Well, it’s almost Boundary Waters permit time. Reservations for all entry points can be made on a first-come, first-served basis beginning January 28, 2015, 9 a.m. Central Time. It isn’t a mad rush for permits on the Gunflint Trail side of the BWCA so if you don’t have your travel plans set yet then don’t fret. We have great availability for most entry points well into the summer season.
It is however never too early to start planning your Boundary Waters canoe trip. It’s nice to get a couple of them on the calendar nice and early so other activities don’t get in the way of your paddling and camping fun. Prioritization is what it’s all about. I know I wish I could have spent more time in the woods this past summer.
I’m hopeful for a quality canoe trip with my family this summer. Last summer was way too busy with Abby at camp every other week it seemed. With Hannah and Tony here this winter and staying for next summer I know when we go paddling we’ll be leaving our guests in very capable hands. Speaking of Tony and Hannah, that’s who you’ll be speaking with if you’re ready to make your BWCA permit reservation with Voyageur. They are answering phones and holding down the fort while we travel all over for sports for our kids. Feel free to give them a call, they will be happy to help you plan your trip and reserve your permit for you.
