Great help planning our trip, great accommodation, and very friendly. Bunk house is very nice. Breakfast was great and gear top quality. They provovided transport to poplar, and pickup on ram lake. Some outfitter make you wait for transport. Clearwater was super acomodating, the help arrange an extra canoe for some late arrivals Will use this outfitter again.

The folks at Clearwater are top notch. My family and I have been vacationing with them for the past 6 years. They do everything they can to make your staff a pleasant one. I highly recommend their services.

Excellent outfitters! Very high quality and clean equipment. Setting everything up with Erik was so easy. He takes care of everything and is so helpful. Highly recommend this place to anyone interested in a great BWCA experience. Icing on the cake was our experience before and after the 4-day trip. Staff are so friendly and the service is excellent.

Clearwater is our favorite vacation each year. The staff is accommodating and friendly. We love staying in a cabin and taking day paddles into the Boundary Waters. The cabin is cozy, clean, and has everything we need. It provides a wonderful respite from the busyness of our everyday lives. The loons lure us into their calls.

Great place, cool history, great staff. Food was very good. If you are looking for spit polished chrome, this is not your place. But if you have appreciation for family, can enjoy the sounds of Loons, and like northern Mn. Book some time there. Our only regret was leaving.

Paddle in or boat in. Great fishing is a portage away on several lakes as well. Evening camp fires are great. Fresh baked goods from the... More

I don't know how many times we've been to Clearwater Lodge now, 7 or 8 times I would guess, but we keep going back. The location is spectacular, the staff is friendly and helpful and the rates are reasonable. We booked a cabin for 2016 as we were checking out Sunday.

Charlie Boy's cabin(cabin 8)...what a lovely place. So quite and relaxing with a great view of the lake. We had a wonderful stay! Highly recommend the canoe trip to the Palisades and hiking to the top. Awesome place to take photos and the views are amazing. This place in fall must be gorgeous!
