Left the Twin Cities around 2 in the afternoon and arrived at Sawbill Outfitters around 6:30. As I got out of my car at Sawbill, I instantly heard someone ferociously banging on a pot in the campground. Not only had a bear come into someone's campsite, it had tried to get into someone's car. I picked up my permit and solo canoe and then headed over to the Kawishiwi Lake Campground to spend the night before entering Hog Creek. I stayed at the same site two friends and I stayed at the night before a long trip in 2006 out of Kawishiwi Lake.
