About Us

May we introduce ourselves? We’re Gene & Jane Ott, owners here at Packsack. We love the BWCA and look forward to sharing our facilities and outfitting skills with you. Our love of the wilderness and outdoors brought us to this area. As Boy Scout leaders we have led many groups of Boy Scouts on BWCAW trips over the past years.

At PACKSACK Canoe Trips & Log Cabins we offer first and foremost service. We offer friendly, personal service to each and every group that stays with us or outfits with us.

When it comes to enjoying all that Mother Nature has to offer, no one does it better than Packsack Canoe Trips & Log Cabins. We are outdoor enthusiasts that have created a utopia for outdoorsmen and people looking for the time of their lives in the Minnesota wilderness.  From lodging to guided canoe trips, we have everything for the perfect outdoor excursion.

The most important part of any vacation in the outdoors is where you are staying. All of our log cabins sit lakeside and are fully equipped for a rugged adventure and relaxing down times. The physical and mental demands of Minnesota canoe trips make tent camping with no real amenities unbearable. Our cabins come equipped with a stove, refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, dishes, cookware, private bathrooms and showers, clean linens and towels.

We are the premier BWCA fishing outfitter and stop at nothing to show all of our clients a canoe trip that is remarkable. We guide our canoe trips through natural lakes, rivers and ponds that are almost untouched or interrupted by man and give everyone a chance to see how nature is supposed to be. Our canoe trips will give you and your group a unique opportunity to see how beautiful and peaceful the outdoors really is.

Along with having the best guided canoe trips in Ely MN we also have some of the best fishing in Northern America. Our Quetico Park fishing trips will put you in some of the most naturally overstocked waters with the chance to catch some of the biggest and best fish. We handle everything from the boat, licenses and tackle, all you have to do is bring the will and skill.

Thank you for visiting our website. Here you can find great information on our canoe trips, Minnesota cabin rentals, fishing trips and boat rentals. Call us today and book the outdoor adventure that you have always dreamed of. We look forward to being your host.
