  • In one respect, it's like Disney World for people who love the deep woods, but the attractions are all natural, and you're the only one in the park. There's something magical about it. If you're not a...  more »

  • Incredible service and experience. Recommend to anyone looking to escape the buzz and daily grind and set out into the wilderness for a retreat.
  • Harlan and Red Lake Outfitters are professional, skilled, knowledgeable, and thoughtful -- fantastic in every way! We took an eight-day canoe trip in Woodland Caribou this past summer, driving up to Red Lake from the United States. Harlan helped with trip planning (this was our first time in the area); local accommodations; supply and selection of some needed gear; licensing, equipment, and tutorial help with fishing (which is basically new to us); waterplane transport to and from our trip; and logistics while we were away. The entire experience was superb. Harlan's knowledge of the area was dead on. He offered great suggestions on routes, outstanding locations to set up camp, spots for wildlife viewing, and how to find solitude. He gave us tremendous personal attention and *lots* of his time, even staying after hours, so that we felt ready to go. Although we later learned that Harlan had several trips going out at the same time, we always felt like his only customers. And on top of it all, Harlan is a really nice fellow. We arranged for our first few meals to be supplied by Red Lake Outfitters, so that we could start the trip with fresh food. His food was high quality and generous in amount. The store at Red Lake Outfitters is really well stocked with top-notch brands and good variety. I picked up a few items that I had wanted for some time but didn't expect to have for the trip. We also rented a satellite phone which was a reassuring piece of gear to have and a nice option that Red Lake Outfitters offers. The water plane and pilots were professional, careful, and efficient. Harlan helped us get there and make sure we did not leave anything behind, and he stayed to see us off and came to pick us up. Red Lake stored our car while we were away. We felt safe and well cared for. Weather across the park on our last day out threatened our return time (along with many other trips), but Harlan and the pilots worked hard to get us out on time, and succeeded. I recommend Red Lake Outfitters in the strongest terms. It's among the best outfitters I've ever used. When we have a chance to return to WCPP (and we will), the first thing I will do is contact Harlan. He'll get you where you want to go, in style.
  • Way more than I expected. Great service. Great store. Truly a pleasure dealing with Harlan. Thanks again.
  • The owner Harlan is a crook. If he has reason to think you will be a one-time customer he will ask you to pay your towing fee up-front and then fail to honor his commitments when it comes time to pick you up. Red Lake Outfitters also ran out of functional satellite phones several days before our trip started, yet Harlan chose not to inform us until we showed up in person - robbing us of any opportunity to rent a satellite phone from a different outfitter on our way up to Red Lake.
  • Fantastic Outfitter! Knowledgeable about the area. Quality gear. Well stocked supply store.
