I have been using the Way of the Wilderness outfitters for over ten years. It's been the same friendly people this whole time. They are super knowledgable on the lakes in the area and there canoe prices can't be beat. Often times we will pay for them to ferry us out to some particular island in lake Saganaga. One of the most majestic areas in MN well worth the time driving up and definetly the place to outfit your expedition. The cafe' is really good especially after a week of campfire food.
