I have found the Recreation.gov website where daily entry point quotas (and quota availability) are supposed to be listed. But the site lists every EP as "0" available permits on every date after May 1. Is this because reservations open tomorrow?

I thought daily quotas by entry point was a year-round feature of the Recreation.gov website, and daily permit quotas by entry point was listed even before reservations open.

Is there an accurate and up-to-date list I can find?

If this is operator error, I will publically exhibit my shame for all to see!

Mike

Curious. Could you post the link where you found it? I've never been able to find it there, either.

billconner: "Warm feelings from website notification:


"Reservation Tip: Login to your account or create a new account before BWCAW Permits go on sale on January 27, 2021 at 9 a.m. Central Time. You can only add a permit to your cart and proceed with your reservation after you are logged into your account. "


Seems like getting basics like dates correct is fundamental."


Yep. I logged in and there is no change. They have several "BWCA planning guides" and other fancy crap, but I can't plan too well if I don't have the (insert appropriate curse word here) daily permit quotas.

I so hope this isn't a prequel of a repeat of the reservation fiasco of 2019.

If you just wanted quotas by entry point - unofficial - Piragis has it.

Thanks, Bill. That's good for planning purposes, and I appreciate it.

I knew it had to be out there. Advantage of being retired and not dead yet. (I got slowed by some fascinating USFS power points on use, etc.)

The quotas are on the entry point page below. It is unclear if they have changed any for 2021. It is possible.

Oh, of course.
Even so, wouldn't you think they'd have a page with a simple table of EP Number, EP Name, Daily Quota... etc? I mean, we ought to expect the official source to be the ones to let us know if there have been any changes year to year.

Once again, bwca.com to the rescue...

I think it's always like this until the system opens for use tomorrow.

I've often wondered why 55 isn't listed.

It is but categorized differently. You need to scroll down.

The only ones missing are I believe 30A and then the hiking permits.

once the online reservations start booking (today) you'll see the daily tabulations of availabilities on the set quotas.
