We have fishing boats, pontoons, canoes or Kayaks. Rent one for the day and explore Gunflint and Magnetic lakes. Take a paddle around Gallahger’s island, or cruise and hike to Bridal Falls. Whether your staying in one of our cabins, or campsites or visiting elsewhere on the Gunflint trial we’ve got rentals available.
Gunflint Lake is approximately 1-1.5 miles across (north/south) and 6.5 to 7 miles long (east/west). It lies on the Minnesota and Canada Border. There are no motor restrictions on Gunflint Lake or it’s connecting waters of Magnetic Lake, Little Gunflint, Little North or North lakes. You can gain access to some of the connecting waters with a 16ft or smaller fishing boat. Larger boats can access Gunflint and Magnetic Lakes but may be limited from accessing other lakes by the water level depending on the time of year.
We have crystal clear waters with water clarity that has become even clearer over the past 10 years and now averages 20ft of clarity. Lake depth on Gunflint is up to 200+ft. Dominant fish species include Lake Trout, Walleye, Small Mouth Bass and Northern. Ice out usually occurs in early May. Ice on is usually around mid December.
Since Gunflint Lies on the MN/Canada Border and there’s no Customs station, a Remote Area Border Crossing Permit (RABC or CANN Pass) is required to cross the border for any recreational purpose including fishing. You would need to apply to Immigration Canada, and it usually takes 4-6 weeks to process.
There are 2 BWCA entry points accessible from Gunflint Lake and many more within a short drive. Feel free to call if you have questions or check it out online using a link below.
There is no charge for our guests to launch their boats from our waterfront or to dock along the shoreline in front of their lakefront premium campsite. Dock space is limites and should be reserved ahead. ~Please leave Jet Skis at home!!!!!~
