Canoeing

Comprised of more than two million acres, the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness and adjacent Quetico Provincial Park of Ontario, Canada form one of the world’s premier canoe wildernesses. The Ojibwa carved the portage trails we still use around the foaming rapids of Basswood, and clear waters of Lac La Croix and Knife Lakes. As a Cooperator Camp Voyageur partners with the National Forest Servise to issue BWCAW entry permits to visitors.

We travel in small, efficient groups, seldom larger than seven people. Returning campers over age 14 may elect to paddle into the primitive waters of the Quetico or retrace the odyssey of French Voyageurs from camp to Lake Superior, crossing the 8.5-mile Grand Portage. Veterans may challenge the swift waters of the Missinaibi, Albany or other mighty rivers destined for Hudson Bay.
