Guided Canoe Trips



Enjoy the Brainerd Lakes Area waterways with your group or family by exploring our great rivers and waterways by canoe!  Camp Vanasek will outfit your group and guide you on a paddle and/or fishing experience.

Waterways we guide are on the Mississippi River, the Crow Wing River, Gull River and the Pine River.  We also have a Sibley/Mayo/Upper Gull Lake route.

Each trip is unique.  Trip locations are dependent on water levels, current speeds and group's paddling experience.

River trips focusing on fishing will have a local fishing guide accompany the group armed with local fishing knowledge and maps.  Participants are required to have a current Minnesota fishing license and gear.

Perfect for corporate groups, families and non-profit groups.
