Ely, MN - on the shores of Bear Island Lake

About Timber Wolf Lodge

Our water, 2,362 acre Bear Island Lake, is an especially productive fishery for walleye, Northern Pike, and bass.  The MN DNR releases 900,000 walleye fry into our waters every other year as part of their fisheries program.  

With 12 cabins and 28 RV sites, we host hundreds of family vacations each year.
