WARNING! Don't just rely on Google, MapQuest or Bing maps to find us on Lake One! Their directions are not quite accurate. It's safer to use the following directions, which accurately describe the route to take from downtown Ely to Kawishiwi Lodge on Lake One.

We are located at entry point 30 of the BWCAW - Superior National Forest - just 19.5 miles east of Ely on Fernberg Road. It's best to print out a map of these directions - available here!
