***NOTICE: Campsite and portage locations are approximated. The Forest Service periodically removes and adds campsites within the BWCA. Campsites are also often occupied by other groups so please always have backup campsites in mind which feasibility fit with your itinerary. Portage trail can be unmaintained and rerouted. When planning a Boundary Waters trip, you should purchase maps of the BWCA for use in detailed planning and navigation.
Weather can make travel dangerous or impossible in the BWCA. Be prepared to alter plans and plan according to your groups ability to navigate more difficult water.
