The Boundary Waters National Forest and the adjacent Superior State Forest provide some of the best canoeing in the whole country. Located in northern Minnesota, about 8 hours from Chicago.
What is it like?
Canoeing at the Boundary Waters brings you out into the wilderness. Paddling through lakes and down small rivers brings you to your campsites. To continue your tour you portage your canoe and equipment down the trail to the next lake or river. Campsites are primitive, but the views of the night skies are unsurpassed. The fishing is excellent, often providing part of dinner.
