in Central MN & make several trips up by or in the BWCA. My paddling buddy got a new job & works a lot of weekends, so was looking at some solo trips. Wouldn't mind some company. What are you looking to do? Fish, paddle a lot of lakes? Rivers?

I usually stick just south of the BWCA in the Superior National Forest. No permit required, can camp anywhere you want (dispersed camping allowed) Tons of lakes, rivers, creeks.

Where are you from? How long of a trip, etc? Let me know via post or email me. Glen.

I'd love to head up that way again this year, but my schedule isn't real clear right now. If I didn't have to get an entry permit, it would be a lot easier to go on a shorter notice.
  Pretty flexible

I'm not set on any one thing and like to keep my options open. I'm in central Iowa and have been looking into permits and such. Rivers are my preferred playground, and a 2-4 day camp/float trip are what I'm looking for. My wife and I would love to do some fishing .

There are some great rivers for 2-4 day trips. Anything from flatwater paddles, to trips that include class I-III rapids. Schedules make it difficult to plan trips with others, but sometimes it works out. If you want more info on the area, this is a link to SNF maps. The one you can buy for $10 is a good map, & shows landings, forest roads and other details.This map is a MUST have before making a trip. The one you can download only shows major roads & won't do you much good.

Let me know what date(s) you're looking at. If I can't make a trip on your date(s),at least I can give you some ideas on where to go if you decide to go by yourselves.

If you want to chat a little, email me & we can exchange some info on each other.


  Did you go?

Was wondering if you ever got this trip together? I haven't been to the BW in almost 7 years and would like to see if I could get out there again sometime soon.
