I Just returned from a fishing (not catching) trip to Minnesota. Joan and Jim at Moose Track Adventures were great. We stayed at the Kawishiwi River Cabin. It's a real nice cabin just a few paddle strokes away from the Boundary Waters Canoe Area. We didn't catch many fish but it wasn't for lack of trying or lack of assistance form our host. I think we just hit a tough week to fish. I would recommend the folks at Moose Track.

We wanted a quick early fall get-a-way and this was the perfect spot! We love Ely and try and make it there at least once per year. The cabins were roomy, clean and right on the lake which was great since we brought our boat. We also liked having our own fire pit as many cabin places only have a shared one. Great place to stay and we will be back!

We had such an amazing time with family and good friends in Ely at Moose Track Adventures. Jim and Joan made our trip so comfortable and nice. The cabins were immaculate and the service was amazing. We look forward to another summer trip in Ely.

Our two weeks stay at the cabin (Moose Antler), was nothing short of wonderful.
We had easy access to the wilderness, kayaking right from our cabin on Farm Lake.
And yes, we were lucky enough to see a MOOSE! YEAH!!! (On Kawishiwi River)
Caught fish for dinner, too.
Joan and Jim were right there to meet our needs, and are a lovely interesting couple.
Our cabin was newly redone on the inside, VERY clean and well stocked.
Easy access to ELY for great food.

Jim and Joan are wonderful host and we are very thankful that they have shared their piece of paradise with us. Spending the night in a cozy cabin and then waking up to the spectacular sun rises cannot be beat.

Our teenagers swam, canoed, used the paddle boat and even wanted to attempt fishing. We even rented a motor boat. With no fishing skills, we turn to Jim for advice. A quick trip into town, where The Great Outdoors had the tackle Jim suggested waiting for us, and a map with locations marked where Jim told us to fish, had us occupied for the day. We even caught fish!

Moose Track Adventures is a wonderful place to stay and the kids were making plans for our return visit before we even left.

What peaceful sleep! Access to the BWCA directly from Farm Lake, easy drives to other BWCA lakes. We stayed in the Bear Paw cabin which was very comfortable and clean, had all the kitchen items we needed for cooking. We were supposed to have 2 teens with us, but glad we didn't since it would have been a bit tight for 4 of us in the cabin. Beautiful view across the lake from our picture window and dock. Lake was great for a swim in the evening. Jim, Joan and Josh had loads of information and advice about the area lakes and fishing, and the pictographs on a lake just a 15 mi. drive up the Echo Trail. Very clean, quiet, basic cabins and very clean grounds.

Jim and Joan at Moose Track Adventures have everything a family needs for the perfect family adventure! We enjoyed first class service, beautifully restored cabins and loads of fun canoeing, hiking, fishing and enjoying the amazing stars at night. We would rate Moose Track Adventures the top of the list for a fun filled adventure in Northern Minnesota.
