All units have beds with mattresses, a small refrigerator and a table. You are responsible to bring your sleeping bag, any personal items you require,and cookware. Firewood and charcoal available at our store.

Paddler's Village is open for all seasons!

Yurts

Though generally classified as a tent, the yurt is much stronger and weather tight and is a circular structure that consists of a durable fabric cover, tension band and a wood frame that includes a lattice wall, radial rafters, central compression ring, sky dome, and a framed lockable door.

Yurts are a modern adaptation of the ancient shelter used by Central Asian nomads for centuries. Now you can enjoy a yurt on Lake Superior. The compact shape of the yurt and combination of lightweight members in tension and compression mean that the structure is highly efficient in maximizing strength while minimizing the use of materials.

Amenities

Grill and picnic table, and fire ring are located throughout the village. Bring your own sleeping bags or bedding, personal items and cookware. We do have these items available for rental if needed.
