Voyageurs Natl Park or BWaters
Posted by: MMF on Apr-28-13 11:20 AM (EST)
We've opting for Voyageurs Natl Park instead of BWaters (we don't want to hike with our kayaks). We have the Natl Geographic Map, haven't studied it yet. Any recommendations on put-ins, boat-in camp sites and routes for 2-3 night camping. Is water OK to filter?
How much boat traffic is there in mid September? Should we get skirts for our touring kayaks?

have skirts for your yaks. It can get pretty cold in sept, & water temps can be cold as well. Last thing you need is to swim & be 1-2 days from getting back. It is a beautiful area with tons of camp sites. (fees apply) Here's a link to Voyageurs FAQ. http://www.nps.gov/voya/faqs.htm You won't see a lot of traffic that time of year-mostly fishing on the big lake. Can be a little dicey if it's windy on the big lake as well-big waves.
Maps with miles?|

I believe you have to have your boat registered in either your home state, or a MN registration

Like the BWCA, the state rules apply, so yes, you have to have a registration from MN or your home state.
