Nice report. Looks like the kids loved it.

Thanks for the report - glad you had a nice trip with the kids. I haven't been to Isabella, but went in Island River years ago before the fire. I liked the area. It looks like the kids really had fun.

Great report, thanks. I can't wait until my daughter is old enough to come with me

Yes, cowdoc, the kids did love it! It's been almost 2 weeks now and I've heard my daughter talk about it a bunch of times with her friends and relatives.

Boonie, we talked about going in Island River if we go there again. It would be fun to give the kids a little river experience, along with some more portaging. Especially now that they know what to expect.

Builditbetter22, how old is your daughter? Mine is 9 now, and I thought it was a good age for her first BW trip. She's old enough to be helpful and to entertain herself. We started doing island trips with our kids when my son was about that age, but I didn't take him into the BW until he was 17. I really wish I would've brought him in earlier, though.

Nice report and glad you could take some first-timers! BTW, I like those rims better w/out center caps anyway...

Sounds like a really nice trip for you and your family. Makes me look forward to taking my kids when they are ready for it.

Thanks for sharing.

Nice report. It looks like the kids had a blast. It's been a few years, hopefully everyone has made it back since and are still enjoying their time in the BWCA. Those were some crappies by the way!!!
