Alpine Lake is closed to BWCA travellers due to the fire that started yesterday. Paddlers may still enter both Seagull and Saganaga Lake and use the portage between Seagull and Rog as an alternate route around Alpine. Alpine Lake is closed to camping due to the close proximity of the fire. Aircraft have been using Seagull Lake to fill their water scooping CL-215’s. Fire crews are arriving on the Gunflint Trail to protect structures and provide Public Safety. Wildfires are unpredictable and there is no estimate as to when the fire may be contained. We’ll keep you updated on the situation and you can check out this website.
