Zup’s Fishing Resort & Canoe Outfitters - Northwestern Ontario

Welcome folks,

Protected between Ontario’s Quetico Provincial Park and the Minnesota Boundary Waters lies a sparkly jewel. Lac La Croix is a 35 mile long lake teaming with 8 species of fish, creating an amazing fishery! The extraordinary beauty around each point and island will have you breathing deeper and snapping photos. Our Boat in Lodge & Outfitting Service sits on the beautiful shores of Lac La Croix. Our family tradition has been showing adventurers the ways of the wild north for 81 years… we promise one on one attention to all who come to fish and explore.

Our operation is two-fold. We have a Boat In – American Plan or Housekeeping Fishing Lodge with boat and motor fishing OR we host canoe travelers into the scenic Western edge of the Quetico Provincial Park. The Minnesota Boundary Waters Canoe Area is also an option and comprises our “back yard”.  These virtually untouched water ways lie within a million acres of a park system.

So whether you prefer a motor or a paddle, we have a package for you! We welcome you to drink in the beauty of this pristine area and enjoy the fishing of a lifetime… our northern hospitality is our specialty and our genuine pleasure. The only thing we overlook… is the lake!
