Canoe paddle decorations have been a long-standing tradition at the Charles L. Sommers Canoe Base. Many of the founders and staff members have chosen to share their personality through the paintings on their paddle. The paintings can represent their "call sign” or a memorable moment.
On display in the “Lodge” at Northern Tier’s Charles L. Sommers Canoe Base is the Miniature Paddle Brand collection. These are the smaller versions of those paddles that transported our canoes through the waterways of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness, Quetico Provincial Park, and Crown Lands.
Come on in, select a paddle and learn out about the owner and his or her design.
