Seagull Lake to Alpine Lake
July 24, 2016
Seagull Lake Only
Number of Days:
We slept good that night and once morning hit us we were on our way to Alpine Lake. We saw a lot of people heading into and out of Alpine. We decided to skip the portage and took the creek into alpine. We had to walk the canoe through the water due to the current and rapids. After a few hours of paddling we reached our campsite which was on a peninsula. It was another really good site with good tent pads and cooking area. We did some fishing from shore there but it wasn't the greatest. We made the decision to stay at this spot for two nights and not to paddle into Saganaga Lake due to the threat of waves and strong winds. We ate brats that night and decided to fish the next day. Using leeches on day 3, we paddled to other parts of Alpine Lake and had an okay day of fishing. The next morning we paddled out of Alpine Lake with a group of 6 other canoes. Once we got into Seagull Lake we saw a Bald Eagle resting on a tree. After that it was smooth sailing to the car. This was our first time in the BWCA and it was definitely an incredible experience. I will definitely be back in the near future.
