Swimming in the Boundary Waters

With the hot temperatures and long sunny days the water is perfect for swimming.  Many of our campers enjoy swimming from their campsite or from island to island.  There is something magical and mysterious about swimming in a wilderness lake.  Not knowing how deep the water is or what the structure is underneath adds to the excitement.  A loon could appear at anytime and the silence is overwhelming.  There’s no better way to start the day than to take a quick dip in the crystal clear water to wake up.  After a long, hot portage there is nothing like jumping in the lake to cool off.  Speaking of jumping; some of our more daring guests enjoy finding rocks to jump off of.  Do you know of a great jumping rock in the BWCA?  Swimming in the BWCA is just another benefit of taking a wilderness canoe camping trip and with temperatures soaring everyone is sure to partake.
