WELCOME TO CAMP NORTHERN LIGHTS – Ely Guest Cabins

Camp Northern Lights is one of the oldest and finest Ely Minnesota Camps.
Located on Bear Island Lake, Camp Northern Lights is one of the most popular Ely Minnesota fishing resorts with excellent walleye, northern pike, bass and crappie fishing. Check out our fishing boat rentals and Ely MN fishing reports. We also offer guided fishing trips on Bear Island Lake and into the Boundary Waters Canoe Area.
Our Minnesota Cabins include lakefront and lakeview cabins with one to five bedrooms. Our camp cabins feature many amenities including a cozy fireplace or wood stove.
Since 1937, our 1 to 5 bedroom cabins, which sleep 1 to 14 people, have served as the lakefront home for vacationers across the world.  Let Camp Northern Lights introduce you to this one-of-a-kind region called Ely Minnesota.
