Trip Router Form

Area or Park
No Preference which area I paddle
I want to paddle the BWCA
The Boundary Waters Canoe Area is located in the Superior National Park, which resides in Minnesota. It restricts the number of parties going in each day. All parties must camp at a designated camp sites which have a fire ring and a wilderness latrine. The BWCA tends to be the least expensive and easiest to set up because it requires fewer permits than the others.
I want to paddle the Quetico Provincial Park
The Quetico borders the BWCA to the north and resides in Ontario, Canada. It also restricts the number of people going in each day. It allows fewer people in than the BWCA and allows parties to camp wherever they want. This trip is slightly more expensive then the BWCA because overnight camping fees are required. Also to enter into Canada in this remote area a Remote Boarder Crossing Permit is needed which take about 4 weeks to secure.
I want to paddle the crownland area of Ontario, Canada
The crownland area is located East of the Quetico Park. This area is less restrictive and doesn't require reserving entry permits in advance. This area does require overnight camping fees for all adults 18 and over. This area does not have the same laws and regulations as the BWCA and Quetico therefor you may see others using motors in this remote wilderness. This area tends to have fewer people using it. Also to enter into Canada in this remote area a Remote Boarder Crossing Permit is needed which take about 4 weeks to secure.

How many total hours of traveling do you plan to do? This will include portaging and paddling. This is figured in total hours based on average travelers. If you are planning a 4-day trip with 1 lay over day and you want to travel 4 to 6 hours a day your total hours would be between 12 and 18 hours.
Less than 5 hours of total travel (base camp)
6 to 11 hours of total travel
12 to 17 hours of total travel
18 to 23 hours of total travel
More than 24 hours of total travel
Size of Lakes
A variety of sizes is fine
Small lakes only
Choosing small lakes only limits the other choices much. It also makes most trips have more portages.

Other interests
(Choose these only if important to your trip as they will limit the route choices.)
