EP 62 Clearwater to Caribou: Johnson Falls, Palisade, Fishing, Fallen Tree Almost Hits Our Tent
Had been planning this trip since January. We wanted to find a lake that we could base camp, catch fish, and do fun day trips. After a bunch of research, we had settled on Caribou Lake, which is east of Entry Point 62 and Clearwater Lake. We reserved our canoes, tent, and packs ahead of time from Clearwater Lodge and Outfitters. First time using them and I highly recommend them.
We had made our permit entry date for Thursday June 8 but wanted to get there the night before so we could get an early start so we had a bunkhouse reserved for Wednesday night. We left the twin cities around 2:30 pm and arrived at Clearwater Lodge around 8:00. We were able to have our own bonfire in a fire pit right on the lake. It was a great way to start the trip.
