There are a couple of different ways to make the most of a trip to Ely. It all depends on what activities entice you the most.
- Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness: Keep things simple with a cabin nestled in the forest. Spend your days hiking, fishing and boating.
- Houseboats: Stay right on Birch Lake with your own houseboat rental. Boats are fully outfitted with sleeping quarters, living area, restrooms, and cooking supplies.
- Lake Vermilion: Spend your vacation at one of Michigan's largest lakes, with access to Ely for hot food, drinks, and camping supplies. Visit in the winter to drive a snowmobile over the lake's frozen waters.
