LaTourell's Ideal Lakeside Base Location
We are situated on the very edge of Minnesota's famous BWCA. This area is joined with Ontario's Quetico Park to form a unique wilderness area of more than two million acres that is famous for its countless connected waterways. You will find the lakes and forests just as the French Voyageurs did on their travels here hundreds of years ago.

Our facilities on Moose Lake are located approximately 23 miles northeast of Ely at the actual end of the road. We are the closest resort and outfitter to the BWCA, Quetico Park, and Basswood Lake. From LaTourell's you have the easiest and widest variety of options to experience the spectacular fishing, abundant wildlife, and beautiful scenery the area has to offer.
