Excellent escape into the wilds of northern Minnesota. Great campsites for small tents. I recommend a freestanding tent as some of the sites have little area to set spikes as they are located on rock facia. Bring good hiking shoes too as some of the portages can be rugged and mucky. Nothing more ironic than getting foot blisters on a canoe trip.

I've been there a few times, it's amazing if you're looking for solitude and very few amenities. It's vast and gorgeous wilderness. Where to start... seek an outfitter to help plan your first trip/ route.

I spent almost two weeks, canoeing, hiking and camping. I met two bears, lots of chipmunks, squirrels, birds and mosquitoes. Oh yes, all the jokes about mosquitoes being the Minnesota state bird are well earned. The wild blueberries were in season when I was there so I had plenty of fresh fruit to go with my dehydrated camping foods.
