In 1975, Bob and Pat Olson purchased Canoe Country Outfitters.
Bob grew up in the canoe country and gained knowledge in the
outfitting business through his 25 years of employment by the
Roms. At present, Canoe Country Outfitters is owned and managed by Bob and Pat’s sons, Mark and Bob Jr. Mark and Bob Jr. both have years of experience in all aspects of the business operation, working full time for many years with their parents. They even worked for the Roms during the summers prior to that.
As a full-service outfitter we are dedicated to providing personal service and the very best in food supplies, canoes, and camping equipment rentals. Providing camping and fishing trips is our only business so our entire attention is directed towards assuring you a safe, exciting, and memorable time.
See our Canoe Trip Photos!
Free trip routing and orientation is provided, whether you take complete or partial outfitting. Upon your arrival in Ely we’ll go over the detailed maps and indicate the best campsites, fishing holes, and scenic points of interest. Guide service is available if desired, but rarely is necessary.
We operate from May through mid-October.
