Plan Your Next Trip With These Helpful BWCA Resources

Various BWCA resources are invaluable to trip planning.

Located in Ely, Minnesota, we back up to Moose Lake in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness (BWCAW) which is in conjunction with Quetico Provencial Park in Canada. The boundary waters have 2100 lakes, connected by rivers, streams, and portages, and is still considered to be one of the most treasured areas in the united states. Not only can you visit this famous park but you can travel and camp in one of the last places in Minnesota that’s still as natural as it was a thousand years ago.

Below are some links to BWCA resources to help plan, learn and answer your questions for your boundary waters visit. Williams and Hall is always glad to help if you’re not finding what you’re looking for as well. Just give us a call day or night and we can help get your trip started.
