Gunflint Lodge & Outfitters: Guide Positions Available



Join the premier wilderness lodge and outfitter in northern Minnesota and live, work, and play in the Minnesota Northwoods, just steps away from the Boundary Waters and Superior National Forest. Gunflint Lodge is located 45 miles up the Gunflint Trail from Grand Marais, Minnesota, our nearest town. We are surrounded by over 1 million acres of wilderness in the Superior National Forest. Guests come from all over the world to relax, fish, swim, canoe, and explore in the Northwoods atmosphere.

At Gunflint Lodge & Outfitters you will provide excellent service and quality to our guests and interact with people who enjoy wilderness adventure and who love the outdoors! We are seeking enthusiastic individuals to fill positions taking our guests angling or fly fishing, and to guide and/or outfit trips into the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness or on our natural rock climbing wall. Other job responsibilities may include taking children fishing and driving our pontoon on our local lake.

In these positions, you will have daily contact with our resort and outfitting guests, requiring a pleasant attitude and willingness to listen and answer questions. The schedules are set for 40 hours per week with two consecutive days off. Although you may be hired for a specific position, there are times when you may be called upon to fulfill other job duties. In a resort atmosphere we all pitch in wherever necessary to get the job done. With that in mind, we are looking for applicants who are extremely flexible and like a variety of work. Positions begin mid-May and may last through mid-October. Longer term positions may be available with the ability to guide ice fishing or snowmobile trips.

Housing is available at a discount rate. Recreational equipment is available for use at a minimal charge. More information in available or apply online at
