Ely Canoe Rental & Partial Outfitting

Rent Canoe Camping Equipment for your Boundary Waters or Quetico Trip

“We rent one piece of gear or more to supplement your needs.”

Many folks just want to rent a great, lightweight Kevlar canoe for their Quetico or Boundary Waters canoe trip. If that's you, you've come to the right place. If you need a few other pieces of gear to supplement your kit, we've got that too.  We'll help you with as much or as little as you need to make your canoe trip a success!
