What our customers are saying…


June 2018, 5 stars on Google: This place is amazing . Cabins are very clean and stocked with anything you really need. They offer a canoe with each cabin rental. The staff is so sweet and very informative, always striving to make your stay that much more amazing. The view is absolutely beautiful looking onto poplar lake . I have been coming back to this place for a few years. Even brought up my friends family to share the experience. This is definitely a place your children will also love. I have children ages 17, 13, and 8. -Kelly

June 2018, 5 stars on Google: Arranged a trip into the BWCA through Rockwood. I had never been to the Eastern area of the wilderness. Mike and Carl were very helpful with my route plan. They took care of our permit for us. Stayed in the Spruce Bunkhouse the night before we headed out. We showed up a couple hours early and everything was clean and ready for us. We only rented canoes, but they were in great shape. Carl had the canoes loaded and the coffee ready for us bright and early. He gave us some nice history of the area on our way to the drop off. I would definitely recommend Rockwood to anyone interested in exploring this beautiful area. -Ed

July 2018, 5 stars on Google: This was my second visit to Rockwood Outfitters and it was even better than the last visit! They give you plenty of equipment to ensure a great camping experience, they are super nice and care about you having a great time. We just came back and on Friday experienced a terrible storm and they actually came to the portage to “rescue” us from the storm and gave us a boat ride back to the outfitters cabin. It was fantastic, above and beyond anything we could have expected. The cabins are simple but clean and nice for staying in and even the shower house had extra towels and soaps to use in case you forgot yours or were just low. There aren’t enough stars to give them, i’d give them 10! -Annette

July 2018, 5 stars on Facebook: Back at work this morning after a week at Rockwood. It was hard to leave. We stayed in Cabin 12 and absolutely had an awesome week. Carl, Stephanie, Mike and Carol – hats off to all 4 of you and all the long hours you work to make sure everyone’s stay is enjoyable! Canoeing, kayaking, paddle boarding, fishing, hiking, visiting with Fresca, Jack & Gunner (their dogs), waterfalls, State Parks, Grand Marais, wildlife viewing, FRESH AIR, and no day-to-day city noises. Can’t thank you all enough for what you do there! We look forward to coming back!! -Pete

July 2018, 5 stars on Google: Awesome place to get away! You cant find peace like that anywhere else! -Travis

July 2018, 5 stars on Google: Our family could not ask for better service. No matter what your “adventurous” friends tell you, BWCA is completely attainable for families. Places like Rockwood make it possible. Carl and the crew have been crazy-helpful and I wouldn’t go to another outfitter hands-down. Excellent experience and categorically recommended. -Andy

February 2018, 5 stars on Facebook: We’ve used Rockwood the last few years for trips into the BWCA. The bunkhouse is always clean and ready for us before we start our trip. Staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. -Bryan

September 2017, 5 stars on Facebook: Fantastic people, I couldn’t have been happier with the experience I had here. After a tough couple days on the border route trail, the staff adapted to our needs and assisted us in getting to our vehicle early than anticipated. The facilities are clean and the shower house is a god sent at the end of an excursion!! -Chris

August 2017, 5 stars on Facebook: Carl and mike went out of their way to make sure our questions were answered, and our needs were met! You can tell they truly love what they do!! Our trip was a success thanks to Rockwoods!! -Peter

August 2017, 5 stars on Facebook: We had a great experience booking Rockwood Lodge and Outfitters. The bunkhouse where we stayed prior to entry into the BWCA was spotless and the private bathroom was more than we expected. The canoes were high tech and top of the line. We were sent off in the morning by the owners and welcomed back upon our return. They let us use the hot showers when we got off the lake after our stay in the Wilderness. These people did a fantastic job. If you enter the BWCA through entry point 47, I would start your trip at Rockwood Lodge on Poplar Lake. Nice job! -Rick
