Clearwater Lake Tow Services
The Boundary Waters Canoe Area offers thousands of acres of water to paddle and sometimes the most efficient way to spend your vacation is to let us transport you to the destination of your choice.
Clearwater Lake is a large lake that is nearly seven miles in length. While it is a beautiful body of water, sometimes the trip with a loaded canoe can be tough, or even dangerous if conditions are poor. Since gasoline-powered motors are allowed on Clearwater Lake, we are able to offer this service for those who choose to quickly traverse Clearwater Lake.
If your BWCA adventure takes you through Clearwater Lake to a lake or a destination beyond, we will be happy to tow you and your equipment through Clearwater Lake for the price of $25 with a canoe rental, or $40 without. Prices are per-person and one-way. We can drop you, your canoes and equipment at any of the 4 portages that exit Clearwater Lake or any of the 7 campsites on the lake.
You can find more information about the number of permits and details about the different lakes and entry points here.
