our visit to the Gunflint area and the BWCA couldn't have gone better thanks in large part to the friendly and helpful staff at Tuscorora. Our cabin was clean and comfortable, the grounds were excellently maintained and the setting incredibly beautiful. We have found a true diamond in the northwoods and look forward to our next trip - there is... More
