    While in the BWCA/Quetico, break camp early

    Free time in afternoon

    Favorite thing: Take an experienced man's advice and weigh anchor "early". You will be able to get the majority of your day's itinerary done while the lakes are still calm without the afternoon winds, and the heat of the day will not bake you.

    That way you can make camp leisurely after lunch, before all the other campers have taken everything. And it will give you some afternoon hours to swim/hike/fish without the pressure to make camp in the dark.

    Trails of Camp Menogyn

    by sketchyhand Written Jan 16, 2004

    Favorite thing: The trails throughout the camp are raised above the ground to reduce the impact and erosion caused by constant foot traffic. Do not worry, you do not have to travel far to reach remote single track nearby.

    Go to the BWCA. You need to...

    Favorite thing: Go to the BWCA. You need to get yourself one of the many outfitters in Ely. They can set you up with a canoe, & all of the equipment you need. Or, of course you can bring your own, but I would consult an outfitter to know any & all the restrictions. An outfitter is also a good place to get a permit. You must have a permit to enter to BWCA, this limits the number of visitors, and you may just have your own lake for your visit.

    Fondest memory: The air is SO clean smelling, you can really tell a differece. The lakes are so clear...it is the last frontier.
