Birch Lake Campground is located near Ely, MN. The trail is primarily used for camping and is accessible year-round.
I spent the night in this beautiful spot. After not seeing a human for a few days of canoeing this was culture shock! Every campsite was full. But a group from Iowa invited me to pitch my tent in their area. As much as I had enjoyed the sollitude, it was nice to be hanging out with a bunch of great people.
