When renting a vacation home cabin, a cabin, villa, or chalet at River Point Resort for a minimum of four nights or more, you have the option of further experiencing the wilderness at River Point's doorstep when going on the "Taste of the North Woods", 2-Day, 1-Night canoe/camping adventure. This package offers resort guests a reduced rate to try wilderness canoe/camping. This is especially fun for families who want just a "taste" of wilderness camping and canoeing.  Two great plans offered by River Point Outfitting Co.™ are available.

And, at the end of your canoe trip, enjoy a wonderful "steam" in River Point's new state of the art Finnish style sauna. Relaxing!

Option #1: Overnight in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area (US camping permit required).

Option #2: Overnight on the wilderness shoreline of the South Kawishiwi River and Birch Lake, which are adjacent to the BWCA, but require no US camping permit.  Due to the virtual uninhabited shoreline of these pristine waters, the same feeling of remoteness is yours to delight in, as you would experience in the Boundary Waters.  With either option, you will "Paddle the Quiet Side."®

No US camping permit required with Option #2.

Includes: All equipment - aluminum canoes, paddles, life vests, tent, sleeping bags, stuff sacks, therm-a-rest sleep pads, packsacks, folding saw, gas stove, cook kit and utensils. Also included are travel maps, a pre-trip routing session and transport to your wilderness entry point.

Want us to pack the food?
Add on $9 per meal per person. Typically, we pack lunch and dinner on day one, and breakfast and lunch on day two. You may select food from the River Point Outfitting Co.™ deluxe menu planner which offers many fresh entrees, as well as lightweight dehydrated food choices. Food is packed in its own food pack, and includes a kitchen camp kit (dish soap, trash bags, bar soap, scrub pads, etc.)

Want a guide?
Add on $455/day for up to four persons. $60/day for each extra person.

Want a Kevlar canoe? (lightest weight canoe) Add on $10 per person/day for either a 17' or 18' two or three seat kevlar canoe. Add on $12 per person/day for a 4-seat, 23' kevlar canoe.
