Just got back from a week-long stay in Cabin 4 and had a wonderful time. We would highly recommend it for an up-north vacation. Poplar Lake is a wonderful lake to explore and with a canoe provided with the rental, and very reasonable rates for boat rental we got out an explored it. Joe provided great fishing advice, and Mike... More

Planned our BWCA trip using Rockwood Lodge as our launching point towards Entry point 47. We arrived a little later than we expected, somewhere around 10 PM. They had information posted on the door to guide us to our bunkhouse and then informed us they would see us in the morning. The bunkhouse was perfect. Beds, toilet, shower, and a... More

My husband and I stayed at Rockwwod lodge cabin #5 13 years ago. It was rustic and cozy and right on the water. This time # 5 was rented so we stayed in another cabin. Sitting on the dock at dusk was fabulous. There was a canuoe available to us. The owners were so friendly. Although it looks a little... More

I just spent a week on the BWCA with five scouts and two other adults and Rockwood Outfitters got us ready to go. Mike and Lin were awesome with help and answers to any question. Mike spent time giving us a little last minute instruction on canoe carrying and tips on what islands woudl be best to camp on. We... More

Our family of 3 had a super time at Rockwood. Not only did we learn a great deal about the BWCA and how to canoe, but found Mike and Lin to be great hosts. No question was too small that couldn't be answered and they didn't even mind the "stupid" questions from a group of three novice campers. We had... More

We stayed in a cabin at Rockwood Lodge with our eight year old granddaughter last August. It was a delightful week! Mike and Lin were congenial hosts, and we had a wonderful time on the Gunflint Trail and on Poplar Lake. Swimming off cabin #2 was excellent, our meals at Trail Center and Gunflint Lodge were first-rate. A cabin with... More

Mike and Lin provide a wonderful Boundary Waters setting. Awesome personalized friendly service with outstanding accommodations. This place was the best out of 5 other outfitters I have used in the past. Friendly and clean with plenty of great services. No need to look elsewhere.

Rockwood Lodge is a comfortable place to sit quietly and reflect. I think of the shoreline of Poplar Lake in front of the outfitter building when I want to relax. The canoes are always in top condition, and the staff are as friendly as can be. They pointed me to Lake Daniels, where I caught a 19 inch Lake Trout.... More
