They were recommended by friends. We did only partial outfitting, bringing our own canoe, equipment and food. They provided us a bunkhouse the night before our trip which included showers and hot breakfast. We chose to have dinner with them the evening before our trip and it was a great value. A sumptuous, delicious meal for much less than we... More

Just discovered this outfitter this summer, after the Sag store closed up we have been using Seagull outfitters and never happy with the service or the price of things. But circumstances brought us to Voyageur outfitters, thanks to the sign on HWY 12. My youngest son was in need of getting a 30 inch walleye frozen/prepped for a taxidermist to... More

Everything was perfect. The VCO crew was helpful every step of the way. Worked mainly with Ashley and she was great. Spent plenty of time ahead of the trip discussing routes. Checked in as the trip got closer. We were late checking in and she stayed at the shop late to show us some of the better campsites ensuring we... More

I've used VCO many times over the years and have always felt something not quite right and I couldn't put my finger on it. This year I think I figured it out: they make me feel like a cog in a machine. Everything is done well on first appearance, but look closer and all those emails you get before the... More

I had never been to the BWCA so when I saw the deal on Groupon in December I jumped on it. The only problem setting up the trip so early is waiting for it! My buddy and I were first timers to the area and were a little nervous about the trip. When we got to the outfitters all our... More

I have been camping and fishing with my family on Sag for over 20 years and have never wandered into Voyageurs until this year. My whole family was extremely impressed with the service we received from them! We had made a first stop at Seagull Outfitters for some bait and eggs, not knowing the services that Voyageur offered. Seagull overcharged... More

From the second we were on Gunflint Trail I knew I would love this place. And they didn't let me down. There wasn't a single person on the staff that wasn't friendly and helpful the entire time we were there. We stayed in Riverside cabin, and I honestly do not have any complaints.
