Escape to this Secluded Haven in the heart of MN's Superior National Forest

River Point Resort & Outfitting Company is a naturally superior NE Minnesota wilderness retreat. In this up-north haven, you'll find entertainment in the great outdoors. This magnificent resort sits on a private peninsula, with a mile of secluded shoreline on Birch Lake and the South Kawishiwi River. Fresh Northwoods air, pristine waters, starry skies and the scent of pine trees set the scene for days spent fishing, hiking, paddling, boating, or taking memorable trips to the Boundary Waters, outfitted by River Point. End active days in the comfort of a luxurious lakefront vacation home cabin, villa, or chalet with a fireplace and whirlpool – upscale living in the great Northwoods!


River Point embodies what makes a week at the lake a great Minnesota family tradition. In the pristine Northwoods, outdoor recreation abounds and distractions like TV and video games are better left in the city. Reconnect on the kids' first fishing trip or roasting marshmallows over the campfire.


The proof is in the fishing: Birch Lake was recently rated the No. 2 walleye lake in Minnesota. Fish the bays and coves of its more than 6,000 acres with a guide or on your own. River Point has a full-service marina, seven dock sites and complimentary fishing seminars to enhance your experience.


River Point sits on a beautiful peninsula on the shores of Birch Lake. Ninety percent of its surrounding land is undeveloped, an incredibly pristine body of water that stretches for more than 6,000 acres. A full-service marina offers swimming, boating, fishing and more on your NE Minnesota getaway.


The two of you will love this romantic escape to the Northwoods at River Point. Romance packages welcome you with a bottle of wine and gourmet chocolates, and keep you in the amorous spirit with massages, an unlimited supply of firewood for your wood-burning fireplace, and a one-of-a-kind setting.
