The kitchen has a water cooler to be filled from outdoor spigot, a refrigerator, a stove, microwave oven and coffeemaker. The nearby bath house has hot showers, lavatory sinks, and latrine toilets. Guests can use the on site canoes and kayaks to paddle beautiful Lake Armstrong. The gravel beach offers swimming in view of ample lakeside seating for family gathering. Guests can gather around the lakeshore firepit for a bonfire after enjoying the sunset over the lake.
Day trips to nearby Boundary Waters, hiking or biking on the Mesabi trail, all the amenities of shopping and sightseeing in and around nearby Ely can be enjoyed with this cabin as a base.
This cabin is owned and operated by Chicago Voyagers to benefit their objectives of offering outdoor programs such as biking, hiking, climbing, cross country skiing, and paddling to youth that might not otherwise have access to such activities. Getting youth out in nature is important, but the programs also strive to build self-confidence and specifically teach leadership and teamwork skills. Thank you for supporting Chicago Voyagers with your stay at Bear Cabin!
