Your Northeastern Minnesota Land Surveyors

Welcome to Bear Island Surveying, Inc., your Ely, MN land surveyors located on the edge of the BWCA in northern Minnesota. We are a sister company with Bear Island Land Co., the largest real estate company in Ely, MN. Both companies are owned by B.R. (Charlie) Chernak, Broker/ Licensed Land Surveyor. Charlie has 13 years of surveying with the U.S. Forest Service in Ely and 14 years in the private sector. No other land surveying office in northern Minnesota can offer this combination of surveying and real estate expertise as well as 80+ years of combined surveying experience.

We can fulfill any of your land surveying needs anywhere in northeastern MN including property boundary surveys, subdivision layout and design, legal descriptions, easement preparation, plat development, FEMA flood plain surveys, wetland delineation, and erosion control plans. Many of our surveying clients are looking to partition property for future sales. Our knowledge of the northeastern Minnesota real estate market combined with working knowledge of county and state regulations in all aspects of land development is of great benefit to our clients. We have over 50 years of records and maps from land surveys performed in and around the Iron Range and Arrowhead region. Only a licensed land surveyor can determine property boundaries and set monuments.

Many people don't understand what a surveyor must do in order to perform a boundary survey.  Hopefully this site will provide a clearer explanation of the process involved.
